Pulling permits is one of the most important aspects to rehabbing. It is one thing to stay on a tight budget, but cutting corners will end up costing you more money than you save. Reputation is everything when completing and selling your rehab properties. We have a MD-REIA Mentor Student deal in Hollywood Florida that makes the perfect example for this episode. The property needs a full rehab which means there are several permits that are needed. In this episode Ryan points out its not only important to use the right contractor who knows what permits to pull, but one that also understands the permit process. Understanding the permit process will help ensure the success of your rehab. Hollywood is a city that has a back log of inspections needed to approve permits. There are always some cities more difficult than others. So the bottom line is you need to have a contractor that understands the process and how long it will take to get your permits approved.
