JP, definately sounds fishy to me, unless he’s wholesaling… big difference between wholesaling and rehabbing.
I am not trying to make the case that NO ONE out there is lying… lord knows there are enough lies or half truths out there by “gurus”. My point was that the most I have ever heard so far is in the 50s-60s, and I believe that that is an accomplishable number with an experienced and well groomed machine.
Anyone claiming they are doing 100+ rehabs a year and they are running the whole show… I am going to have to come to his town and watch the guy before I am going to buy it.
The highest claims I have heard personally, and admittedly I am not out there culling for GURU claims, is a woman named Robyn Thompson in CT, who claims about 60 +/- a year now… and in her telling of her story, she did something like 6 or 7 year one twenties I believe year two and I could be wrong but hit 50 in year 3 or 4… and she comes across from what I have seen of her as very credible, and my questioning of old timers about her come back positive as well… or in other words, “she’s for real”.
Anyone claiming they are doing 100 rehabs a year, who is coming out of left field, I am going to be as skeptical as the day is long on them. I definately don’t buy any guy claiming 100 rehabs a year with a staff of 2 sales people and a book keeper bald faced… want to see that one to buy it, because if he is, I want to know HOW he is leveraging his time… because at that level, I am hard pressed to see how its being done.
Don’t get me wrong, there are all sorts of outrageous claims made by these various gurus… and the buyer should be skeptical. And anyone claiming 100 rehabs a year with no staff to speak of… that’s definately something I want to see first hand.
