Fix It & Flip It

We've been fixing and flipping homes for the last 20 years. We started with the home we were living in. Then we took the money we made from that house, and purchased another one; so we could flip that one. Eventually we were able to stay in a home and purchase houses just for the purpose of flipping them. In all our flips we've chosen great craftsmen and professionals to help us get the job done right. We've learned a lot along the way, and now know what jobs we can tackle ourselves, and where we need help, and who to get to help us. With common sense and a plan, you can do this too.
