Let's face it--fixing and flipping houses is sexy. Who doesn't love the idea of buying a rundown, mold-infested shack and transforming it into someone's dream home for massive profits? Reality TV shows make it look so easy. A little paint here, some new kitchen cabinets there, and presto! The house is sold for big bucks and everyone lives happily ever after. If only it were that simple. Fixing and flipping houses is a business. In order for a business to survive, prosper, and grow, systems must be put in place. Fixing and Flipping Real Estate: Strategies for the Post-Boom Era is a book that breaks down the four essential components of a fix-and-flip business, giving you the building blocks to efficiently buy and sell 1 to 20 properties a month in today's post-boom era housing market. You'll learn about each of the boxes: * Acquisition--How to find and buy a profitable real estate deal. * Rehabbing--How to systematically remodel a house and how not to underimprove, or overimprove, your property. * Sales--How to sell your flip for the highest possible price in the shortest possible time. * Raising Capital--How to get the capital you need to grow your business, including using other people's money, for your real estate deals without getting sued or going to jail. In the post-real estate boom era, fixing and flipping is again a solid business--especially in the "sand" states--Arizona, California, Nevada, Texas, and Florida, among others. It's also a good bet in states as diverse as North Carolina and Washington State. And with the real estate market projected to bottom out nationally in 2012 (this time for real), there are plenty of houses to be renovated and plenty of money to be made by the enterprising in all fifty states. This book shows real estate investors everything they need to know to get started fixing and reselling houses either as a substantial sideline or a full-on business. What you'll learnReaders will learn how to: * Buy bank-owned houses, short sales from underwater homeowners, and foreclosures at auction. * Determine your target neighborhood, price point, and property. * Calculate accurately repair expenses, holding, and closing costs. * Negotiate with contractors, tradespeople, and suppliers for the best pricing. * Get distressed home sellers and Realtors calling you first about great deals. * Use other people's money to help you reach your financial goals. * Manage risk and invest conservatively and responsibly in real estate to protect your capital. * Improve greatly your chances of success by fixing and flipping houses as a business rather than as a hobby or a lark. Who this book is for If you've ever thought about supplementing your current income by fixing and flipping a house, or quitting your job to make flipping houses your full-time business, then Fixing and Flipping Real Estate: Strategies for the Post-Boom Era is the book you need. It is for motivated, entrepreneurial self-starters who want to earn an extra $10,000 to $200,000 a year while reducing the risk any real estate investment entails.

Is it possible for a group of the world's most respected environmental scientists to truly practice what they preach? Can their expertise in climate change help them in transforming an old house and its nine acres into their new office building and campus - a building that is as energy efficient as possible, uses local materials, and generates all of the energy it consumes? In this candid, charming, and informative book, the director of the renowned Woods Hole Research Center tells a story that will interest anyone who has ever thought about doing a "green" rehab, has tried to build green, or just wonders what's actually possible. The Woods Hole Research Center is an international leader in identifying the causes and consequences of environmental change. When the WHRC needed a new administration building, its scientists and staff decided that the building should utilize "state-of-the-shelf" green building techniques and materials. However, the new office had to conform with the laws and building codes of the time, and with materials that were then available - no matter how frustrating these requirements were to the resident scientists and contractors. The author, George M. Woodwell, founder of the WHRC, was intimately involved in the design and construction of the Gilman Ordway Campus, which was completed in 2003 in collaboration with McDonough + Partners. He details the challenges they faced, some of which are familiar to everyone who tries to "build green": the vagaries of building codes, the whims of inspectors, the obstreperousness of subcontractors, the search for appropriate materials, and the surprises involved in turning an old house into a modern office building. Woodwell puts the building in a larger context, not only within the work of the Center and the tradition of Woods Hole, but in the global need to minimize our carbon emissions and overall environmental impact. Building a world that works requires rethinking how we design, reuse, and live in the built environment while preserving the functional integrity of the landscape.
