The BRRRR method just got served a devastating blow. With new financing rules and regulations, the “Buy, Rehab, Rent, Refinance, Repeat” strategy could be coming to a close for rookie real estate investors. This is a sensitive subject for most investing experts, as the BRRRR method was almost foolproof from 2010 to 2020. ANYBODY could find a house needing renovations, make some needed repairs, and turn it into a cash cow by refinancing out of their original loan.
But now, the tide has started to turn, cash flow has been erased thanks to high mortgage rates, and finding a home for sale isn’t as easy as it always was. For investors who relied on the BRRRR method, this could be seen as the end of a wildly profitable era. But for expert investors like David Greene, Henry Washington, and Rob Abasolo this is just the beginning of a new type of BRRRR that could pay off handsomely but has much more lethal side effects.
In this episode, we’ll get into exactly what the BRRRR strategy is, how investors use it to recycle their down payments, and what changes have caused it to go out of style. Our expert hosts will also describe what you MUST do to make your BRRRR investment work in 2023 and why simply buying a fixer-upper is NOT a worthwhile strategy. So stick around if you don’t want to get burnt on your next BRRRR!
