Is Flipping Houses for You?


There are a wide variety of ways to invest in real estate;

To be successful in real estate investing, it’s critical that you identify what skills you have and your tolerance for risk.

Flipping homes is one of these ways, but not every investor is prepared for what house flipping involves. Understanding the model can help you determine if this is the right investment strategy for you. Investors can make great profits by both flipping properties.

First question is what kind of income are you seeking, active or passive? Actively buying, fixing and flipping properties is quick cash that requires careful timing and effort. Rental properties on the other hand offer passive long-term income which accumulates over time.

The second consideration is risk. Flipping is really speculation. When buying a flipper, one must gauge the cost of refurbishment, remodeling and the cost of the holding time into the price valuation, then carefully market the home and realize the profit. Any number of variances can occur which could cause the value to drop and profits to reduce or even disappear, such as a delay in remodeling or a slow real estate market. Having ready cash to cover the unexpected is critical to success. Flipping houses is one way to invest in real estate.

For those who are able to plan for the unexpected, this quick turn-around model might be a great tool for wealth building. Understanding your market, resources and risk tolerance is the first step in deciding if flipping is right for you.
