The Moldy Mess

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?

Keeping Up With The Joneses

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?

Foreclosure Shock

With no foreclosures to flip in Orange County, Tarek and Christina broaden their search to include Los Angeles County and find a house with a view that looks promising. The only problem is that the home is too far away for them to look at it before they go to the auction, so they'll have to bid on the property sight unseen. After placing the winning bid, they meet their contractor at the house for a design walkthrough. But listing photos aren't always what they appear, and the divide between initial perception and present reality has left Tarek and Christina in total foreclosure shock.

A Flip With A View

Tarek and Christina decide to go big and invest in a Real Estate Owned, or banked owned, high-end hilltop home with a gorgeous view. They check their bank statements and realize that even after maxing out their credit cards, the only way they can cover the costs of rehab is to get Tarek's mother to invest by taking out a loan against her home equity. 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! With literally everything, and then some, invested, will this flip with a view have Tarek and his family sitting pretty, or tumbling down the hill towards bankruptcy?

No Risk, No Reward

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a trust sale property in Anaheim, California with an original layout and a dated design. It's in good shape and seems like a mostly cosmetic project with a lot of potential. But when their project manager comes back with a ballooning budget and a laundry list of contingencies, Tarek and Christina wonder if this home has more potential than pitfalls. Still, skilled flippers that they are, Tarek and Christina don't back down from a challenge and know that with no risk, comes no reward.

Tarek and Christina find a listing in Norwalk, California with such an attractive opportunity for profit based on comparable properties that they immediately make an offer on the property, sight unseen. With 48 hours to back out or complete the deal, they call in several contractors to walk the property and present a competitive bid. But as work on this weathered house begins, will Tarek and Christina be able to maintain their projected profit margin or will a bursting budget dig this flip into a money pit?

A Flip With The Enemy

Tarek and Christina are busier than ever with their growing business. As a result, when a fellow flipper contacts them about partnering on a house and he wants to split the time, money, and profit 50/50, they are very interested. But flipping is not a team sport; it's a competitive business and trade secrets are a closely guarded commodity. Can Tarek and Christina play both mentor and business partner? Will they all see eye to eye on budget and design, or could disagreement dissolve friendship and profit into a flip with the enemy?

Custom Craftsman

Tarek and Christina are contacted by their friend and fellow flipper, Jessie Rodriguez, who has purchased a craftsman style home in an historic area of Santa Ana, California.

It will take both skillsets to finish and sell this project for a profit, and Jessie is hoping to strike a partnership. Can Tarek, Christina, and Jessie combine the speed and cost of a flip with the detailed craftsmanship of a renovation to deliver on this custom craftsman flip?

Breaking Up

Flop House Flip

Tarek snoops a small four bedroom foreclosure with a pool in La Mirada as Christina heads to the public foreclosure auction where the house is on the docket. Tarek calls Christina, and from his evaluation of the house, Christina bids and wins the house for $210,000, a smokin' deal! However, as soon as Tarek and Christina open the door, it's clear that this dilapidated house needs a full rehab from tip to tail. It's a disgusting, smelly, confusing mess of rooms, with piles of trash, and graffiti everywhere. Tarek seriously underestimated the home's rehab costs, as initial bids from contractors come in at $50,000 and up. The cost alone for cleaning up this flop house is expensive, but when they begin to discover a bevy of unpermitted construction, Tarek and Christina are forced to demo unpermitted additions and spend money to decrease their square footage! With a skyrocketing budget and a rehab plan, which actually might be de-valuing the house, will this flop house Flip Or Flop?

Spanish Style Salvage

Tarek and Christiana spot an intriguing listing for a curbside auction for a foreclosed 1920's Spanish style house in Santa Ana, CA. This is a unique opportunity to actually walk through the house, before the bidding starts. Although it needs a complete overhaul it has some charming original architecture still in place that will add to its value. They decide to bid on the property and win the house for $208K, a good price considering comps in the area go up to $325K. Their contractor meets them at the house and finds more issues than Tarek and Christina originally spotted in their walk through. There is some structural damage to the foundation and roof leaks that could be massive projects and additional costs. Tarek and Christina worry these structural issues might blow their entire rehab budget. Will this Spanish style salvage be a profitable flip or a regrettable flop?

But with two investors comes two sets of opinions and budgets and schedules suffer the consequences. Have Tarek and Christina taken on too much house and too much co-investor?

Junk Yard Flip

Tarek and Christina spot an interesting property in Long Beach, California as they peruse the day's listings. It's a very small house with a massive structure in the backyard and because the house is currently tenant-occupied, Tarek and Christina will have to make their buying decision without the benefit of personally inspecting the property. The potential value of the back structure is too much to pass up and Tarek and Christina make a deal to buy the property; but when they arrive as the new owners, they are shocked by what they find. Can Tarek and Christina transform this trash heap into a treasure trove or will they be left wishing they never laid eyes on this junk yard flip?

With the house in various states of disrepair, Tarek and Christina are excited to have a clean slate for design but cautious about the problems that could be lurking in a homeowner's do-it-yourself renovation.

Abort Flip

Since the property is currently tenant-occupied, they can't inspect inside the house and their decision to buy will have to be made based on what they can see from the car. It's a gamble to be sure, but with comparable properties selling for nearly $100,000 above this home's asking price, it's an educated risk. Will Tarek and Christina choose to accept this mission or could their good fortune flip into a flop?
