How Does A Flipper Like Their Eggs.....................................................The Lazy Flipper's Fridge 

Have you heard of this one ?;

How does a flipper like his fried eggs.....................I don't know, but you can bet they're not sunny side up!

And - What does a flpper keep in his fridge?;

Not much, right?

And there's a few more paint touchups tp be done. (Paint roller and brush are wrapped in a plastic bags and put in the fridge to keep them from drying between coats of paint - so you don't have to wash and clean them each time.)

it's powered, that looks normal, but nobody uses it. There's no food in it.

And it rocks back and forth. When I look under I can see it's up on blocks, kind of like a wrecked car. 

This fridge is a total prop. It's staging. It has a stainless steel exterior finish. That's why it's there.

 

So this property is a flip. Bought to fix up the finishes and sell for quick profit.

If you care about the difference between a renovated property or a flip (and for the money you should) then you need an inspection by an experienced professional.

There may not always be a used paint roller in the fridge to tell you.

Hi Robert,

GEEZ, nothing like hiding what your up to is there? Seems the seller would have taken all signs of them ever being there. But we can tell if they had been were pro's.

Have a great day in Montreal my freind.

Best, Clint McKie

Glad you colud appreciate it Renee. The flippers are likely more professional in your area. (or more subtle.)

No disrespect Bob, but a Stager would never put something like that fridge in a home! lol

I have wrapped my paint rollers in plastic to use the next day, but I've never put them in the fridge... =D

No disrespect implied. I certainly wouldn't expect a stager to use a faulty appliance even just for appearance. This state of presentation mirrored the ' Reno' work done. All just a tough under par.
