Thinking about buying a newly flipped house?
Renovated homes offer attractive updates, but make sure the house flipper did a good job before you seal a deal.
Find out the property’s history and what types of renovations were completed. Your real estate agent can work to get you answers.
If structural changes were made, verify they were properly permitted and are up to code.
Although most house flippers are talented renovators, some might cut corners and take shortcuts to flip a home faster. Others may accidentally overlook issues.
As with any home purchase, get a professional inspection to ensure there are no major problems and inform your buying decision.
