Can you Flip without Flopping?

Flip don't flop graphic

How to find rehab or wholesale deals You can buy properties to fix up and resell (flip) or you can buy and hold properties that you rent out for monthly cash flow. Today we’ll discuss flipping houses in beautiful Tahoe. The advantage of flipping properties is that you can end up with a good return on investment (ROI) in the short term. For example, you buy a property for $100,000, and invest $50,000 into repairs. Once it’s rehabbed, your property is valued at $200,000, and you sell it for a $50,000 profit.  This is an extremely simplified version of ROI.  … Read More »

Tim’s Tips: How to Spruce Up Your Rental

For rent quick sign

You might think it looks just fine. Then again, walk around your rental property and take a hard look. What stands out as the biggest eyesore? Bring a friend with an objective eye and ask for honest feedback. Rental properties in beautiful Tahoe come in all levels of rent-readiness. If you have a rental that is unattractive, it’s going to take longer to rent out. People want to live in nice places, and properties that were last renovated in the ’70s and ’80s won’t rent quickly (or for nearly as much money as more up-to-date properties).   If you are strapped for  … Read More »

Tim’s Tips: Replace or Upgrade These 5 Things in Every Rental Property You Buy

Hands holding traditional and energy efficent lightbulbs

You have purchased a beautiful Tahoe investment property, now what?  What should you replace? What should you keep as-is until it breaks? Granted, (chances are) you have already spent so much in acquiring the property, you may be reluctant in spending any extra in renovating the place (or at least, delay until the cash flow starts coming in). For some fixes, you can reasonably delay the fix until quite some time. For other fixes, to give you a better sleep at night, you should always ensure the operations of these items. Don’t even think about ignoring these. Just do it. Here are the top  … Read More »

Should Your Rental Be Pet-Friendly?

When getting ready to rent out your beautiful Tahoe investment property one of the most important decisions you make is should my property be pet friendly or not.  If you are among the landlords that decide against this pet friendly approach, then you may be missing out on a very large section of the market.  Sixty-eight percent of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own a pet, according to the 2017-2018 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA). This is up from 56 percent of U.S. households in 1988, the first year the survey was conducted. In beautiful  … Read More »

Making Your Home Smart – Even if you’re not Nerdy

Nerdy Handyman with tools

Ever since “The Jetsons” aired on TV in the early 1960s, we’ve been dreaming of the day our own beautiful Tahoe homes would be “smart” enough to pretty much run themselves. (Tim kinda had a thing for Rosie the Robot, too.) And now that the term “smart home” seems to be everywhere, that day has apparently arrived! But what exactly is a smart home?  A smart home is equipped with technology that operates with minimal human input: You can lock your doors from miles away by pressing a button on your smartphone; or your heating/AC adjusts all on its own based on your preferences.  … Read More »
