Residential Rehab Budget is a course that aims to teach students how to create accurate rehab estimates so they will gain the confidence to negotiate with contractors, compare bids, and place accurate offers before competitors. Licensed Real Estate Agents and Experienced Investors lead students through a series of classes and key topics.

What should be included in a rehab project and how to price it

A critical part of the due diligence process is coming up with the repair budget. Contractors seldom help investors come up with a repair budget before an offer is placed. This class gives investors the basic knowledge in remodeling and pricing of residential rehabs. Students learn to determine the ‘After Repair Value of homes and how to accurately calculate repair costs.

Life happens in the bathroom and kitchen. A well-designed bathroom and kitchen will generously increase profits. This class also covers the basic cosmetics for interior and exterior such as painting and texture.
