Beginning your house-flipping journey can seem overwhelming but Peninsula Mini Storage is here to help. We will guide you through the process of searching for affordable homes that meet your criteria.

How to Find Houses to Flip

How to Find Houses to Fix Up & Flip

Research the Area Well

Researching the area and the market is the first step in the process. Consider the needs of the buyer as you begin your search for different homes. Some important factors that a potential buyer may look into are transportation, geographic location, budget, safety, and more. As you find homes that meet the criteria, there may be some that require more repairs than others. Keep this in mind along with your budget as you narrow down the homes that you want to pursue. New Silver Lending’s state-by-state guide to house flipping is a great tool to use once you are ready to begin your search. 

Search Online, But Also Making In-Person Real Estate Connections

Finding real estate online can be a simple process. Zillow is a great tool that can be used to search for homes within your budget. Their online marketplace gives users plenty of information on the homes and even provides virtual tours. Also, Zillow’s additional resources such as their Home Sellers Guide and Foreclosure Center have a lot of useful information that can assist buyers. We recommend reaching out to local real estate agents in the area of the homes you are interested in. You will be able to gain even more knowledge and insight into the market by forming relationships with them.  

Identify Red Flags During Your Search

It is important to identify red flags during your search for homes. While some homes may be affordable and priced within your budget, there may be certain issues and repairs required that are outside of your expertise. In addition, some repairs can be very expensive and this can affect your budget. Listed below are issues you may come across during your home search that we recommend staying away from:

  • Too Small of Kitchen/Bathroom Space
  • Plumbing Issues
  • Electrical Complications
  • Water Damage
  • Cracks in Foundation
  • Pest Infestations
  • And More
