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.

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.

Recording Studio Rehab

For their next rental property investment, real estate agent Drew Levin and contractor Danny Perkins have a budget of $250,000 and a couple of weird properties to consider. The first place is a duplex that's listed for $145,000. Neither of the units smell good, and every single room needs attention. But with a renovation investment of $55,000, they could eventually get $2,400 a month in rent. The second place is a 3,000 square foot Victorian home that had been previously used as a recording studio. At $190,000, it's priced higher than the first. But once they spend $40,000 on renovations, they could pull in $3,000 a month in rent.

Danny and Drew are hopeful that their home sweet rental approach will pay off in the end.

Up and Coming Neighborhood

Real estate agent Drew Levin and contractor Danny Perkins have up to $250,000 to spend on their next rental property…and their choices are a rough looking house in a great location or a great looking house in a rough location. The first place is a four-bedroom in the suburbs, listed for $140,000. It's a proven rental market, but the whole place needs a face-lift and it wouldn't work for a family without a $20,000 kitchen addition. The next place is a five-bedroom duplex just a block away from a really hot neighborhood. It's more expensive than the first, but the lower unit is rentable as-is and the upper unit has loads of potential.

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.

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.

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.

Adding An Attic Bathroom

They check out the $245,000 duplex first. Next, they look at the house, which is priced lower, at $205,000. It's right in the heart of the city, but there's only one bathroom and the bedrooms aren't great.
