Looking to ‘Flip’ A Property For An Easy Profit?

July 25, 2013

Learn more about the caveats of ‘Flip Financing’ and many other Canadian mortgage topics on CP24’s Hot Property every Thursday night at 7:15PM.

Each episode of ‘Hot Property’ stars one of Canada’s top mortgage brokers from Canada’s Premier Mortgage Brokerage – MonsterMortgage.ca. This week’s ‘Hot Topic’ is on Flip Financing and what you need to know before considering the purchase of a property and trying to ‘flip’ it for a profit at later date.

Flipping a property and making a profit is exciting but it has a lot of hidden pitfalls. Understanding them will help you make better decisions and ultimately you can make a better return on your investment. To help you, remember the following:

• Seek good advice from a knowledgeable mortgage agent, realtor and accountant (there are tax implications)
• Make sure you have enough cash on hand to carry your property
• Be prepared to break even
• Understand the local real estate market, as home prices start to stabilize profit margins will get tighter.
