Your instructor: rehabber Katheryn McGill

Want the rewards of rehabbing, from big paydays to the satisfaction of creating beautiful homes?  Want to avoid costly mistakes along the way?  Let local expert Katheryn McGill will share her expertise with you. 

You may know Katheryn as the moderator of our Savvy Women Investors Meeting (SWIM).  For several years now she has rehabbed successfully in the Baltimore metro area, with projects including both row houses and detached houses, in the city and county.  

She lays out her rehabs for how today's homeowners live.  Her finishes are economical yet have a huge "wow" factor.  Her staging is spectacular.  And her rehabs often set the new high comps for the neighborhood.

Here’s what you and Katheryn will explore
  • Why you may want to rehab: expected paydays… a bad reason to rehab… a bonus reason

  • Tough love: the truth about rehabbing… the risks… the ups and downs… it’s a job (a well-paying job if you do it right) 

  • Where to rehab — including the single biggest mistake newbies make

  • What kinds of houses to rehab, and what kinds to avoid — hint: you want a house that has “the right things wrong with it”

  • How to work with contractors — and what to do when you find yourself working against a contractor — from hiring to firing

  • The scope of work — how much detail do you need?

  • The draw schedule — how much to pay and when — including when not to pay

  • Contractor’s lien release and warranty

  • Being your own general contractor — advantages and disadvantages — are you ready for it?

  • What insurance you need, and what contractors need

  • Licensing: who needs it?

  • Permits: where and when do you need ’em?

  • Estimating rehab costs — the second biggest area where newbies make mistakes — why you must be able to do it fast

  • What to do in your rehab — what not to do — where to spend your money — whose opinion matters — with plenty of photos to show you exactly what sells

  • Crunching the numbers: the quick formula vs. the long way

  • To stage or not to stage

  • Dealing with the buyer’s inspection addendum

  • Finding deals, funding deals, and choosing a business entity.  The primary emphasis on this class is the rehab itself, but we will address these other areas.  
Your generous support materials include a wealth of documents
  • Property intake sheet — a quick form to help you determine if the property is even worth considering — including red flags to avoid
  • Two formulas for calculating offers — line-item and square footage — to help you make offers fast with reasonable accuracy
  • Scope of work
  • Checklist from closing to closing
  • Independent contractor agreement
  • Workers Comp form
  • W-9 and 1099
  • Lien release and warranty
  • Form for firing a contractor  

PLUS: After you spend a Saturday online learning with Katheryn, you'll join her for a property tour the following Saturday to put your new knowledge to work -- and maybe even find your first rehab project! 

You'll visit 3 properties on the market, courtesy of Realtor Andrea Mann, one of Baltimore REIA's Preferred Partners.  You'll determine how you'd improve the property, and you'll use Katheryn's estimating sheet to come up with your ballpark rehab cost.  Andrea will help you estimate the after-rehab value.  Then you'll come up with an offer -- and if you decide to submit one, Andrea can do it for you.  

PLUS: The ultimate FREE BONUS bonus for a new rehabber: Katheryn will share the contact info for her proven contractors.

Contractors can make or break your project.  This free bonus is reason enough to take Katheryn's class!

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Don't make the mistake of thinking you can learn how to flip a house by watching TV shows or Internet videos.  There's big money at stake when you rehab a property.  Even when you borrow money to do it (and you'll learn how to do that), you're ultimately responsible.

Please invest in your education before you get started.  This class will help you earn far more profit on your rehabs, and -- just as important -- help you avoid costly mistakes. 

You've heard the saying: "You get what you pay for."  All too often, free information on the Internet is worth what you pay for it: nothing.  Or worse, it ends up costing you money.  Instead, invest in yourself by investing in this class!

P.S.  From David Page, Executive Director of Baltimore REIA, and former instructor of the "Rehabbing for Big Rewards" class.  "I've seen how Katheryn does a rehab, and I've been blown away by her creativity, as well as the quality of the work.  No wonder she gets top dollar for her rehabs.  It's my privilege to pass the 'Rehabbing for Big Rewards' torch along to Katheryn."
