On this podcast episode I talk about how much you should offer on a property, which is directly related to knowing what the house is worth.
We establish what a house is worth by estimating the After Repair Value or ARV. We calculate this by looking at three things:
1. Comparable Sales - what houses sold for
2. MLS - what is currently listed for sale
3. MLS - inventory and pricing of houses
Only by looking at the past (what houses sold for), the present (what is listed on the MLS), and having a pulse for what is going on with our market (inventory and pricing), are we able to really know with confidence what we can sell a house for.
Once we establish this number, if we know what the repairs will cost then we can use a simple calculator to estimate our profit potential. I developed a Rehab Property Calculator for my students which you can access at http://www.lexlevinrad.com/rehab-property-calculator.
This calculator is also available in the app store for both Android and iPhone - you can find out by searching for "Rehab Property Calculator". That way you can use the app in the field like my students do, to estimate your profit potential on fix and flips.
