Income From Flipping

Buying a multifamily property, remodeling, and then reselling can be even more profitable than flipping single-family homes because as you remodel, you can increase rents.

BRRRR stands for buy, rehab, rent, refinance, repeat. An investor buys a property, renovates it, and rents out the newly refurbished units for more money.

Multifamily homes were designed for cash flow. Space and amenities are optimized to bring in money for the investor.
