Are You a 1st Time House Flipper?
Would You Like to See Your 1st Deal On TV?
Learn How You Could Be On The DIY Network’s
New TV Show About First Time Flippers!
Watch Video!

Atlanta REIA has been contacted by the casting department for the DIY Network’s new show called “First Time Flippers”. They are looking for first time house flippers in the Atlanta area to feature on the upcoming season of the show. The show is about whether or not two First Time Flippers can turn a disaster house into a dream home. The show will chronicle the highs and lows of finding, fixing and flipping a house as investors take on their very first deal. Will they make a profit or will they break the bank?

People that are featured in an episode of First Time Flippers will receive $5,000 for allowing the show to film their flipping experience. Since the title of the show is “First Time Flippers”, they are looking for people who really are fixing and flipping a house for the first time. They do not want seasoned pros or people who are already flipping houses for a living. Also, they said they prefer people who plan on doing the majority of the physical work themselves – it’s just not as entertaining to watch somebody buy a house and then hire contractors to essentially fix it for them. Plus, this show is going to be airing on the DIY Network, which stands for “Do It Yourself”.

The Onsite Renovation Group
Meets Tuesday, January 21st at NOON
3152 Dodson Dr, East Point GA 30344

3152 Dodson Dr, East Point GA 30344This month, on Tuesday, January 21st at Noon, the Onsite Renovation Group returns to 3152 Dodson Dr, East Point GA 30344. We visited this house back in November when it was undergoing a moderate renovation including some re-framing and a lot of wiring and plumbing work. The renovation is now complete giving us the opportunity to critique the renovation and point fingers to things that may have been done differently. Parking is spacious but the driveway is steep, so you may want to park next door Sykes park.

Onsite Renovation GroupThe Onsite Renovation Group, led by Aaron McGinnis of Craftbuilt Properties, is an new educational and networking group that focuses on the acquisition, renovation and retail resale (fix and flip) of single family residential homes inside the I-285 perimeter and the in-town neighborhoods. The purpose of this group is to allow both new and experienced rehabbers and investors to meet, network and share knowledge and experience with “hands on” access to real property. The Onsite Renovation Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at NOON at an active renovation site, build site or rental property which will vary from month to month. There is currently no charge to attend these meeting.
