We’ve all seen those TV shows where up-and-coming house flippers turn run-down houses into the most beautiful homes. Either renovating them into modern living spaces or restoring them to their former glory. One can appreciate the beauty behind it all. Increasingly growing in popularity, flipping houses can either turn nice profit or sink the renovator’s hopes and dreams. Welcome to the world of house flipping.

A whopping percentage of houses have been flipped in 2022
Based on real estate data gathered by ATTOM, nearly 1 in 10 houses sold in the first quarter of 2022 were flipped homes. This figure comes as the highest since 2000, nearly doubling since 2021. The reality is that flipping houses can be profitable when done right, but that doesn’t guarantee success. According to ATTOM, the actual profit margins have dropped substantially to their lowest point since 2009.

Nobody showed any interest in this 1887 York, Pennsylvania home when it was originally put on the market, but someone spotted a hidden gem and made magic happen. Originally designed in the Queen Anne style, it once featured delicate brick detailing, contrasting trims, a large porch and many decorative details.

This project shows how fun renovating houses can actually be. Enriched with stunning shades of terracotta red, gold and olive green, the patio is now a welcoming space for afternoon relaxation. The once run-down garden now boasts beautiful flowers and trees.
