I was able to make enough money from that flip that it gave me the ability to buy many more homes and flip them for profit as well.
When you flip houses for a living, you are bound to deal with houses that are in terrible shape. Every once in awhile however, some homes come around that really end up surprising you and aren’t nearly as big of a hassle to get back into working order. I can still remember one of the first homes that I flipped ended up being one of the rarer homes that I had ever had the chance to work with. The home that I had purchased was a decent sized farmhouse that had been abandoned in the 90’s. Despite the amount of time that it had been vacant it was in amazing shape. Most of the homes left unoccupied this long have been ransacked and are filled with mice and other nasty vermin. The air conditioning unit still worked well, and the old farmhouse even had radiant heated flooring. After having a certified HVAC repair tech come out to make sure no pests were lingering in the air ducts and putting on some fresh coats of paint, I was able to put the home back on the market. I was able to make enough money from that flip that it gave me the ability to buy many more homes and flip them for profit as well. It sure isn’t as easy as simple of a process most of the time though. In fact, ever since that flip I haven’t had an easy experience with a home. Flipping homes for a living is almost never easy, but that’s what keeps it fun and exciting for me.
