How to Fix and Flip Real Estate Investment Properties

New fix and flipI have flipped houses since 2001 and have flipped over 100 homes in my career. I love flipping houses because of the money you can make and every flip is different. There are a lot of risks involved in flipping and it is not an easy profession to start in. I still lose money on flips on occasion and the costs always seem to be more than I expect and the time frames longer than I plan for. Below you will see a couple videos of a flip before and after the rehab.
