Tarek and Christina el Moussa

Q: How did Tarek and Christina learn the insider real estate secrets that your course teaches?

A: Tarek and Christina honed their real estate skill set over several years. After the real estate market dried up in 2008, the couple had to tone down their lifestyle and find new work. In 2010, they did their first flip and,

Success Path’s Advice on Flipping Houses

Q: How much time will I need to dedicate to house flipping in order to succeed?

Q: How much risk is involved in the business of flipping houses?

Q: What is the number one piece of advice you would give to someone looking to get into house flipping?

Q: What is the difference between wholesaling and house flipping?

Q: What is the best way to start building a real estate network?
Network with others in your community. Meet realtors. Attend events. Find a local or statewide group that shares your interests. As the saying goes, your network is your net worth.


Q: How do I determine the After Repair Value (ARV) of a home?
A: In order to determine the ARV of a potential flip, start by looking at comparable sales in the area. Homes in similar neighborhoods, with a size, age, or floor plan similar to your finished product. The closer that home comes to what you have planned for your finished home, the more accurate of an estimate it will be.
