When buying a flip house beware! Many flippers do a good job remodeling and updating a house but there are many exceptions. Some flippers buy new kitchen appliances, paint, and possibly put down new flooring and list the home. Many times the work is done by someone who watches HGTV or cruises the internet and decide they are qualified to do the work. Typically, these jobs turn out to less than professional.
Also, many flippers focus on what appeals to buyers such as new appliances and granite counter tops with no regard to the important unseen items. All home renovations and new builds should begin with the outside structural concerns.
If you are considering buying a flip house, please hire a home inspector. We would prefer you hire us but please hire someone.
