Start Your Fix and Flip Education. Build Your Own Business. Gain Flexibility.

Creating your own successful fix and flip business can be incredibly rewarding, provide a fantastic level of income and give you the schedule flexibility you’ve always wanted. Want to Flip Houses But Don’t Know Where to Start? Can it really be done or is the promise of lifestyle and money from a rewarding career just an illusion?

Over the past five years, we’ve completed hundreds of fix and flips. Some have been much more successful than we thought they would be, but we’ve also made our share of mistakes along the way. From personal experience as well as from other people I know who fix and flip homes, I can absolutely say it is more than possible to create a fix and flip business of your own.

Many of the fix and flip training systems you find in a Google search are really systems designed to help you wholesale properties without risking any of your own money. Some of the real fix and flip systems concentrate on finding properties through their proprietary marketing system and then tell you to turn your project over to a General Contractor you trust for the remodel. Then there are the TV shows that provide lots of entertainment and information but very little about the real nuts and bolts of the project from start to finish.

We created the Fixters Academy to simply answer the question “Want to Flip Houses But Don’t Know Where to Start?”. Whenever we attend a school function, a sporting event, a barbecue or party, the conversation inevitably comes around to “So, what do you do for a living?” When we tell people we flip houses, the next sentence is always “I would love to flip houses, but I don’t have any idea where to start.”

With the graying of America today, there are millions of folks who have lived in their homes for thirty years or more who are looking to transition into a house closer to their kids or grandkids, a lifestyle community, or simply a smaller property or assisted living community. Many of these great seniors simply want a fair price for their home and an easy transition. It is also often important to them to know their home will be renovated and made even nicer for the neighborhood. After all, they’ve known some of these neighbors for decades and want to leave their home in good hands. On the buy side, the millennial generation of today is slowly beginning to start or expand families and want to own a home. During the great recession, the millennial generation got crushed by graduating college with record student debt and then thrown into a horrible job market. Many publications made fun of millennials moving into their parents’ basement but they had no choice!

Fast forward to today and many millennials are getting their personal balance sheets in order. In addition, for the first time in a long time, we are seeing meaningful down payment assistance being offered to first time home buyers with a good credit score. In many instances, this means a conventional mortgage with just one percent down. When you compare this to how apartment rents are rising across the country, owning a home now seems like a great option.

The source of properties to purchase for fixing and flipping is the graying of America. The demand for purchasing new homes is coming from pent-up millennial demand. We strongly believe both of these demographic trends have 15 or more years to go! So, as long as people continue to get older, millennials start families or want to buy homes, and mortgages remain affordable, you can create a successful and sustainable fix and flip business!
