Going Rogue with Rehab!
Property Rehabbing Done Right....

maryYour Instructor; Mary Morrongiello

Regardless of whether you are a rental landlord or in the Buy/Sell property business; every one involved in rehabbing houses makes a few mistakes. Sometimes those mistakes are pretty BIG mistakes and can leave you running for the courthouse, heading back to your lender or scrambling for more money, or even heading to the hospital! Whether you're just starting out or seasoned this Full Day class will enlighten you about how to avoid major mistakes that can leave you scrambling. Plans, Permits, Roofs, Foundations, Electric, Plumbing, Flooring, Furnaces, Windows, Painting, Landscaping, Sewers, Septic systems, Design choices, Sources, Materials and Labor, and Pest and Home Inspections, etc. can be just a few of the many ongoing tasks involved in a property renovation project.

About Your Instructor:

Having completed 100+ flip renovations and booked with projects through the end of 2014 Mary began flipping in California in 1998 after moving to the Wine Country from Tampa Bay, FL. She went BROKE in the market decline of 2007 when she got stuck with a Million Dollar + wine country rehab. It has taken her 6+ years to recover but she gets up every day and moves forward; As the Life of a Flipper can be filled with “rags to riches” cycles. She enjoys teaching both the new and experienced property renovator not only What to do or consider doing but also what NOT to Do!
