How to Quickly Flip a House in New Jersey

“How do I sell my house quickly in New Jersey?”


That’s one of the most common questions of homeowners in the area. But, arguably an even more common question is, “how do I flip a New Jersey house quickly?”.


The allure of flipping real estate is hard to resist. The combination of making potentially easy and fast money, as well as the popularity of house flipping because of the many HGTV shows that glamourize this, make it an interesting venture.


Doing so is much easier said than done, however.


Between the monthly costs, taxes, maintenance, and mortgage payment and making sure that you sell the house quickly enough to recoup your initial investment, flipping a house takes a lot of effort and a certain amount of luck.


Below are tips that you can follow if you want to sell your New Jersey property quickly.

1. Have a budget and stick to it

One of the more common mistakes that first-time investors make when they start flipping houses is that they end up spending way too much and recouping way too little once all is said and done.


Among the most common culprits is taking on more renovations and not finding out which repairs and upgrades are the most cost-effective.


When buying real estate for potential investment, make sure that your focus is not just sprucing up the place, but making sure that there are no hidden problems. Ensuring that everything is in order is more important than making the house beautiful. Also, if it’s your first time, try to avoid large renovation projects.


Stick to the small projects, even if it means that you won’t be making as much of a profit.


Build up your reputation and try to gain experience first.

2. Don’t forget to network

Your professional network, which should consist of a team of trusted contractors, is arguably more important than your network of potential buyers.


Before you decide to take on a particular project, you should already have people lined up waiting to take on whatever it is that you want them to do. More importantly, they should be willing to do it at an affordable price without compromising on the quality and on the deadline.


As you expand your operations, your network will grow from contractors to include agents, lawyers, accounts, and even cash buyers, who will always be the first to tell you that “We buy houses NJ” for a fair price.


Remember, the best deals and most profit are made through networking.

3. Don’t be afraid to outsource

As tempting as it is to take on the entire renovation project by yourself, you’re probably better off outsourcing some aspects to more experienced professionals, or contractors that you can trust so you can work on multiple projects at once.


Your goal should always be quality. Never sacrifice on it. Otherwise, it will show, and your reputation will be ruined.

4. Be as objective as possible

The less emotional attachment that you can have in the properties that you end up buying and flipping, the better. If you have zero emotional attachment, then that would be ideal.


To your clients, the house you’re selling is a home. To you, it’s just a product.


Treat it as it should be — a product.


Focus on renovation projects that actually increase the value, but try to avoid “personal” touches that you think fit well with the space but do not objectively make any sense.


By sticking to neutral tones, you make the house appeal to a wider audience. At the same time, you also get to keep your costs low. However, don’t be afraid to splurge a bit as well, especially if the space warrants it and it helps increase its value or makes the house sell quicker (or if you already have a buyer lined up that has specific instructions).


Whether you’re looking to start flipping houses, or need help selling a property in New Jersey for cash fast, we can help you because we buy houses NJ and close deals in less than a month so you don’t have to worry about your property not being posh or good enough to be listed on the market.

Ken from Cash Buyer NJ was a pleasure to deal with. I filled in and sent the online questionnaire, Ken called me ten... minutes later, we made an appointment and two hours later he was at my house. Ken did his due diligence and in two days we agreed on the price. The sale was as is so I only moved what I wanted and left the rest. The closing was completed on time. Ken is honest, and a gentleman who you can take at his word. The whole deal couldn't have gone smoother!read more

Can't say enough about Ken and his team. This was the most seamless sale I made. I didn't have to deal with all the... nonsense that comes with selling your home. They bought my house as is, I didn't have to declutter and pay a broker commission. All in all great experience, will do business more

Selling my property too Ken was the best thing I did. Although I was skeptical at first I soon found out how... professional he was. Even though my closing contract was not standard because of the pendemic situation. He followed through on time with all the contract terms as promised. Thank you Ken for your professionalism.Alfredo Gread more

Ken was referred to us by someone who had sold their home thru Ken last year. From the first meeting to the last... transaction, Ken and his team were professional, efficient, easy to work with, and above all.... caring. Each seller's situation is different, and Ken truly understands that. We were treated with respect each time.Since we were in a time crunch situation, selling our home with a cash offer from Ken was the best decision we could have made. We were perfectly okay with getting slightly less money for our home as compared to selling it via an agent. But if you consider the money saved on agent commissions (both buyers and sellers), closing costs, repair costs, attorney fees, and most important of all... time and headache, you can't beat the option to sell your home with a guaranteed cash offer from a reputable buyer like Ken.My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with Ken. If you are in the market to sell your home fast for a cash offer, I highly recommend giving Ken a call!Best of luck!Vishread more

Ken is a very professional individual from start to finish. As promised, he gave me a fair deal on my one of my... properties that was in rough shape. He was knowledgeable and responsive to my requests and as promised we didn't need to waste time with inspections and appraisals and we closed quickly. He made it painless as possible by having his crew handle the clean up. This was truly a quick and easy process but a professional individual. Thanks Ken!read more
