Flipping Real Estate
Flipping real estate does not have to be as difficult as
it is sometimes made out to be. Yet there are some definite
guidelines you want to follow to stay out of trouble. Five
years ago, buying properties and holding them was a piece

property to anyone else and you have the right to buy or
assign it during the specified period of time. This would
be similar to a lease option except you are just assigning
the option agreement to another buyer and collecting an
assignment fee that way.
