Buying a "flipped" house

Buying a house can be a challenging process. Today there are many homes on the market referred to as investor flips. We inspect flipped houses almost daily here in San Diego. Here are two videos of some of the things we see as Home Inspectors. Keep in mind that there is no perfect house, and there is nothing wrong with buying a flipped house. Just be sure to hire an experienced Home Inspector!

Note: This video was filmed during a Home Inspection and was not planned or edited, its just a few clips spliced together, so keep in mind its a little rough. A must see for someone putting in an offer on a flipped house. Often times they look great on the surface, but need some more TLC
