There was a second Flip That House that I have not seen before with Brian and Jennette Fisher. They are an older couple who have obviously been flipping for a while and have their 6 kids help them out. They bought a 1,400 sq ft cottage in Lake Elsinore, CA for $340,000. It has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. They have budget of $20,000 and timeline of 4 weeks. Brian has a vision of restoring the kitchen to a retro 50's look. Unfortunately after the demo in week 3 it turns out that he has pneumonia and goes to the hospital to have his lungs drained. There are complications and Brian dies. By week 7 Jennette and the kids are back on the project trying to finish what dad started. I must admit it is very inspiring watching mom and the kids divide and conquer and do the jobs needed. Again, their kids had their calendars cleared for the 6 week redo and 2 have to go back to school and 1 starts a new job. Jeannette asks for help from all the contractors that she and Brian have used over the yrs and people come to help finish the project. Jeanette does admit that she did not realize the extent of the work that Brian did until this project. A group of faux painters ask to help and do a great job painting the wood beams in the living room, and making the brick fireplace look like field stone. I did like the koi pond they painted on the dining room floor, but some of the other murals on the walls may not appeal to the widest possible market. Still it was beautiful work, although I could do with out the chickens on the kitchen walls.
The realtor says the house should be listed between $450,000 - $460,000.
time: 4 weeks
time: 12 weeks
potential profit: $85,000
