Tip #1 On some of my rehabs this tip alone has saved me $6,000 or 20%
If you go onto ebay you can buy 10% or 20% off coupons at Home Depot, Lowes, Etc.
Buy a stack of them if your rehabbing then whenever you go in to purchase something use em.
In my area other businesses will always except competitor coupons so I use them everywhere.
I can remember buying $8,000 in carpeting and my little Ebay coupon saved me $1,600. On top of the incredible deal that I already negotiated.
Hope this saves some of you some money!
Tip #2 I’m sure many of you landlords have seen the 5.00 gallons of paint or the 5 gallon buckets of discount paint at home depot or lowes…
The problem is that you end up with 20 different color rooms that you can never again match the color on…
A great way to get around this problem and still get fantastic discount paint is to collect as many discount paints as you can then combine them into one big vat of paint…Making for 1 color.
One landlord (He’s got 480 Units) that I work with routinely does this in 50 Gallon drums and it saves him an arm and a leg on quality paint.
That’s it. A penny saved is a penny earned
