The Flipping Strategy in Huambo


Investment property flipping in Huambo 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 Huambo real estate investments are sometimes referred to by professionals as ‘distressed’ Huambo real estate.


What is distressed Huambo property:


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

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


Calculate profit that you make from Huambo investment property flipping:


Final Selling Price less Cost of Purchase less Costs = Profit

Here is an example:

Huambo 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 Huambo use a minimum profit value of 22% when looking at potential Huambo projects.


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