Reno For Renting, Flipping, And More!! Part 2 Of Our Popular Series!!

Renovating for Renting, Flipping, and more! How to maximize your money and reduce your headaches.  Join us on April 19th, to learn about renovating for your investment property from Alcina Sung, the Head of Volition Design and Construction.

It’s going to be packed full of great information, so if you’re ever planning to do a renovation on any of your properties, this is not one that you will want to miss!


Renovations are a critical element to understand as an investor, especially when looking at properties in Toronto. It is an essential skill to have in order to execute on Buy & Holds (in order to increase rents and increase cashflow and force appreciation), Buy-Reno-Rent-Refi (BRRR), as well as the ubiquitous Fix & Flip.

Part 1 (Nov 2017) of this presentation was very well received. Alcina focussed on the “Design” aspects of a renovation…. how to design your place to look like the pretty pictures you see on HGTV, Home & Garden, and Houzzz… but more importantly, how to do it in a very cost-conscientious way (i.e. with an INVESTOR mindset!).

Part 2 gets into the details of the construction phase. During this session, you’ll earn:

– What makes a great contractor? How to spot a bad contractor?
– What are best practices when working with a contractor?
– What is considered a Cosmetic renovation vs Permitted renovation?
– How much do I need for contingencies (time and money)?
– What are some “hidden cost” and unknowns to look out for?
– What are typical phases of the construction process?
– Roughly how long should renovations take?
– Roughly how much should renovations cost?
– What should a renovation contract look like?
– How should a reno differ if it’s for an investment property?
– Time is money!! So how to decrease downtime as you near the end of the renovation and how to line up subsequent activities (staging, photography, when to begin showings for potential tenants, etc.)?
How much force appreciation lift should I be expecting?
