Wisconsin transplants Eric and Lindsey Bennett are transforming sunny Palm Springs, California one dilapidated house at a time. Renovating 20 properties a year while raising three small children is no small feat, and this couple takes it in stride.

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.

Just Add Water

Lindsey and Eric Bennett look to turn a quick profit after finding a great deal on a house. The flip seems like a simple job at first but when the cost of renovation begins to rise, the couple decides the house needs a little something extra to interest buyers. They're hoping that by installing a backyard pool and spa, the selling potential of the house will increase and the costly investment will be worth the risk.
