Do You REALLY Want to Make Money Fixing and Flipping Houses?

You can make a lot of money flipping houses, but before you get caught up in the financial fevor, you need to provide honest answers to some serious questions.

First, are you willing to start spending large portions of your life involved in the acquisition, repair, and then flipping of the properties you buy? Real estate, much more than passive investments like stocks and bonds, is a hands-on experience.

Selecting the Right House to Flip

You've got to look at potential properties, sometimes many of them, before you find the one you're looking for. Besides locating a bargain-priced house, you must know how much it will cost to make the needed repairs.

After finding a profitable house, you will need to pay for the property. Do you have financing arranged?

You have to repair the house, which will involve doing much of it yourself if you want to make the maximum amount of profit. Then you have to sell it, which involves showing the property and dealing with potential buyers.

Next, do you really enjoy the real estate game? That's important, because instead of just buying paper investments from Wall Street, you're going to be embarking on what's essentially a second job when you start buying real estate. If you don't enjoy it, it will eventually be like working a job you hate, but you won't be able to just quit and walk away. Once you've begun the process, you have to complete it or face some potentially disastrous outcomes.

If you're married, are you absolutely certain that your spouse has bought into your real estate investment dreams? This is a crucial question, because if they haven't, flipping homes can be very hard on a relationship. Make sure your communication channels are strong, because there's going to be a lot to talk about during the flipping process--and no matter how well you think the two of you communicate, I can promise that disagreements are going to occur. You can avoid many of those problems by having a serious discussion about the strategy you're about to undertake--BEFORE you begin.

If you answered all of these difficult-but-essential questions with an honest yes, you can safely begin the process of becoming a home flipper. You'll have ups and downs, but there's also great satisfaction in making a profit from a project you had a personal hand in completing. It's certainly not for everyone, but flipping houses can be profitable, and one that's actually enjoyable--if you approach the process in the right spirit.

The best thing about fixing and flipping houses: the satisfaction of taking an ugly doghouse and turning it into a buyer's dream home. Make a difference in your community by saving a house! Learn How to Fix and Flip Houses!
