I really enjoy the entire process of flipping houses. Whether it is finding new investment opportunities, tearing down walls or negotiating a final purchase price - I really do love it all.
One of the most satisfying aspects of flipping houses is looking back at what a renovated home used to look like. I am consistently amazed at the transformation that takes place once my team and I get to work.
Over the years I have taken many before and after pictures that help to document the dramatic changes many of our properties go through.
Every once in a while I find it beneficial to take a look at these photos. Sometimes when I feel slightly overwhelmed, viewing these before and after pictures brings me back down to Earth. It's a nice reminder of not only the income I have been able to generate for myself and my team, but it also reminds me that I am helping to create a comfortable living space for a family or individual.
Creating new living spaces is really what is going on here. We're taking houses that are in many instances, unhealthy places to be living, and transforming them into beautiful spaces where people want to live. It's good for me, it's good for the new homeowner and it's also good for the surrounding community.
That is what flipping houses is all about.
When I view my career from this perspective, it makes it easier to deal with unexpected issues and "problems." For example, I may have an easier time dealing with a permitting problem, once I remember that someday an ordinary guy like myself might be raising a family like mine in this house.
If your goal is to flip houses for a full-time living, then it is important that you too adopt a mental attitude that allows you to deal with unexpected issues in a positive and constructive manner. It really is important to continually work on developing a house flipping mindset.
And these photographs continually help me to do just that!
As this blog continues to grow I'll be sure to add in more before and after links below.
