Why House Flipping Shows are Great for Real Estate Investors

Real estate investors often don’t know what to look for when buying a house to flip or renovate their properties to make the most profit. House flipping shows are great for real estate investors because they can give them a realistic look at what it’s like to start flipping homes along with current real estate trends. While many of these real estate shows are highly entertaining, they are also very educational to motivate investors to do real estate right.

1. Property Brothers

This show puts an interesting twist on real estate investing. Twin brothers Jonathan Scott and Drew Scott look for properties that homeowners severely neglect. They often do a lot of negotiating to buy each home at the lowest price possible. By the time they’re done renovating each property, the brothers create a dream home that tends to be worth a lot more than they originally bought it for.

2. Flip or Flop

Many viewers have fallen in love with this real estate reality show because of the banter between Tarek and Christina (formally Christina el Moussa). Although this couple purchases houses to flip in a rather tough real estate market in Southern California, they can still profit.

This profit has to do with the fact that they consider each purchase and the potential to make money. Additionally, Christina and Tarek delve so much into the financials of each real estate investment that they buy. Thus, this show teaches a lot of investors how to determine whether or not a property is a good purchase.

7. House Hunters

This show aired back in 1999. Fans love it, and critics hate it as some aspects of the show seem to be dramatized for TV purposes. However, you can’t deny that it is entertaining to watch all of the dramatic scenes between buyers as they disagree on what they want.

16. Vanilla Ice Project

Many home-flipping shows leave viewers wanting more because each home renovation is condensed down to fit into one episode. However, the Vanilla Ice Project is different because he rehabs a property throughout many other episodes.

This style gives viewers a glimpse into what it’s like to flip each area of a home. Because this show is based in Palm Beach, Florida, viewers get to see a lot of intense flips of some massive properties.
