About The Show

Real estate agent Drew Levin and his partner, contractor Danny Perkins, have been friends since college and now run a successful renovation business together.  They strategically buy old or foreclosed homes in desirable locations, but rather than flipping them for a quick profit, they Renovate to Rent.   Using specific design plans, they transform these homes to attract top rental dollar.  Even though they’re young, they already own and manage over 70 homes, and the number just keeps growing.

Drew Takes Over

Real estate agent Drew Levin and contractor Danny Perkins have $230,000 to spend on a new rental property. They tour a four-bedroom house that's listed at $185,000 and a duplex for $200,000. Both need about $15,000 in renovations. The repairs in the house are straightforward, but the duplex has an upper unit with a funky layout that Danny finds challenging. Plus, he just had surgery on a torn Achilles tendon and will have to rely on Drew to do most of the renovations. Drew prefers the duplex and promises to help as much as possible to make this one work. He teams up with licensed contractor Andy Corbin to realize Danny's plan of a better layout in the one-bedroom apartment. They update the kitchen a space-spaving island that features hidden fridge and freezer drawers, and turn an un-used area under the pitched roof into a breakfast nook with a custom built banquette seating. Without having to touch the lower unit, they get it rented for $1,500 per month, and the upper unit goes for $1,300 per month thanks to the guys' planning and hard work.

Going Home Again

Real estate agent Drew Levin and contractor Danny Perkins are looking to spend $400,000 on a new rental property…one of their biggest budgets yet. Drew surprises Danny with the first place - the house where they were roommates ten years ago. It's a great six-bedroom duplex, but the lower unit kitchen needs help, and the outdoor deck is falling apart. However, the yard is huge, and the upper unit is already rented for $2,800 per month. Next, they look at a three-bedroom place in Linden Hills, a desirable neighborhood that the guys have been trying to break into for years. In order for this one to work, it needs an $85,000 renovation that includes a kitchen extension and master suite addition. They ultimately decide against the risk of major construction, and buy the Green Monster duplex for $315,000. Danny's Achilles injury has healed, and he gets off crutches just in time to update the kitchen with a better layout, granite countertops, a subway tile backsplash, and a five-foot island with barstool seating. Outside, they build a new cedar deck, complete with a custom built bags set – the same lawn game that the guys used to play when they lived here. Drew takes a risk by bringing in potential renters before construction is finished, but it pays off when they decide to rent the lower unit for $1,500 per month.

Finishing a Flip

Real estate agent Drew Levin and contractor Danny Perkins are looking to buy their next rental house just outside the city, where there is a good market for large family-friendly properties. But a master suite is a must-have for this search. First, they check out a six-bedroom house, listed at $245,000. It's huge, but all of the bedrooms have outdated panel walls, and none of them work as a master until they hit the second floor, where one of the bedrooms has been turned into an unpermitted kitchen. Danny sees potential to knock down a couple walls and turn the entire floor into a master suite. Next, they look at a hundred year old house that's listed at $200,000. It's cheaper than the first, but doesn't have as many bedrooms. Also, the living room and dining room have been walled off to use as extra bedrooms by an owner/landlord that was obviously in trouble. But when the guys find that the kitchen and bathrooms have been newly updated, it's clear that another owner had already come in, tried to turn this place around and couldn't finish. This house has great original woodwork and decent bedrooms, but no real master. So when Drew and Danny get to the attic, they are excited to find a large space with lots of potential. They can increase the total number of bedrooms in this house, so the guys are sold. But first, they have to make sure that the updated kitchen and bathrooms have been permitted by the city. Once that's out of the way, they transform the attic into a master bedroom with corner closets, a reading nook, and two nightstands inset just under the pitched roof. Danny also builds a custom slatted bed frame and headboard, so tenants won't have to carry a bed up to the attic. Downstairs, the living room and dining room are opened up and tied together with a coffered ceiling and a salvaged antique archway that almost perfectly matches the home's original wood details. In the end, the projects come in $500 under budget, and the guys are able to rent the house for $250 over their original estimate.

Backyard Blowout

Real estate agent Drew Levin and contractor Danny Perkins have up to $250,000 to spend on their next rental property…and Drew's got two places that are similar, but a little different. The first place is a four-bedroom house in the suburbs that's listed for $220,000. There is carpet everywhere that needs to be replaced with hardwood floors, and the third bathroom is in the garage. The next place is also a four-bedroom house listed for just five grand more than the first, at $225,000. And it's right in the heart of the city. Both properties need about thirty grand in renovations, and would get about $2,750 per month in rent.
