Have you ever heard of the 70 percent rule when it comes to flipping houses? If you’re just starting to look into flipping houses, you might have heard of the 70 percent rule. This house flipping tip suggests that an investor should only pay 70 percent of the After Repair Value (ARV) of a property minus any needed repairs. The ARV is the value of the property after it’s been completely repaired. So, once you’ve put all the repairs in, what would the house be worth?
To follow the 70 percent rule, you’d take the amount that the home is worth once you’ve fully repaired it, then multiply that amount by 0.7, then subtract the cost of the repairs that you expect to have to complete. The final calculation is what investors should aim for when paying for a home they intend to flip.
