As an investor we generally stage all properties and include all kitchen appliances down to the toaster, blender & flour & sugar bowls (cost for stainless about 2200.00). Lately depending on our motivation we even include a new washer and dryer (cost for this item 700-900). In the living room we add a furniture package with includes sofa, loveseat, 2 end tables, coffee table and 2 lamps. The furniture is not included in the deal but everything is negotiable (our cost on the entire set of living room furniture is about 1100.00 at Nebraska Furniture Mart). We generally price our property in the low to mid-point in the market and our goal is DOM of less than 30 and a net profit of 10-12%. All of this is in the budget from the get go so the money is made on flips when you buy the property â€œrightâ€. We include a lot of the staging items in the sale but we do not go over the top with a bunch of â€œartâ€ or high end items and we never stage bedrooms or other living areas. Lately we have had multi-offers on all of our flips and we usually take the cleanest transaction not necessarily the one which nets us the most capital. Most of our transactions occur at 120-150k on our flips.
