If you reside in the New England area, then be sure to check out our next House Flipping School MeetUp on December 19th. This networking event will be a phenomenal opportunity for realtors, contractors and virtually anyone who is interested in the house flipping business.

As always our goal for this next MeetUp will be to connect you with the right people-perhaps even your future house flip power team members. I can speak from experience that establishing relationships with key people in this business can be difficult when just starting out.

Yet one thing is for sure. Most folks reading this post right now will not come to the MeetUp, even if it was being held right down the street from their house. The truth is that very few people are able to overcome their fears and actually take action in this industry.

Without a doubt, overcoming fear and taking action is the first and most crucial step to house flipping success.

4 Tips for Flipping a House Without the Headaches

The Boston Red Sox won the World Series this past week, but instead of going to the celebration parade I went to a house flip I just finished up in Hanover, Massachusetts. I wanted to film some new videos for House Flipping School members because, to be completely honest, this particular house flip proved to be quite the challenge for my team and I.

Even with my time-tested and proven step-by-step house flipping system, some house flips still veer off track at times. Folks, in this business we are working and relying upon real humans to get their job done on time, and stay true to their word. This is true for contractors, real estate agents, interior decorators and anyone else who is involved in the project.

Sometimes us humans make mistakes, and things don't go as we planned. So even with a step-by-step house flipping system on my side, it is still important that I remain flexible and willing to adjust on the fly. You just have to take the good with the bad, and keep your attitude in check at all times.

New Additions for HFS Members

new additions

The past few weeks have been real exciting here at House Flipping School. Personally I have met a ton of new people, some who have been investing in real estate for years and others who are just thinking about getting started. It's been a real fun ride.

On October 16th we held our first ever monthly House Flipping School MeetUp. We had over 65 people show up from a variety of different backgrounds and professions. The MeetUp proved to be a great opportunity for building your team and making those connections that really help grow a business.

While at the MeetUp I was able to talk directly with many blog readers and House Flipping School members. It was nice to get out from behind the guise of the computer, and actually speak 1 on 1 with many of you.

A few HFS members even gave me some helpful recommendations on how to improve the membership side of this blog. In particular these members wanted:

  • An easier way to navigate through the dozens of educational posts here on HFS
  • Access to some "older" pieces of premium content that were available when we launched HFS over 1 year ago

I take your recommendations seriously, so last week I reached out to my website guy Ryan and explained that we needed to make some changes.

Here's what we have added so far to the HFS membership experience. This is really just the tip of the iceberg of what we have in store.
