Here are some general remodeling tips if you want to maximize the profit in house rehabbing:

Kitchen and Bathrooms. Redo them from top to bottom. If you are not sure what materials to use, look at homes that sold for top dollar per square foot in the area and copy them.

Flooring. In most flips, use laminate hardwood flooring in the primary living areas and carpet in the bedrooms. Laminate hardwood flooring is difficult to tell apart from real hard wood. It is not only much more durable, and scratch resistant; it is also less expensive.

Paint. Paint every room in the home. If the walls have a lot of minor flaws in them, use flat paint. Otherwise, use an eggshell finish. And always use earth-tones.

Landscaping.  It is amazing what rocks, trees, and shrubs can do to increase the perceived value of a property. A good rule of thumb is to budget 1% to 2% of the final expected sale price of your home for landscaping. Plant a couple flats of fresh flowers the day before putting the house on the market. This simple, inexpensive final step will drastically increase your overall profit.

Roof. If the home needs a new roof, replace it. But factor this into your costs before you purchase the home.

HVAC. Make sure the home has a working heating and cooling system. Air conditioning is a must in areas with warm climates like Florida and Texas.

Garage. Other than paint, do not spend much money here.

Back Patio. This is an often overlooked but important area. A simple $1,500 deck with two chairs, a small table in between them, and a couple wine glasses sitting on the table paints an awesome picture in the head of the potential buyer.
