Go Big or Go Home

You’ve heard of the saying, “Go Big or Go Home”? Well, why not make it “Go Big AND Go Home”? With what we saw happen with this property in Aurora, CO, we can confidently say that Phil, the fix and flipper, pulled out all of the stops in order to make this house a home.


Purchased in mid-summer at $188,500.00, the house was in rough shape. Phil set his budget at $45,000.00 with everything from demo and new paint to new hardwood floors and updated appliances. Due to his keen knowledge of the area and the upper class neighborhoods nearby, he knew he had to bring his A-game, so that he did.

For instance, take a look at this half bath. He completely gutted it and replaced it with a modern, sleek look. He re-textured the walls, put in new floors, and finished it off with a gorgeous new vanity with a drop-in sink. Talk about jaw-dropping.

We move into the kitchen and see that his A-game didn’t stop in the bathroom. Again, he completely gutted it and put in new floors, new tile, new appliances, and new paint. Everything is sparkling and new. Almost too luxurious to cook in, right? No way, this kitchen offers any chef the ability to make scrumptious masterpieces that look as good as the setting they were made in.

The fact of the matter is, Phil took this home from rags to riches. He saw the beauty underneath what was left by the previous owner. And a good thing he did! He ended up selling this house for $330,000.00 after only 4 months of solid work! That’s an incredible payoff and he earned every penny. There is no doubt about it, he went BIG and made this a home.

How to Flip for Profit in 2022

At the beginning of 2022, flipped homes would sell in a matter of hours, rather than weeks or months. The fix-and-flip experience will be a little different in the remainder of 2022. How can you flip for profit this year?

What Properties Will Flip for Profit?

Your best bet for income in real estate flipping will be sticking to medium price point properties.

Some areas – for example, City center of Denver — are still doing great in higher price ranges. People are still selling $1 – 2 million dollar properties with no issues. But in smaller communities, there are fewer people who can afford $600,000 – $900,000 properties.

With rising interest rates, people who were looking in those higher price ranges now need to look a little lower. Medium property prices are also always competing with rent.

Even though interest rates have gone up 5 – 6%, a $150,000 – $250,000 house will still be in a competitive market with rent. As long as they can afford it, people will always steer toward buying a home rather than renting.

Rent prices aren’t going anywhere but up. We may see changes in the renting sphere as congress discusses hedge funds and other big investors driving rent prices up. But for you now, rising rents could push more people to consider home ownership in the low-to-mid price range.

Flipping Expectations for 2022

When you look at your market, know that 3-bedroom, 2-bath, and garage homes will always be reliable as a seller. People will always be searching for those types of properties for their families.

You’ll find buyers in this range, but be sure to adjust your expectations. In the last market, buyers would make offers within hours or days. The reality of this upcoming market is it might take one or two months to find a buyer. Be patient, take your time, look at your area, and keep an eye out for upcoming foreclosures and other opportunities.
