Topic: How to Accurately Estimate Repairs in Under 15 Minutes With no Experience!

Have you ever walked into a house and seen a repair situation that you had no idea how to fix or what the cost would be? Raise your hand if you’re brand new to rehabbing and thinking… "I would love to flip a house but I don't even know how much it costs to paint a room." C’mon, raise your hand! Everyone's hand should be up. It’s the most common question that we get.

How do I know what the cost of repairs will be?

Most of us are not contractors. Lucky for you, our next speaker has worked on over 1,000 rehabs and will show you how to estimate repairs accurately every time! Most of the time in under 10 minutes.

Did I budget enough for repairs?

Am I making the right repairs? Do I need to repair this? What about permits? Matt is going to answer all of these questions and more as he has worked as a general contractor and rehabber for over 20 years.

Who are the key people I need on my team?

What do you do when your plumber doesn’t show up on the day you have an inspection scheduled, resulting in the whole project being shut down? What if the estimate was $5k but is now $17k? What if the estimate was to change an outlet but the whole fuse box that now needs updating? Having managed over 500 subcontractors over the years, Matt has this figured out!

So, what do I do now?

At our WiscoREIA Green Bay Meeting, Matt Hedstrom, will teach you all the ins and outs of rehabbing, making accurate repair estimates, managing contractors, and following process. The best way to learn is from those who do it best. You won’t want to miss this event!

Matt Hedstrom:
Matt Hedstrom owns and manages multiple businesses between Milwaukee and Chicago. He has created these businesses with a vision to serve and elevate others with core values centered in honesty and integrity. With over 20 years in real estate and contracting experience there isn’t a problem that Matt can’t find a solution for. His unique knowledge, contacts, and experience are all put to work helping him find the best solution for his clients. 

Along with Short Sale Experts LLC (a national short sale negotiating company) Matt runs a successful General Contracting business and is a licensed contractor. He is experienced with rehabbing residential homes for purchase or rent to own, acquisitions and sales of residential and commercial investment property, and managing large scale commercial projects. He ran a very successful residential remodeling company in MN as a licensed contractor as well. Sellfastwithus.com is the new wholesaling company he started that is fully automated and sends out thousands of pieces of direct mail. He is currently working on a lending company that will be launched in 2018. His current focus as Tri-City Properties is building a buy and hold portfolio and has purchased 5 rentals in the last 6 months.

Matt believes education is the foundation of any good business and strives to help others grow their potential. He became a co-owner of WiscoREIA, Wisconsin’s premier Real Estate Investors Association in order to share his love for learning and keys to success with investors throughout Wisconsin.

Matt and his wife of twenty-one years, Lu, have 6 amazing kids ranging in age from 3 to 21. He has a huge heart for mission work and travels around the world leading about 5-6 trips a year building churches and houses. Other hobbies include reading, hunting, kiteboarding and surfing.

Amy Farrow: 
Amy began investing in real estate in 2001.  As an attorney, Amy found the day to day practice of law boring. With the birth of her second child, she wanted to be home for her children and not trapped in an office.  Her most interesting clients were real estate investors, developers and property management companies.  She began visiting their projects and learning about the processes of real estate.  A friend mentioned that he was working on a house that he bought at auction and asked if she would help him.  Next thing Amy knew, she was working on repairing and reselling three more houses.  Amy put her knowledge of foreclosures and the legal process to work and began knocking on doors of people scheduled for foreclosure sale. For the next decade, Amy learned all about the construction of houses and detecting problems.  Amy has built houses, developed land, rehabbed over 50 houses, been a landlord to 25 units, bought and sold with seller financing, raised capital and helped many investors with both business and legal issues.  But it hasn’t been all roses and sunshine. Amy credits some of her best “lessons” to the projects that didn’t work out. There have been “a lot” of lessons along the way. Now Amy hopes to save other investors from the “lessons” by sharing her experiences and advice with other investors and learning from their “lessons”.
