Lindsey and Eric find a five-bedroom home with a list price well below the area comps. Although the property looks good on the outside, the interior is a mess that was left in a state of mid-renovation. Lindsey and Eric have to figure out why the previous owner jumped ship and then fix all the issues left behind, including a courtyard in disrepair. They count on the upgraded finishes and increased outdoor appeal to make this previously abandoned flip compete with the rest of the pack.
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.
It's no surprise that buyers are passing by a property that sits at end of an airport runway, but with low inventory in the desert, Lindsey and Eric decide to take a risk and purchase the home. The key to the flip is blowing away buyers with a new open concept inside and massive entertaining and living space outside. In real estate, location is everything, though, and Lindsey and Eric hope their upgraded design is enough to overcome this home's unfortunate downside.
Lindsey and Eric get more than they bargained for when they buy an abandoned, overgrown home. After peeling away the dirt and grime, they hope to update the design and maximize the house's stunning mountain views. However, many obstacles stand in their way, including a 50-foot tree that's grown into the roof.
Eric and Lindsey Bennett take on a property in disrepair that has been deemed a tear-down by the seller. The flippers think they can salvage the home and give it new life, but the more they uncover, the more frightening this flip becomes. A rotting carport, a damaged roof and severe mold send the renovation costs skyrocketing and leave the couple wondering if they should have listened to the seller and torn the whole thing down.
Lindsey and Eric seem to be the only ones willing to take on a challenging fire-damaged home with a low price tag and high market risk. What looks like a few charred walls turns out to be a much larger issue that takes a chunk out of the profit when major roof repairs are required. The flippers have to make some hard decisions on design if they want to attract buyers while staying under budget and on schedule.
When Eric and Lindsey Bennett roll the dice and bid on a property sight unseen, their winning bid looks like a good bet at first glance. The well-maintained home has an outdated style but no major red flags, and the flippers hope that Lindsey's modern, natural design can get buyers in the door. But the whole project may be jeopardy when a crack in the floor threatens to add thousands of dollars to the budget.
Lindsey and Eric take a risk when they overpay for an "easy" flip. To make up for the inflated purchase price, they decide to add high-end finishes that they hope will attract high-end buyers, but mounting renovation costs prove this flip to be anything but easy.
Eric gets a hot tip about a home that's going on the market soon and locks it up at the asking price to avoid a bidding war. The house comes with plenty of risks, however, including water damage, a drained pool, signs of termites and a funky floor plan. The team hopes a little elbow grease and a modern Moroccan design by Lindsey will be enough for them to jump over their hurdles and sprint toward a sizable profit.
A three-bedroom home with a swampy pool and a lack of outdoor aesthetic catches Lindsey and Eric's eye. If they want to make top-dollar, the duo will need to update every room and revamp the entire floor plan. Everything goes according to plan until a rare torrential downpour in the desert threatens to rain on their flip parade and their potential for profit.
Eric pounces on a home he's had his eye on for over a year in a high-end neighborhood where homes sell for over a million dollars. Lindsey plans for an outdoor oasis and high-tech master bath to bring the home up to par with comps in the area. However, the risky flip gets even riskier when they run into permitting issues and thousands of dollars worth of equipment is stolen.
Lindsey and Eric think they've struck gold when they come across a property to flip in a desirable neighborhood with low inventory. But an easy in-and-out renovation gets messy when they run into some unexpected and costly complications like a roof in disrepair and major electrical issues. The pressure rises as pricey setbacks make it necessary to sell this simple farmhouse at a top-of-the-market price.
Lindsey and Eric Bennett score a home with a strange layout but a lot of potential for profit. To turn the property into the four-bedroom that it was advertised to be, they're going to have to completely reconfigure the floor plan and update everything. Temperatures and renovation costs begin to rise, however, and problems involving duct work and load-bearing posts threaten to become obstacles when it comes to selling this out-of-the-ordinary house in a competitive neighborhood.
Eric and Lindsey overpay to get a foot in the door of a rundown property in a highly desirable neighborhood. This flip will be worth the high cost if they can change the home's 1970s style into a desirable midcentury design but if they want to get there, they'll have to risk tearing everything out and completely changing the look. When an unexpected roof problem arises, the duo scrambles to rework the design in hopes of staying on budget while turning a profit.
