The 2022 housing market was a tricky one. At the start of the year, houses were selling like hotcakes with bids going over asking price on almost every purchase. Now a metaphorical tumbleweed is moving across the real estate market as home sales shrink and sellers get desperate. If you’re a house flipper like Leka Devatha, this is not a pretty sight, but it’s one that can still help you build wealth in the long run.
Even though everything didn’t go right in 2022, Leka was still able to end the year with a HUGE house flip commission, a fully renovated office building, and a twelve-unit apartment that is already filling up fast. She walks through exactly what she did to pivot with the moving market and the exact steps she took to ensure that she would still turn a profit when the year was finally over. Think that there are no deals to be done in this crazy housing market? Think again!
