So You Want to Flip Houses…

advice from a house flipper

A common theme to most of the emails I receive is that the sender is in search of some practical advice for getting started in the flipping business.

Some want to dip their toe into the flipping waters part-time, others are ready to jump in completely, and the majority aren’t quite sure how to proceed.  Here’s a recent example of one of those queries:

Interior decorating and house remodeling has been a passion of mine for the
last 5 years or so. I currently am an accountant for a large corporate
company. I have no intentions of quitting my job, currently. I would like
to flip houses (do what I love) and make money doing it. To me, that just
seems like pure heaven. In the last 2 weeks, I have started researching the
flipping business. I want to make sure I have every aspect nailed down
before jumping in. I was hoping that you could offer some advice or point
me in the right direction of how to begin. It’s always nice to speak to
someone with experience and who has been successful. Thanks so much for
your time!  ~ Krista

I love emails like this!  However, it’s pretty time-consuming to respond to each one – even though I would love to I just don’t have the free time these days (this post pretty much sums up why).  So, I thought it would be a great idea to put all of my get-into-flipping tips in one spot – and any new posts will be added here over time.  Sound good?

Here we go!

    Do you have a question about flipping houses that isn’t answered here?  Let me know and I might write a post about it!

So Much to Say


Right now I have SO much to fill you in on that it’s hard to find a good place to start.

I’ll give you the short version first, then I’ll fill you in on all the details later.  Here we go!

- We bought 3 houses in June, and only one of them has a gold, glittery popcorn ceiling.  I know, so disappointing.

- Our 8th flip went on the market the day after she got here.  (Sidenote – we headed to the hospital an hour and a half after I wrapped up with the photographer at the flip!)

- My babies love each other. And I promise we put clothes on them sometimes.

- We’re gearing up to buy another flip in August, if all goes well.


More later!

She’s Here!

She's Here!

We’ve added another little girl to our family, and we officially feel like the luckiest people on the planet.

She's Here!

She made her debut around 10pm on Tuesday night and she’s been awesome ever since!

She's Here!

Her big sister is quite interested in this “baby! baby!” that’s been hanging around.  I’m not quite sure she understands that the baby is here for the long haul, but I think she’ll get used to it.  :)

She's Here!

We’re getting in the swing of our new routine, and we’re loving being a family of four.  Now, does anyone have any tips for getting some sleep at night?  :)
