Flipping Houses Tips

Image found at primevaluerealty.com/distressed-properties.html.
 
Today I have some information about flipping houses.  This article includes tips and tricks for young investors who are looking into buying real estate with the intention of fixing and flipping it.  Though it takes some money to do, flipping properties is a time-tested way for investors to build operating capital to fund longer-term investing options or to make a decent living.

Flipping properties has become even more popular in today's down market.  The low prices of properties and the number of distressed foreclosures on the market have given an excellent opportunity for young investors and new investors to jump into the market and begin for a fraction of the price that a better market may allow for.

Find the article HERE.

I am trying to come up with my own content for this blog, as I have many opinions on investment vehicles and related material - I just need time to type it out.  I look forward to suggestions for content or comments about what I am finding so that I can make this blog appeal to a wider audience.

  5. I find it's best to try to flip the houses when you left with your knees, not your back. Otherwise the high roof pitches can whomp ya on the head, and that's awful.
