Flipping houses isn’t always as cute as it looks on HGTV, but here’s a real-life flipping success story that’s as cute as can be!


Flipping houses is often less adorable than Flipping Out makes it out to be, but check out the stellar renovation that Travis and Kerry just wrapped up on this 1,500 square foot 3/2 house in Cedar Park. Little City Investments financed the purchase and remodel for these flippers.


Travis and Kerry contacted Little City after they secured a contract with the sellers in early May. We closed on their purchase loan in early June, and they’re back on the market here in early August. Excellent turnaround time for this flip property – only about 60 days from purchase closing to marketing it.


This was a full remodel of the kitchen and both bathrooms, but the house was structurally sound and didn’t need major plumbing, electrical, or foundation work. Other than all new bathrooms and kitchen, other repairs included a new roof, all new flooring, siding repair, a new back deck, and a whole lot of clean-up. The borrowers are experienced and were able to totally change the look of this house for around $50k. Head this way for our top tips on surviving a rehab flip project like this one.


They purchased this house for $150,000, renovated it for just under $50,000, and it’s currently listed for $289,000. Like most of our borrowers, these investors did contribute some of their own cash to do this deal.
