Every investor knows that when it comes to a fix and flip, there is plenty that can go wrong. But having the right team behind you can determine whether or not you will have a flip or flop. Having the right team can enable an investor to have a consent exit strategy and a great ROI. Finding the perfect fix and flip crew can be tricky, but we are here to help!

Here are 4 professionals that you will definitely need on your house-flipping team to execute a seamless flip:

  1. A title and escrow company- ZINC recommends working with a title and escrow company that works specifically with fix and flips so that they understand the ins and outs. 
  2. A real estate agent- The real estate agent that you choose to work with should have a goes understanding of what goes into a fix and flip. For example, they should understand all aspects of marketing, such as videos, color photos, and virtual staging.
  3. A great handyman- This does not necessarily mean a contractor. This is because contractors tend to be more expensive and are not needed for purely cosmetic flips. Finding a handyman that is willing to sometimes work extra hours and that understands a quick exit strategy is vital to your flip. 
  4. Fix and Flip Vendors- Having a few specific vendors on your team will help maintain a quick and seamless flip and will provide the expertise that you may not have. For example, ZINC uses 4 specific vendors: A HVAC contractor, a home inspector, a roofing company, and a pest control company. Government financing agencies have certain restrictions on collateral and need to have specific assurances from your vendors.
