Def Leppard Final House Flip Numbers

Danny Johnson / 11 comments

Here are the final numbers for the Def Leppard House Flip.

House Flip Timeline

Purchase Date:June 13, 2011
Listing Date:July 21, 2011
Contract Date:September 26, 2011
Closing Date:October 21, 2011
Total Days From Purchase To Resell: 130 Days (Just Over 4 Months)

We had a very interested buyer right out of the gate, but they didn’t want to wait over 60 days to close because of the darn FHA 90 Day Flip Rule nonsense. 🙁

Take a look at the closing costs when selling. That hurts. We still made a great profit however and from start to finish did not require a whole lot of time. The rehab was light and easy. This was really a pretty good flip. 🙂

    geeeeez…look at those holding and closing costs!! But that’s reality….something those shows on tv never talk about. There’s more to a P & L (Profit & Loss) statement than purchase price, repairs and sales price.
    Good stuff!

    Aren’t you cheating on the numbers a little bit… a “buyer’s assistance” is essentially a straight line reduction in the purchase price. You sold it for $159k versus your estimate of $170k. You’re making your sale price look better and skewing your closing costs with the way you’re organizing things. Not that it matters, the return is still the same.

    I love your information. You make the process very real. I think a lot of would-be investors hold back out of fear. I am a real estate broker and I too laughed every time the reality Flip show as they give the profit which is not the net profit after expenses, etc. Thanks for these posts.

    Crongrats on more success! It’s great to see what you’re doing. While everybody and their brother are saying flipping is impossible, it’s guys like you that remind us to laugh at the foolish naysayers. Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing it!
