Lately, there are ads offering contracting services on social media, flyers, and in other advertising by people masquerading as contractors who look legitimate. So rehabbers, especially new ones, trust them and use them only to lose a lot of money when they get scammed by these fake contractors who do substandard work then run off with their money. It’s often only after this has happened that we hear about these debacles. This is something we don’t learn by watching the house flipping shows on HGTV.

I now believe that there are people out there who are put on this earth solely for the purpose of ripping us off and wasting our time. This is why we asked two HONEST experts to tell us how to find and manage good contractors on our rehab projects.

Licensed residential builder, Wayde “Eddie” Sabina, and Realtor/investor, Blaire Kobliski, will tell us how to properly prescreen out the scammers so we only use legitimate contractors, and then manage those contractors on our house rehabs to maximize the values, and profits, we get on houses we sell after rehabbing them. We’ll hear about managing contractors from an actual contractor with a valid license as well as from an actual rehabber who is making full-time profits from part-time work.

Eddie has been a licensed residential builder since 1998 who can not only rehab existing houses but can also build them from scratch. He is a licensed home inspector as well. Eddie has seen it all from great work to merely good-looking covers over rotten wood. Not much gets past him now.

Blaire is a real estate investor and house rehabber who started looking into real estate investing 2 years ago and purchased her first flip in August of 2019. She is currently working on her 3rd flip and has averaged $30K profit per flip so far. She has learned a lot in a short time. When Blaire isn’t working on a rehab, working with real estate clients, or touching ALL the tile…she can be found enjoying her horse, Woody, smoking a good cigar, or traveling with her family.

Don’t miss this training if you want to learn from folks who are actively and successfully rehabbing houses.  Eddie and Blaire have a lot to teach us from avoiding money-losing pitfalls to using money-making tips. This meeting will be an open and informal Q & A during and after this interview so be sure to bring questions with you.
