Flipping Houses

I have recently gotten interested in flipping houses, can anyone recommend good websites for basic/getting started information? I have started a blog that I need some good info for.

good one…duh!

I’m serious, according to all of the traffic stats this is by far the most active real estate investment forum on the planet. When you get done reading everything there is to learn here you’ll have a good start.

actually I find this forum a lot better than even my local REIA in terms of knowledge.

Read a few books on it. Even if you hate reading you will need it as a reference. And watch the shows on TLC and A&E

Buy this, read it: http://www.amazon.com/FLIP-Find-Sell-Houses-Profit/dp/0071486100/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/102-4330829-9059306?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1177444048&sr=8-1

It is the best $15 you will ever spend. It will give you a lot of good info on finding, fixing, and selling properties. The most invaluable info in this book is the quiet cost estimations, most flippers don’t figure in money for these costs and get hosed. Your normal flipping shows also tend to ignore them to keep the numbers looking as good as possible and make flipping more exciting.

ya I bought that book this past weekend, haven’t cracked the seam yet though…and yes, the shows do leave out the costs and alot of other thing, but you do learn things here and there.
