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.

Dining Room Do-Over

Real estate agent Drew Levin and contractor Danny Perkins check out up and coming neighborhoods with $200,000 to spend on a new rental property. They tour two homes – both have three bedrooms and one bathroom, and both are listed at $185,000. The first one has an open floor plan and a large dining room with great woodwork, but the bathroom needs a remodel. The second place has a completely updated bathroom and three newly renovated bedrooms. The living room is tiny, but they decide to purchase this one because the kitchen is so large that they can use the formal dining room as a fourth bedroom…and increase the return on their investment.

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 It's huge, but all of the bedrooms have outdated panel walls, and none of them work as a master until they hit the second floor, where one of the bedrooms has been turned into an unpermitted kitchen.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.

Wow Factor

Real estate agent Drew Levin and contractor Danny Perkins started their rental property business in 2007 when the real estate market was on a downturn. Now that it's recovered, the guys have to re-invent themselves if they want their properties to get noticed and stay rented. This time, they have $340,000 to invest and three properties to consider – which is good, because it gives them a better chance to find a place with the potential to really wow tenants.

Construction Obstructions

Real estate agent Drew Levin and contractor Danny Perkins have up to $400,000 to spend on their next rental property…and three varying properties to consider. First, they stop at a seven-bedroom house that's listed for $360,000. It's been divided into four units, but is only permitted for three units. The next place is a four-bedroom house for $180,000. It's in a great location and has a spacious basement living area, but every room needs an update. The third house has three bedrooms and is listed at just $110,000. It's priced low, but there's paneling everywhere and only one bathroom.

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.

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.
