Flipping MH Repos - Posted by loran-nc

We have had a great deal of experience with repos. From a business standpoint, it’s like starting over with a home you have just purchased.

From a tax standpoint, your tax basis in the home is the balance due from your buyer when the home was repossessed. Any net selling price above or below that would be taxable (or deductible if taking a loss).

I just inadvertently flipped my first repo that I had originally intended to owner finance. The return was 89%.(CASH)
Has anyone else had any experience in Repos & what are the
potential pitfalls/benefits?

Dear Loran,
Congrats!!! I know you feel great, success does that to a person. We just did the same thing only in our case we never even closed on it! We wholesale flipped it to an investor who purchased our contract/interest in the MH with land for $3,000.00. A smaller profit but minimal work and no investment!! Best of luck to you!!

Is this a home you repo’ed or one you got from the lender? If you have good title and can sell for cash with that kind of return, go for it! Then go buy two more.
