While the housing sector has demonstrated an increased propensity for volatility, there are those that have successfully weathered the storm with prosperous results. Accordingly, there are few as qualified to comment on successfully mitigating risk than CT Homes’ Flip This House San Diego team.

Despite fluctuations in our economic standing and unpredictable foreclosure rates, successful investors can leave their mark on even the most distressed communities. So how can investors reduce or eliminate risks when flipping homes in San Diego and throughout Southern California? The Flip This House San Diego team exercises the following precautions when mitigating risk:

1. Know What You Are Doing

House flipping shows on reality TV can make the process seem fun and effortless. While flipping houses in San Diego may seem easy enough, there are plenty of challenges, quirks and legal hurdles to navigate. Investing in real estate education will provide you with a good foundation to start your business.  It is the logical first step and will continue to help throughout your career.  Those without a solid foundation will have a difficult time adjusting to the market.

2. Expect the Unexpected

As predicted by ‘Murphy’s Law,’ anything that can go wrong, will go wrong when flipping houses in San Diego. Estimate expenses high and returns low so that you won’t be caught off guard.  Expecting the unexpected will better prepare you for what is to come.  The Flip This House San Diego team can attest to the benefits of being prepared for any situation that presents itself.

3. Do Your Due Diligence

Even in a fast and healthy market like this, if you are going to remain successful and solvent when flipping San Diego properties, you need to complete every deal with due diligence. There is no excuse not to. Otherwise, what looked like a profitable property, can quickly become a money pit.

4. Have A Good Attorney on Retainer

If you are ever in doubt about a certain element of a deal or it looks like a lawsuit might be blowing your way, it’s always good to have a great real estate attorney on call. Waiting until you’ve got an issue is usually too late to go shopping for one. Interview several and put the best on retainer.
