The 5 Best Fix and Flip Cities in the United States

By Allen Shayanfekr | August 8, 2017

Flipping houses is big business. With a bit of knack, a lot of hard work, and the right location, even amateurs can turn a profit. The best fix and flip locations must satisfy several important benchmarks. The information below discusses these criteria and highlights several of the best fix and flip locations of 2017.

Qualifying the Best Fix and Flip Locations:
Location, location, location. There’s more to flipping houses than buying the closest derelict property, rehabbing the kitchen, then sticking a for-sale sign in the yard. Target locations with healthy economies. Steady population growth, new shopping centers, and large housing developments all indicate a strong local economy.

Quality of life factors to consider include the education system, crime rates, salary numbers, unemployment numbers, and the cost of living. Additionally, material costs heavily influence the best fix and flip locations. Depending on the area of the country, granite countertops, sheetrock, and other building supplies can vary greatly. Also, contractor and labor costs factor into the equation.

Taking into account all of these considerations, and more, the following list showcases the best fix and flip locations around the U.S. — in no particular order.
