Flipping a house is when someone buys a property, holds onto it for a short period, and then sells it (the flipping part) for a profit. Instead of buying a home to live in, you’re buying a house as an investment.

It’s about buying low and selling high, investing your sweat equity to cut costs and earn a profit in a couple of months or a year.

When it comes to flipping a house, you usually have two choices,

1. Buying, repairing, and selling are all options. This is the most typical method, which is purchasing a property for less than market value, repairing it to make it more valuable, and then selling it for a profit.

2.  Purchase and sell. Some real estate speculators may simply acquire a house and sell it for a profit a few months later if the neighborhood is in great demand, without doing any repairs or modifications.

If done correctly, flipping houses may be a lucrative business. There is, however, a high risk/high return stigma associated with it.
