Five Surefire Ways to Lose Money on Your First Flip (and How to Avoid Them!)

We talk all the time about how to do things correctly and make money on your deals, but you need to know what NOT to do as well, if you really want to be successful.

If we do not learn from the past, we are doomed to repeat it!  In this lighthearted presentation, Justin Cooper from Pine Financial Group will walk you through MOST of the mistakes he made on his first flip.  He will point out all of the things that he would have (and has since) done differently.  Save the time and expense of the steep learning curve that comes with investing in real estate and piggyback on Justin’s experience.  Topics will range from having the right team in place, to having a scope of work (yes, you need one!).  You may not leave the presentation with a deal, but you will leave with enough information to make sure your next deal is a profitable one!
