Real Estate flipping. Wow just where do I start? Thirty years of designing and flipping brings me so many great stories to tell. I like to think of flipping as organized chaos at its best. Murphy’s law and I have become incredible buddies over the years…what a great guy that Murphy was…NOPE!
So, when you do something like real estate flipping for a long period of time, you have what I consider a huge barrel of great stories to entertain with. When I’m out speaking in public or meeting people for the first time, I’m often asked what were some of the craziest flips I’ve even done? So it made me think just which ones they were and so I complied a list of the 10 best (Craziest) and decided I’d make it a learning lesson for anyone checking out my blog.
While searching my list of past projects, I had to first decide what “crazy” meant to most bloggers, because what was crazy to me could be shear “nutso” to others. Because flipping can be full of daily madness especially when you run 3-5 projects at one point in time. The mystery of a flip is in its hidden profit and what you cant foresee to reach that illusive financial goal. Most call the goal capturing sweat equity. I call it blood, sweat, tears…and LOTS OF MONEY!
But So much in a run down home is completely undetectable which actually makes the process even more intriguing. so the list I made consists of what could not be seen on each of the target flips in this list. I’ve broken them down in the 10 next blogs and plan on getting them out one per day. So sit back and enjoy the ride…its gets a little bumpy, but your bound to learn from my craziness!
So here it goes, my list of the 10 craziest flips numbered from crazy (#10) to just plain nuts (#1)
