For the last 15 years, Pat Dornan has been a Maryland licensed general contractor. He is also a MD registered home builder, Project Management Professional (PMP), and is EPA-certified for safe lead removal. He bought his first investment property in 2006 and has been a full-time investor for 4 years. Prior to that, Pat was an IT professional for 23 years where he invented the Internet (with 600,000 of his friends).

In January 2017, Pat founded Serenity Software, Inc. and created Ultimate Rehab Estimator to meet a need he saw every day. Investors need to know what to look for and what the repairs/improvements to a property will cost. Contractors simply cannot go to every property with them and do estimates on each one, knowing only 1 in 50 might be closed upon. The investor is on his/her own. Well, they used to be!

All a buyer has to do is measure – exterior or interior and tell the app what they want to do. Repair, replace, build, paint, whatever. Ultimate Rehab Estimator does all of the math, produces a Statement of Work, Bill of Materials, and has a Deal Analyzer to help the investor decide if they might make a profit.

What you’ll learn about in this episode:

  • Tips and tricks investors use when evaluating potential properties
  • The app that can transform your property investment business
  • Which book helps new investors get through the “what now?” phase of each new project
  • How you can learn to evaluate a property for profit on the initial walk through – before you buy
  • The importance of managing expectations when attempting a rehab and keeping them realistic
  • Things to look for that may signify a bad investment
  • Why high-crime areas are rarely good locations for investment properties – no matter how good the deal may look on paper
  • Why you should never leave tools and materials on job sites in questionable locations
  • Why you make your money when you buy, which is why it is so important to choose your investments wisely when you plan to rehab properties
  • Avoiding buying properties in locations that are going to prove difficult for selling rehabbed properties

As the owner of Rehabs 2 Riches, Alton Jones has spent his life making connections. Right out of high school, he joined the Los Angeles Police Department and became a police officer. During that time, he had a lot of interesting experiences and met a variety of fascinating people. Now, 30 years later, he’s still a reserve officer.

In 1996, Alton joined Primerica Financial Services and became a licensed life insurance agent, eventually rising to the position of Regional Vice-President. A few years later, things changed. He saw families and good people experiencing tough times due to a bad economy and a terrible real estate market. If things had been a little different, it could have been Alton and his family in the same situation. He knew he wanted to help somehow, to give back. That’s what motivated him to earn his real estate license and establish West Coast Home Buyers, LLC., purchasing and remodeling homes to make them affordable for local homebuyers.

Working alongside his mentor, the legendary Ron LeGrand, 14 years of real estate experience taught Alton two things. First, rehabbing homes is a way to help others, giving them a chance to buy beautiful and secure homes. Second, by working hard and working smart, rehabbing can be highly profitable.

Keith Baker began painting houses in high school and worked construction through college, renovating houses in addition to performing rental make readies and rehabbing flips for investors while earning a degree in Philosophy and German. He never took a class in real estate, finance, accounting or business. Everything he’s learned about business, real estate, and lending has been through practical experience: successes and failures.

He started his own construction/general contractor company after college. After closing his contractor business, Keith worked as a Construction Manager at McGuyer Home Builders (Pioneer and Plantation Homes). When the housing market peaked and began to crumble, he jumped head first into a field position with an oilfield service provider: Schlumberger and then parlayed my oilfield knowledge into a career as an energy loss adjuster.

When Keith decided to invest in real estate, he hadn’t yet developed the confidence to speak to sellers, so he bought his first investment property from his parents, just to get things moving. He and his wife then house hacked their way through their starter home, which we slowly flipped for a nice profit. Then Keith decided it was time to become a landlord, which was a painful experience.

Because he travels so much for a day job that he actually enjoys, Keith converted an old 401(k) into a self-directed IRA (with Quest IRA) and began private lending to local real estate investors to keep himself in the real estate investing loop, close to the action, and to expand his network. Through private lending he bought my first rental property from a potential borrower and met his partner, Landon. Together he and Landon formed Asset REI, which focuses on providing owner financing for both buyers and properties that are neglected and overlooked by the conventional “too big to fail banks.” Thus they become the bank!
