Hi. My name is J Scott, and I’m a professionalhouse flipper. If you’re looking for a free resource where you can learn how to flip houses for a living or just want to learn how to rehab a house for fun and profit, you’ve come to the right place.
Experienced investors often throw around the term “analysis paralysis” to refer to those new investors who really want to get the ball rolling with their first property, but who can’t seem to get past the “research” phase. These new investors never feel ready to jump into the game, either because they are scared of the unknown or because they don’t feel like they have enough information to be successful.
I originally started 123Flip.com to track my wife’s and my journey as a new real estate investors — we wanted to avoid the “analysis paralysis” and decided that keeping a blog of our progress would keep us accountable. In 2008, we started posting (in gory detail) every aspect of our flip projects. Because of our willingness to be transparent with our missteps, our mistakes and our financials, we gained a quick and loyal following. But, as we passed our 50th house flip and got pretty good at this business, we found that our mistakes — while almost as plentiful — weren’t nearly as interesting anymore.
As 2015 rolled around, my wife and I decided we wanted to branch out from house flipping into new areas of real estate — wholesaling, rentals, notes, multi-family, etc. Just recently, I decided tostart the site up again— I figured that if we were going to be focusing on new areas of real estate, there was some new opportunity to both learn and teach. As 2015 wears on, hopefully we’ll have a lot of new stuff to talk about. Or, if you’re just interested in getting started flipping houses, you can still benefit from many years of blog posts, articles, pictures and data about our flipping adventures.

She was able to work quickly and was very knowledgeable of the real estate contract transactions and evaluation of properties.
