From the steps of the courthouse to the "oohs" and "aahs" of an open house, five teams of expert flippers bid against each other for abandoned houses sight unseen. It's a high-stakes hour in which three auctions are won, three houses are renovated and then all three houses go on the market for top dollar. Which team took the biggest risk, worked the hardest and overcame the biggest challenges? Find out on "Flip It to Win It". (Source: HGTV)
It's auction day and the teams hustle to scout three houses on the auction block. In desirable downtown Los Gatos, a Victorian 2 bedroom has sparked Todd and Michael's attention thanks to its location and well kept exterior. Rick and Vinny are also intrigued by this property's potential, and think the home seems perfect from the outside. Just north in Santa Clara, Mike and Manly scope out a 3 bedroom house that has them intrigued, but the overgrown landscaping has them worried the inside could be rough. Todd and Michael, lured by the low starting bid, also scout the property hoping it could lead to a big profit.
