Inland Empire Cosmetic Nightmare

Tarek and Christina spot a large house in Ontario CA, going to auction for an opening bid 150K. But it's too far away to snoop and the auction starts in less than an hour. Based on comps, which are $240K-$260K, they take a leap of faith and head to the auction where they win the house for $180K. 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.

Loud, Louder, Loudest

Christina receives an e-mail from an agent who has a listing in the South Bay neighborhood of Hawthorne. The dated house needs a lot of work and while it's situated on a busy street near an airport and a noisy elementary school, its attractive list price draws in Tarek and Christina. It's a challenge, but this total renovation is the kind of project they love to take on. That is until work begins and a multitude of hidden problems rise to the surface. Will Tarek and Christina's high hopes fall on deaf ears, or can they overcome this home's loud, louder, and loudest problems to turn a profit?

Underwater Flip

Tarek and Christina spot a gorgeous family home in an upscale neighborhood in Cypress, CA. They tour the house with their contractor, Izzy Battres, to see if they want make an offer, and are pleased to discover that the house has a large open floor plan, a downstairs bedroom (perfect for an older family member or a nanny), a bonus family room as well as a large designated office space upstairs. However, Izzy begins to point out troubling signs of water damage that cannot be thoroughly investigated until they own the house, because it will mean ripping into walls. But Tarek and Christina think a home like this could sell for over $700,000, so, even in light of their contractor's warnings, they decide the potential profit margins are worth the risk, and they get the house for $490,000. Construction begins and they quickly discover that the water leaks have created a severe case of black mold, and the rehab costs skyrocket. Will the costs of fixing this mess eat onto their profits, or will leaking pipes leave them underwater?

Pipe Dreams

Tarek and Christina come across a For Sale By Owner property in Garden Grove, California. This type of sale is always exciting for a flipper because it means no real estate agent commissions and an opportunity to negotiate a fair sale price. The house is in good shape and looks to need only cosmetic repairs and improvements. But in the business of flipping, one can rarely judge an old house by its finishes and it is truly what's on the inside that counts. Can Tarek and Christina deal with the hidden problems of an old house or will their hopes of a fast and easy flip turn out to be nothing but pipe dreams?

Hard Money Blues

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a listing in an upscale neighborhood of Whittier, California and although the entire home will need some serious updating from its original 1969 finishes, the renovation appears to be mostly cosmetic and comparable properties suggest great potential for profit. With all their money tied up in other flips, Tarek and Christina must secure a hard money loan to make an offer on the home; but that alone will cost them hundreds of dollars a day in interest and one never knows what budget-busting financial hazards could be lurking behind those popcorn-textured walls. Can their contractor renovate this big house in a small timeframe or will unforeseen problems leave the project a day late and a dollar short? Could this high-end home and its expensive loan leave Tarek and Christina singing the hard money blues?

Too Small to Fail

Tarek and Christina find a short sale home listed in Whittier, California that's rather small but the asking price of $275,000 looks enticing next to comparable properties in the area. With their own resources spread thinly across other flips, Tarek and Christina have only $300,000 to spend on the home and its renovation. Despite their rigid debt ceiling, they're convinced they can purchase and rehab the home within a strict budget. But as problems are discovered and the margins start getting tighter, Tarek and Christina hope they can turn a profit on this investment home that is too small to fail.

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. While Jessie specializes in renovating older, architecturally significant homes, Tarek and Christina are experts at bringing in a flip on schedule and on budget. 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?

Abandoned Flip

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a short sale property in Long Beach, California that looks like a promising investment project, save for one small issue: the massive renovations the previous owners began are only partly finished. 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. Can Tarek and Christina bring this abandoned home out of renovation limbo or could their own rehab woes turn this project into an abandoned flip?

A Pig In A Poke

Tarek and Christina spot a trust sale in Fullerton, California. It's tenant occupied which means they cannot inspect the house, but the numbers look good and after touring a comparable, renovated listing, they feel confident enough to make an offer. Tarek and Christina arrive at their new house ready to design but that will have to be put on hold as they could not have anticipated what they find. Can they keep this flip on track or will a bevy of surprise expenses deliver them a flop? Have Tarek and Christina fooled themselves into buying a pig in a poke?
