Flipping Investment Property in Cork

Flipping property in Cork


Flipping property is when we advise clients to buy a Cork property below market value, renovate it and then make a profit by selling it at a higher price, all within a few months, and often before the Cork market has a time to react to the renovation.


The Flipping Strategy in Cork


Investment property flipping in Cork is a simple strategy. You find a property that is in need of renovation from our list and purchase it for a low price. These type of Cork real estate investments are sometimes referred to by professionals as ‘distressed’ Cork real estate.


What is distressed Cork property:


  • Cork property in need of renovation
  • Cork real estate with a change of purpose and use
  • Oversold Cork property
  • Bank repossessions in Cork

Put simply, long term investors in Cork purchase the property, renovate it and make it a lot more attractive to potential buyers.


Calculate profit that you make from Cork investment property flipping:


Final Selling Price less Cost of Purchase less Costs = Profit

Here is an example:

Cork property purchase price: $220,000

Renovation costs: $20,000

Other costs: $25,000

Property sale price: $400,000

Profit: $135,000


Experienced property developers in Cork use a minimum profit value of 22% when looking at potential Cork projects.


The reason for this is because there are lots that can go wrong in Cork property flipping and working on a potential margin of 22% should still leave a good margin of error.
