Comprehensive Guide on fix and flips

I’ve read (or listened) to probably 15 books on flips and/ or rehabbing houses and this is the most in depth one I’ve read. I’ve been a fan of bigger pickets and have listened to a couple of the podcasts Jay has been on and recommend giving those a listen if you doubt the benefits this book will have on your real estate investing career. Wonderful read and I’d recommend it to anyone in this sector.

Good on the details

First off, thank you for making this available on Audible. This book takes you into some of the everyday workings of buy, renovate and selling a property. I say some, only because it takes doing to truly understand all aspects of the project. Even though it is the book on flipping houses, it is applicable to buy, renovate and hold (rent.)

Great actionable content

Great insight provided by an extremely experienced author! I was surprised at the audio narration misses though. Many instances of repeated lines by the narrator.

J did a nice job providing real and useful information rather than just guru motivation like some real estate books out there

This book was an excellent review of what is entailed to be successful in flipping properties. I would recommend it to anyone thinking about flipping houses and for those who flip houses. For those who currently flip, you are sure to find some golden nuggets you can apply to your flips.

Great “How To” Book

This book was recommended by Brandon from BiggerPockets and was WELL worth the read. I listened to it on Audiobook but ordered a paper copy so I could read and HiLite and write notes. It’s that good and full of useful information.

Enjoyable and encouraging.

I found myself going back through past chapters and re-listening to them along with writing down notes. I would recommend this book to people who are interested in getting into the game. I am probably going to be getting the paperback version of this book just so that i can go back through. There are a lot of good lessons that are in this book. The way the book is read out loud is a bit difficult understand at times due to the book being written in many small chapters.

Solid

The step by step process approach is excellent. The author is clearly expert. It is not fluff. It is a straightforward how-to book. It is worth listening to every chapter. As I do more first flip it was good to hear what I got right and some ideas I had not considered. Highly recommend

A wealth of information!

Speaking from a rookie real estate perspective, Scott provides a ton of useful information presented in a well planned (like he runs his business) manner. I will be listening to this multiple times.
