Welcome to Finance & Fury’s Say What Wednesday
Today’s question is from Lucas, “Hey guess, just wondering if you think that flipping houses is a good strategy? Can you really make a living flipping houses?”
Good question! Flipping houses has become very popular but it’s not as easy as you think.
Finding the property
It’s the same process for any property purchase (researching, etc):
Does this work? Here are some examples.
Buy something for $450k, with a 10% deposit (so, you’ll need $45k plus other costs)
Scenario 1 –
$2 for $1 every spent
Scenario 2 –
$1.50 for every $1 spent
Legal fees, registration, pest inspection, etc.
Stamp Duty (QLD)
LMI (10% deposit)
Renovation & ongoing costs
Interest expenses - 8 months
Agent fees, advertising
Taxes - CGT (If not living in and only income)
The Bottom Line
When it goes right:
EVERYTHING needs to go right – it’s hard to make a lot of money if you don’t have much experience.
