I looked up the background on Flip or Flop couple from CA. They were working in real estate when the market crashed and they sold their nice home and moved into a $700.00 per month apt to rent while awaiting their first baby. In desperation they got investors to help and started flipping. They have done quite well and now bought their own home. Check it out. I will advise that if you record it, set the recorder to cover the show that follows it, because it goes over about 5 seconds and you sometimes miss the profit they got on the sale.
Ref. the Renovation Raiders. I saw the first part of the lady host talking. She doesn't appeal to me. And I'm not sure why they have to do things in one evening. Wouldn't it be better to not rush and cut corners, but take time and do the kitchen over the course of a week? Over the years, I have tired of the rush theme on the makeover shows. I'm not sure I want to see more.
Please post about the show if you watch it. I am curious.
