Tips on How Seniors Can Get Into The House Flipping Business

Home flipping is a booming business. And while it takes a lot of money to get started as a house flipper, there are ways that seniors can get involved in this lucrative trade. It also doesn’t require the commitment of buying and renovating properties full-time as many other businesses do. 

Instead, you can dip your toes into this profitable venture by focusing on the smaller details and working with people who already have the capital to purchase homes and renovate them quickly. Brought to you by The Alfriend Group, here’s how you can get started as a house flipper without spending a fortune up front.

Educate Yourself

It’s important to know as much about the process of flipping a home as possible before jumping in. Reading books, attending online classes, and watching videos are all great ways to educate yourself on how it’s done. There are also many online resources that detail the ins and outs of flipping homes.

Partner With a Contractor

One of the key steps to house flipping is renovating the property. If you don’t have any experience in this field, it may be wise to find a contractor who will partner with you. You can agree on a percentage of the profits made from the sale of the home. After all, they are changing their time and services into cash, which will help offset the cost of starting your own renovations business.

If you decide to work with contractors, or you decide to hire people to help with the remodeling process, consider using software that can help you get payroll done fast. Some software will let your workers track their time, as well as offer direct deposit to those who want to do so. And if you’re juggling a ton of other work, you can automate everything.

Borrow Someone’s Money – But Be Careful!

One of the best ways to get started as a house flipper without spending much money up front is to find someone who has the capital and is willing to loan it out. You can use this borrowed money to purchase homes and renovate them, then you have the opportunity to sell them for a profit. Of course, this isn’t without risk. 

The first thing you need to do when considering this option is to make sure you have enough equity in your home so that the lender will be willing to let you borrow more than your home’s worth. If not, it might be possible for you to put up collateral like gold or stocks in order to secure the loan.

However, if that’s not an option and there are no lenders who will extend credit based on your available equity, then consider taking out a second mortgage on your property for 100% financing at 10-20% interest or take out a short-term bridge loan of 12 months or less at 8-10% interest. Keep in mind that these loans come with strict repayment terms, so they may not be the best solution if you want flexibility. But if you want to dip your toes into house flipping without lots of upfront costs, then this might be an option for you!

Co-op Flipping

One way that seniors can get into the house-flipping business is by co-oping. Essentially, this means you’ll partner up with someone who has more expertise in the industry, and they will provide the capital while you do all of the work. 

You’ll be responsible for finding projects, getting them under contract, researching and negotiating prices, then managing renovations to get the home ready to sell. This is a good option for those who want to try flipping without having to worry about securing funding or handling other aspects of flipping on their own. Another benefit of co-op flipping is that it’s often less risky than going it alone because you have someone else who has more experience at your side.


House flipping can be a lucrative business if you know what you’re doing. But it can also be a risky one if you’re not careful. The first step is to educate yourself on the ins and outs of house flipping by following the steps below. And when you’re ready to start looking for properties, get in touch with The Alfriend Group.
