Ranch House of Ruin

Tarek and Christina come across a trust sale listing in Buena Park, California that looks very well-priced in comparison to recent sales in the area. After walking the home with their contractor and receiving a preliminary budget estimate, they're excited by the potential for profit.

Hilltop Hangup

Tarek and Christina come across a short sale listing in a desirable, hilly neighborhood of La Mirada, California. Although its price as compared to recent sales in the area leaves a tighter profit margin than they would like, the 1990s home is newer than the investment properties they typically buy and shouldn't need as much renovation as a result. With Tarek and Christina's usual contractor tied up by their growing roster of flip properties, they turn to a new contractor who comes recommended by fellow flippers. Will this newer home and new contractor make for a straightforward flip or could surprise costs and small mistakes leave Tarek and Christina risking a flop on this hilltop hangup?

Mid-Century Flip

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a home in Long Beach, California that sounds like the kind of project that has become their standard. But soon after walking the property and visiting a neighborhood comp, it becomes clear that this flip is anything but standard. The architecturally significant mid-century modern home will require Tarek and Christina to step out of their design and renovation comfort zones if they are to turn a profit on their investment. Can Tarek and Christina turn back time on their design aesthetic without inflating their budget or could a present-day flop be looming over this historic mid-century flip?

But with a tenant still living in the property, Tarek and Christina can't see inside the home before deciding to make an offer and anything could be behind that front door.

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?

The Bungalow Gamble

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. If the studio is permitted, it would be a major selling point for potential owners, who might want to offset their mortgage with a renter. 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! Day 2 and it's a broken water main, which once again destroys the budget! With their profit margin getting gouged, Tarek and Christina hold their breath to see if this bungalow gamble will Flip or Flop.

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?

Breaking Up

Tarek and Christina get a lead on a house in Torrance, California that is not only in rough shape, but also has known foundation issues. Right away it seems like this might be a bad buy; but Torrance is an exploding market and the land value alone could make this flip worth the risk. The house is going to need it all: good design, structural improvement, and careful renovation. It's a big project but it has the potential to be a big profit. Can Tarek and Christina transform this down and out home or could significant problems leave their budget and their profit margin on the verge of breaking up?

As budgets crash through ceilings and deadlines continue to be pushed, could this latest flip turn out to be nothing but trouble, or will it prove it always had nothing but potential?

Too Small to Fail
