In each episode of Desert Flippers, Eric and Lindsey search out a diamond in the rough, but they might find something that's just plain rough.

Squatters and Scorpions

Eric and Lindsey buy a Palm Springs property sight unseen, but once they get inside they see that it's been trashed by squatters and inhabited by scorpions. The only way to make a profit is to gut the home and start fresh, adding extra dollars to their budget. Lindsey is optimistic that they can make the money back by adding a bocce court and making one bedroom into a casita, but the clock is ticking as her due date is fast approaching. Can they turn this home into paradise before the new baby arrives?
