How to Flip a House – The "After" Pictures and Staging

House #3 is completed and I am trying to figure out how to flip a house in a market, that in my opinion, is getting worse and not better like I am hearing in the news. House flipping is risky business, I know, and unlike other types of property investing, rehabbing houses is very dynamic. That is one of the reasons I like it so much!

When considering how to flip houses there are many strategies available and this time around I am giving staging a try. I had heard other investors have mixed opinions about this some rave about it while others say it’s a waste of money. So what better way to figure out if this a good way to sell your house than giving it a try…

After shopping around I came across recommendations for a staging professional that works with investors and after explaining my objectives and business we found a staging package that she could do and fit my budget.

I want to flip this house in the least amount of time but figuring out how to flip a house quickly has been a steep learning curve for me. I will cover specific aspects of the renovation and budget in another post but as you can see from the pictures, no amount of staging will disguise a poor renovation.

Without tooting my own horn too much I think the rehab came out very nice and several agents, neighbors and visitors have told me so…

For reference you can look at the before pictures and I’ll show you here pictures with and without staging so you can see for yourself:

Before

After: landscaping included taking out the old scrubby bushes, planting new ones, creating a pine straw bed around the trees and seeding new lawn. We kept the original paint and just touched up were it was needed, painted the shutters black, there are also new windows and all the trim was painted white. Front door was painted burgundy.


Staged. Small dining table with silverware, some plants and fruit baskets on the counters and picture on the wall.
