311: DIY Real Estate Hacks That Will Save You a FORTUNE on Your Deals w/Shaun Kelly
Some simple DIY investing hacks could save you thousands of dollars. But, as a rookie, the thought of tackling your own home renovation projects might be a little intimidating. Bringing sweat equity to a deal, however, can help you save a ton of money and even make you more valuable in a partnership.
In this episode of the Real Estate Rookie podcast, we’re chatting with Shaun Kelly, whose road to real estate investing was anything but fast or easy. Shaun spent nine years in the analysis paralysis phase before he finally pulled the trigger on his first deal. Since then, he has built a portfolio of nine properties in four years and has refined his DIY skill set to the point where he can perform all types of rehab projects for a fraction of the typical cost.
Whether you’re looking for creative ways to increase profits on your investment properties or bring value other than capital to a partnership, tune in to hear Shaun’s biggest money-saving DIY hacks and his journey, from making simple fixes to performing major home renovations. Ashley and Tony discuss their own experiences with DIY projects and list the jobs they prefer to outsource to a pro!
