Ok

Useful, but could have been better. I would have appreciated if the whole repair estimate checklist would have been read at the end. It was indicated it would be easily available on his website but I didn't find it to be the case .

Giant ranges of estimates. Some helpful info.

The book should be titled “a short book of tips to help with rehabs” as it does contain some helpful information. There is not much value as far as helping estimate costs as he just throws out huge ranges that it “could” be in one instance the range is $1000-$10,000. This isn’t helpful information. I wouldn’t spend $4 on it.

Simple, helpful as I’m getting started.

This book’s charm is in its simplicity. It does not claim to be more than what it is, yet it effectively gives helpful advice in a succinct manner. I have found the process of estimating rehab costs to be daunting, but this helps to bring the task within my reach. Well worth the Audible credit + 1.5 hours spent listening.

Underwhelmed

I was expecting more from this than simply saying X rehab would run between $X - $XX, which even that is an oversimplification as prices will vary by location. If you’re looking for more information than a generic estimate for the VA, MD, and DC area I would look elsewhere.

Not worth the money

Not worth the money. An utter and total disappointment. Just another wannabe who wants to suck dry would be real estate flippers of their money. General info that is useless. Do not spend your money on this so called guide. You will learn much more if you google basic concepts online for free.

Straight Forward

The best part of the book is the straight forward style of the author, the nuts and bolts of the industry without fluff or entertaining prose. It will enable the reader to take the information, implement it and learn.

So general.. it's not worth the $$ you spent on it

This is a really bad audiobook. You can read free websites that offer more information than this garbage. Save your Money. I'm going to have to refund this one.
