Flip or Flop: Fort Worth (2017-2018)

Getting into real estate as a profession is a gamble. The potential of earning more than a reasonable income is more than compelling. But, the risk is that if things go south, those involved could lose their shirt.

Flip or Flop: Fort Worth aired on HGTV from 2017-2018. A Texas offshoot of the original California-based series, the show follows married couple and military veterans Andy and Ashley Williams as they buy, renovate, and sell run-down houses. As with every show within this genre, there are always problems and the possibility of not being able to sell the finished product is always there in the background.

Unfortunately, some shows are not meant to last. As much as I enjoyed it, my opinion was not enough to keep it on the air for more than a year.

Do I recommend it? Yes.

Throwback Thursday-Flip or Flop (2013-Present)

Flipping houses, especially ones that are in less than desirable conditions is akin to real estate gambling. One never knows how much time, effort or money it will take to rehabilitate and sell the property until you get involved in the process of the renovation.

On the HGTV show, Flip or Flop, the formerly married coupleĀ Tarek and Christina El Moussa are in the business of flipping and re-selling houses. These houses are often in need of more than a simple cosmetic transformation, they often in need of a complete makeover. At the end of each episode, the house is completely redone and the hope is that it is sold for at a least a minimal profit.

Flip or Flop is one of those reality shows that is addictive, but in a good way. It’s not mind numbing, parents do not have to cover the eyes and ears of little ones and it’s entertaining.

I recommend it.
