Advice for Buyers Considering a Flipped House

July 19th, 2014 10:37 PM by Dan Howard

  • Beauty is only skin deep. Look at the quality of the work that is in the house before it becomes your home  

  • If it smells, the smell will not get better on its own. If the house is cold or the windows are open when you view the home, make sure that you visit the home while it is closed up and warm.  

  • New does not mean right. Improper installations, improper products chosen for a solution or defective materials can be in any home.

  • Consider hiring an experienced inspector with construction experience before you purchase the house.


                Sometimes a bargain is not a good deal for buyers.  Be a skeptic when considering  flipped homes. The flipper is off the hook the day of closing when all of the covered up defects become the new homeowner's.  A flipper's financial incentive is to spend the least amount of their money to get the most of yours.

Sometimes you get what you pay for. It is unfortunate, but lots of flippers are out to make a buck and sometimes they have to cut corners to get what they want.
