Top 4 Tips for Rehabbing a House

Property rehabbing is a difficult part of the house flipping process. This is because when rehabbing a house there is often many pieces of the whole process to remember and as you all know, houses or property vary in different ways. This can sometimes make you lose track of the rehabbing process and your house might become more attractive to the buyers. Here are some of the tips which can be of great use to you when rehabbing your house in Hudson County.

  1. Prevent theft while in the rehabbing process

When you are rehabbing your house, it will be left unoccupied for some period of time. Rehabbing a house can take 2 to 4 months to be completed. Leaving the house unoccupied means that it is vulnerable to thieves or people who will just come and destroy your property. Due to this reason, here are some of the things you can do to prevent vandalism in your home:

  • Change all the locks
  • Barricade the doors and windows that can’t lock
  • Keep the lights on throughout the day and night
  1. Buy a new mailbox

Usually, the first thing that a buyer will see when coming to your house is the mailbox. This will determine whether he or she will like to buy the home or not. To keep the buyer’s expectations higher, you need to replace your mailbox if it has rusted. In Jersey City Heights, there are many shops that specialize in custom mailboxes and be sure to get one that will impress the buyer.

  1. Light the house with bright lights

People do not want to live in dull houses. As a flipper, make sure that you install proper lighting that will illuminate every part of the home. However, do not install the yellow bulbs. The bright white lights can be great for the home. Proper lighting will attract potential buyers to your home.

  1. Conform your house

Conforming a house simply means installing matching fixtures. These include things such as doorknobs and door hinges. For example, in your bathroom, you can match the towel racks and faucets together. You can also match the window trip and the door walls. Another thing, if you want buyers to get interested in your home, you should have matching flooring throughout the main floor of the house.


Rehabbing a house requires a lot of patience and finances. This is because it takes a lot of the flippers time and money to be completed. If you are a lazy person you cannot succeed with the house rehabbing process. It is a great investment which you won’t regret later in life. The process takes about 2 to 4 months to be completed.

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 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
