    I am living in an area where price per square foot is less than $25 per sq ft. Im trying to figure out if some of these are worth flipping. I want to flip, not only to become financially secure but to make things better in our city. For example…..I know where to get a 5br 3 bath house for 10k but it needs work. Where do you draw the line on what is too much to be worth fixing?

    Anybody have tips/resources on calculating the cost to build a new property in any given area? I figure getting land + permit costs is easy enough, should you just flat out talk to a contractor about the actual home afterwards?

    How do you find out the replacement cost ans cost to build ?
    And how did you come up with $300K

    I still believe my local area is 1-2 years away from the high. Sadly, as a buy and hold investor, my market is way overpriced this far out from the high.

    This is Exactly what I needed to know. Perfect example.

    Wouldn't cost to build be with newer wood and materials and thus be better than old and used?

    how can you use cost per sq foot in flipping houses to you benefit?

    Great job Phil thank you so much

    Phil, Is the price per square foot calculated into the intrinsic value?

    Phil, "Are we in a real estate bubble" is one of your best videos. It is full of deep and practical market wisdom. I have watched it a number of times.

    Thank you..

    Wow!!! Such a helpful video! I can't believe I have never thought about "market timing" like this before. I'm sure values are over priced in my Waco TX market, but we still are slightly below this intrinsic value price…this idea is so great to think about. Thank you Phil!!

    Thanks Phil. I do stocks and that comparison was enlightening. Wow, so simple.

    An EDUCATED and WELL-TRAINED investor should be able to make money at any market condition… That predicates on how well the investor can read market trends and the "tide" of how/where the market is moving.

  15. Derek Sevcik

    Where'd the 300k come from?

    Noone Explains It Better Than Phil, Glod Bless You Brother 🙂

    What happens if we are at the top of a bubble, a massive one, which means that at the bottom there will be plenty of supply and no demand?
