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.
