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.

Disco Era Demo

Real estate agent Drew Levin and contractor Danny Perkins search for a single-family home to add to their roster of rental properties. With $350,000 to invest, they tour a three bed/two bath house for $305,000 that needs at least $25,000 in bathroom and kitchen remodels. Next, they look at a place with four bedrooms and two baths - it's priced at only $220,000 but needs all new wiring and an exterminator. Finally, they tour another three bed/two bath home on a half-acre lot with views of downtown Minneapolis. It's in a prime location, but looks straight out of the seventies. And at $340,000, there's not a lot of room to make improvements. They ultimately decide to purchase the most expensive place because of it's potential for premium rental income.

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.

University Upgrade

Real estate agent Drew Levin and contractor Danny Perkins are looking in one of the most competitive rental markets in Minneapolis - student housing. The over-supply of rentals near the University of Minnesota makes it hard to get top-dollar on a place, so the guys need to spend their $300,000 budget on a place with lots of potential for renovation.

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.

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.

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.
