About the Author
J Scott is a full-time real estate investor and rehabber currently living in the suburbs of Washington, DC (formerly living and investing in Atlanta, GA). He is originally from the East Coast, and until Spring of 2008, he resided in Silicon Valley (California), where he spent many years in management at several Fortune 500 companies.
In 2008, J and his wife decided to leave the 80-hour work weeks and the constant business travel behind. They quit their corporate jobs, moved back East, started a family and decided to try something new. That something new ended up being real estate, and nine years later, they've built a successful business buying, rehabbing and reselling single family homes.
Since 2008, J and his wife have rehabbed over 300 of their own houses for millions of dollars in profits, and have mentored and assisted other investors in rehabbing hundreds more properties. These days, the team has branched out, now flipping houses in different parts of the country and focusing on larger new-construction projects.
J has detailed his real estate adventure on his blog, 123Flip.com, where he discusses all his team's triumphs, failures and results -- including all the nitty-gritty financial details of the business.

One thing I did with my rentals that the books don't suggest is have a Management Company handle the entire process of my Rentals. They handle marketing, Contracts, Tenants and maintenance for 10% of the rental price. On most deals that will cost me about 120 dollars per month. Not having to deal with Tenants and maintenance is worth the price to me. The profit margin in my area is around 20 percent. If it is a break even deal I will hold until I get enough equity from their payments and then when the lease is up I will clean it up and sale. It can be the difference in losing money and making a little off of a bad deal.
