Flipping Properties

By Bob Schwartz, CRS, GRI 2005 All rights reserved.

If you want to make the most of your profits off of a property, then the way to do it is to flip properties. Flipping properties is a term that is commonly used in real estate. It is where someone will buy a property, put in some small changes, and sell off the property for more profit. If you want to invest a little and make a lot, then this is a really good way to get into the real estate business.

Usually, you will begin flipping a property by finding a home that is under-priced for the current real estate market. These are usually called 'fixer uppers' and are available on the market all of the time. Any type of foreclosure, home at an auction, or home that has been neglected can be bought for a reduced price. Flipping properties will most likely be tried by dealers or retailers, but it is possible for anyone to take part in the process of flipping properties.

After you have found a home that needs some mending, you will buy it like you would any other home. Normally, you will be liable for going through the mortgage process and will sign a deed of trust for the property. When you do this, you will want to ensure that you do it as a business instead of an individual. As soon as the paper work is done, you can move into the home, make some modifications, and put it back on the market for a higher price.

Renovating and reselling is the chief strategy behind flipping properties. If you want to stay ahead in the market and begin to profit, then understanding the basics of this and how to work as a business with real estate is one of the potential ways to make a living. There are several people who have worked with real estate and flipping properties, and who have had the ability to make a significant amount of money off of their investments.
