Flipping a property: if that sounds like something you’re interested in, well, you’re in the right place! Making a profit off of real estate investments is by no stretch an easy matter, but there is always money to be made off of old properties that need to be fixed up. Really, by connecting the right people to the right homes that were previously unused, you’re doing them a service. What good is a home if no one is occupying it? Some might see a rough property as an eyesore, but to our real estate flipping experts, we see it as an ideal opportunity.

Finding A Reliable Data Source

Remember that you’ll be using the internet for most, if not all, of your information as it pertains to your market research. Just about anyone can go online and say anything, so do make sure that you’re referencing a credible source. Fairly reputable listing sites and real estate aggregates include:

  • Mashvisor.com
  • Zillow.com
  • Trulia.com
  • Redfin.com
  • Realtrends.com

You’ll find more sites out there, but those should give you a starting point.

What Type Of Information Am I Looking For?

Of course, this is nearly as important as finding a good data source. At the very least, you’ll want to take into account factors like property prices and sale prices, the status of a property (sold, pending, for sale, etc.), characteristics of a property (number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the age of the home, the square footage, number of floors, unique qualities, and so forth) as well as the walk-score and any renovations that went into the home.

Comparing Similar Properties And Making A Decision

Obviously, we’ve boiled down a myriad of information into a simple blog post, but you’ll eventually want to compare like properties in the area once you’ve expressed interest in a particular house. Comparing will help you better identify historical market trends, where things currently stand, and what future projections may look like.
