Tarek and Christina get a lead on a bank-owned (REO) property that is a small 1920's craftsman bungalow in Whittier, CA. They are able to tour the house prior to making an offer, and discover it needs a complete overhaul. It may not be worth flipping. But there is a studio in the back that doesn't seem to be included in the square footage on the listing.

They check with the city and discover that it is in fact permitted. And the bank accepts their all cash offer of $182,000. They want to flip this house in 30 days so work begins right away. On Day 1 they discover that the lead paint on the house must be dealt with according to EPA standards at an unexpected cost of 12 thousand dollars!

7 :01x07 - Keeping Up With The Joneses

May/07/2013
Tarek and Christina follow up on a large family home in Fullerton, CA that is listed for $389,000. They tour the house with their contractor and discover that it will need extensive rehab. Not only will the interior need a full remodel, but the whole roof will also need to be replaced, multiple balconies will need to rebuilt from scratch, and the crumbling driveway needs to be entirely re-poured. However, it might be worth it because Tarek thinks a house this nice, in this area, will sell over $600,000, giving them potentially huge profit margins. But, the 1960's floor plan could seriously hinder its sale price. So Tarek and Christina check out a neighboring home with the identical floor plan that has been recently updated. They like it so much that they decide to replicate the house by opening up their kitchen and master bathroom walls. If they can modernize this mid-century home, it will appeal to a higher end buyer, but the scale of this remodel is pricey. So they cannot afford any unforeseen delays especially because they have to cover $600 a month in HOA fees themselves, until they can finish the rehab and sell the house. Will keeping up with the Joneses make them Flip or Flop?

So, if they lose on this house, it will affect the whole family. Banking on the home's beautiful view, Tarek and Christina spend 20 thousand of their $50,000 rehab budget on landscaping, however, after they notice a crack in the foundation slab of the house, they realize that the home might be sinking down the hill along with their profits!

After some intensive research on comps, Tarek and Christina find a promising 5 bedroom, 3 bath, house to flip in a family neighborhood of Bellflower, CA. When they tour the home with their contractor, Izzy, Tarek and Christina are thrilled to find a newly renovated kitchen and a dining room that just needs a coat of paint, however, their hopes, that the rest of the house will also be in turn-key condition, are quickly dashed when they discover that the upstairs master bathroom is covered in floor to ceiling mold. Considering the kitchen is in such good condition, Tarek and Christina decide that dealing with the mold remediation shouldn't ruin their remodel budget, and negotiate with the bank to secure the house for $385,000. But after they hire a mold inspector to run some tests, they discover they have toxic mold on their hands, which, not only is more expensive to treat than was expected, but will also take longer to fix. As they open up the walls to deal with the mold, they also find fire damage throughout the attic, and extensive termite damage throughout the house. With further delays and costs, all bets are off, as Tarek and Christina scramble to get this home renovated and on the market. Will cleaning up this moldy mess make them Flip or Flop?

10 :01x10 - Facelift Flip

May/14/2013
Tarek and Christina check out a short sale that's listed at $214,900, discounted a full 50% from the $430K currently owed on the house! Short sales can be great opportunities for house flippers because banks would rather take a loss on a house than foreclosing and having to sell it themselves. This house is a large 4 bedroom with a pool that appears to just need a facelift, and with comps in the area between $230,000 and $280,000, Tarek and Christina make an offer, which is accepted, for $200,000. They get a $30,000 bid from their contractor to update the kitchen, bathrooms, master closet and the pool, bringing them right to the lower end of their comps. But when they realize a back addition is unpermitted, the added costs may erase their profits, potentially leaving the facelift they planned on giving the house covered with red ink!

It's always nerve wracking to buy a house sight-unseen, but while walking through the house with their contractor, Dan Messina, it seems to be mostly cosmetic and can be done for 30K in 30 days. But after the work begins they find rotted wood, which leads to extensive termite damage. Will these termites destroy their budget to update the house? Will they be able to make the upgrades that will attract buyers? Or will they be forced to market this Inland Empire Cosmetic Nightmare as is.
