An Investor/Builder & Project's Best Friend

Captain Permit understands how important the relationship between time and money is for an investor. The average investor burns $200 each day or more to carry a house when you factor in taxes, insurance, utilities, interest, and maintenance. Not to mention market risk. The investor way is to get in, produce a quality product, and get out as fast as possible with a solid ROI. We know that because The Handsome Homebuyer team has flipped over 400 houses across every township on Long Island.


Captain Permit founder Charles Weinraub, AKA The Handsome Homebuyer, has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in carrying costs over the last few years. All due to architects and expeditors false promises, long turn around times, and lack of experience. In the end, enough was enough.


Captain Permit takes the guesswork out of every permit situation. We have designed our systems to take measurements, generate plans, and submit permit applications quickly and accurately. These same systems have helped us achieve industry leading turnaround times which save our investors thousands on every deal while giving them peace of mind.


Captain Permit provides all investors with a complimentary property file review. This is critical in getting a jump on the permit process. During the review, we advise you of possible permit issues that might come up on title and how to get the process started early to minimize holdups. Once the title has been received, we confirm any violations or CO issues. We then instruct you on the fastest and most cost effective way to remedy the issues. Did you know that not all permit issues and violations require additional plans and permits? This is one of the ways we save our clients money.


Captain Permit is here to be a resource to the entire investor community. We can help whether you’re purchasing your first flip, a new construction builder, or a commercial developer. Our staff has the experience and knowledge to ensure a smooth and pleasant transaction.
