I’m not sure what you want to do. You no doubt have more experience than I, but if you want to do rehabs in a more “cost efficient” manner, I would think that would be a matter of finding different contractors to do the work and negotiate cheaper rates. Or finding new people to “wholesale flip” to.
If you want to increase the number of methods of finding foreclosure properties, then I would suggest buying Joe Kaiser’s course, “Totally dominate your foreclosure marketplace”. This will show you some “triggers” that might be effective in your area for finding these types of properties before everyone else does.
If you’re looking to add new ways of RE investing to your arsenal. I would suggest reading all the articles on this site as well as the postings here. Then decide which appeals the most to you.
If you want to continue flipping, only increase your volume, then I would pay particular attention to threads containing the name, “Jackie from Dallas”. She has done about 80 flips in the last 2½ years.
Everybody wants to make more money, but from your post, it is not apparent which way you want to go from here. Except that you want a “cost efficient” way to do this.
Maybe you want to get involved with lease options. In that case I would suggest you get the Bronchick course, “Lease Options Workshop” and Joe Kaiser’s course. “The Ultimate Lease Option Strategy”.
These courses are not expensive and since you have already been flipping for a year, there should be no problem affording them. If there is . . . then you definitly need them!
