You have seen all the excitement on television programs such as Designed to Sell, Property Brothers, and Flipping 101. You think this is easy – I can do that. You gather up funding and get a property and now you are ready to flip your first property. Sweat equity is 100% the way to go. You will save money so you can earn more once you sell the property. On the downside, with no experience flipping properties, you can find yourself with more than you bargained for.
Flipping properties involves money, time, and knowledge. You may have none of these and find yourself needing help. Early on in these stages, as in any other project, having a professional by your side may be your best option. Not to worry. A professional emergency plumber has seen it all. They know the challenges you will face as a beginner flipping your first property. Here are five reasons to partner with an emergency plumber to flip properties in Timberlane, LA.
Less Hassle on Knowing Which Tools to Use
If you are experienced in flipping properties in Timberland, LA, you may have all the tools you need to flip a property and work its plumbing needs. However, there are so many tools, some can be hard to find or expensive that you will need. From the typical wrench, hammer, and pliers to borescopes and plumbers’ torches, there are tons of tools and equipment involved in fixing plumbing issues.
In working on plumbing issues, how do you know which tools to use and where do you go about getting them from? You do not want to use the wrong tool on a pipe and damage it somehow. Having an emergency plumber in Timberland LA partnered with you takes all the guesswork away.
Avoid DIY Going Wrong
Flipping properties can be expensive. It is natural to want to cut corners to avoid expensive repairs. Most DIY projects to flip a property include replacing toilets and/or the hardware, installing new kitchen and bathroom sinks, or replacing sink pipework. However, what if there are other issues included?
- When you pull up a toilet, could there be a rotted pipe?
- Do you see water damage in the ceiling of the kitchen?
- Is the water tank the right size for the property?
- Is the new kitchen plumbing tied into corroded pipes?
- Are you missing a pressure vacuum breaker?
- Are tiled shower floors best for this bathroom?
Yes, it is possible to save money by fixing things yourself when flipping a property. However, if you do something wrong, you could cost yourself hundreds or thousands of dollars of repair down the line. Some work you do could cause additional issues such as the need to re-pipe or causing a slow undetected leak.
As a beginning property flipper, you are already inexperienced with plumbing repair and even more unfamiliar with the actual property to flip. You should have a deadline to complete this flip and do not want to run into last-minute issues pushing you past this deadline. Let a professional emergency plumber work with you to guide you along the way.
Have all the Right Permits the First Time
Permits can be time-consuming to get and costly as well. Depending on the scope of the project, there could be various permits you need, outside of plumbing issues. Let the professionals get the right permits for you to start this work on your flip.
If you decide to skip getting the right permits initially, this could prevent other professionals from getting started with necessary work, slowing your flip deadline. Also, some work without the right permits is a red flag for property buyers and real estate agents. They may question themselves if they can rely on the work you have done on the property. This can send buyers away or lower the value of the property.
Let the Professionals Be the Judge of That
Whomever you bought the Timberlane, LA property from may have told you that everything is up to code. They may have told you the water heater is good, and all the pipes are fine. Being new to flipping properties, things may appear to be perfect to the untrained eye. However, a professional emergency plumber will know better.
Plumbers Know the Best Minor Upgrades
If you do not have a lot of money to invest in flipping your Timberlane, LA property, an emergency plumber may have the best answers. While replacing a typical water heater with a new, tankless water heater is efficient, saves space, and looks better, it is costly. So, if you do not have the money to do so, something as simple as replacing a rod to expand the current water heater’s lifetime could be what you need. An emergency plumber will be the one to help bring simplicity and affordable options to you.
