Flip This House… But Isn’t Flipping Illegal??? Not the investor’s ethical kind!

Everyone is an investor in some form, fashion, or another. You may own stocks, bonds, have a bank C.D., or own real estate. There’s many ways to make money in real estate – rent, leases, appreciation, and more.

During the housing boom, flipping houses was almost a national pastime. Shows like Flip This House, Flipping Out, and Flip That House attracted huge viewing audiences, and nearly every book in Amazon’s real estate top sellers category had the word “flipping” in its title.

If you mention house flipping to a real estate or law enforcement professional, however, they are more likely to think that you are talking about committing a crime. To them, the word “flip” is a nasty four-letter word. HUD (the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development) declared it so when it released its FR (Final Rule)-4615 Prohibition of Property Flipping.

So, is flipping good or bad? Legal or illegal?

Well, that depends which form of flipping you’re talking about. The illegal variety consists of selling a home multiple times over a relatively short period in order to artificially inflate the home’s value and cash out the inflated equity. To begin, a con artist will purchase a home (typically a dilapidated property that costs very little).

He or she will then obtain an inflated appraisal for the property – by finding an appraiser willing to go along with the scam, stealing an appraiser’s identity to forge a fake appraisal, or using a phony appraisal document. The con artist can then apply for a loan for the inflated amount. (Or, the con artist will apply for the loan and then, with the help of a cooperative loan officer, obtain the inflated appraisal to present to the lender.) In either case, the con artist usually takes out the loan in the name of a straw buyer (someone who owns the home in name only) or by using a fake or stolen identity.

Eventually, the house flipper either sells the home to somebody who is unaware of its true value or abandons the home.

That’s illegal flipping in a nutshell.

Legal flipping consists of buying a home for less than its true market value (usually at least 20 percent less), fixing it up, and then selling it at or near its true market value. This fix-and-flip approach is the type of flipping they do on TV shows like Flip This House and Flip That House. It is a shrewd and honorable way to earn a buck in real estate.

As a consumer, knowing the difference between the two types of flipping is important. Know the illegal form of flipping so you don’t break the law or get stuck with an overpriced piece of real estate that’s being used in a flipping scheme. Know the legal form of flipping, so you can fix and flip your way to wealth in real estate.

Welcome to Our New Blog!!

Welcome to our new weblog! In a continuing effort to bring better search results for our customers, clients, and friends looking for information on real estate and more in the Murphy area, we decided to go with a company that specializes in blogs! Before, we used GoDaddy, and results were disappointing because it did not make content easy to find.

Now we’re good to go! Content will be easier for you, the user, to find on search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN, and more. Please feel free to visit us any time at .  We also encourage you to SUBSCRIBE to our updates and have them automatically sent to you.

One bad aspect of the switch is that you will find many of our older pictures previous of this post are lost for good. We will attempt to change some, but in most cases it is too cumbersome of an undertaking.

Enjoy and email us if you have any questions. – Toll Free (866) 687-7496 – Demand the POLTROCK TEAM!

As part of our continuing YouTube campaign to use video tours instead of the old school virtual tours, we bring you this great new home! Video is a far superior way of viewing a home because it shows you much more of the real thing than a virtual tour which is much more selective and only shows what the agent wants you to see.

So rather than me tell you about the stainless steel appliances, amazing long range mountain view overlooking Brothers Restaurant and more, the basement, the 2 car garage, chalet style, loft, high speed Internet, and more, I’ll just let you watch the video to your right! Enjoy!

About 4 years ago, David Ritz (who is also my brother-in-law) left a prominent real estate company here and opened up RE/MAX. A completely new idea in our area, the new real estate phenomenon started in a small office and grew in just four short years from the underdog to the #1 selling real estate office – period. Now in the new office – Cornerstone – it has gone from not only a real estate company, but to a landmark in our community.


We look forward to bringing another successful year at the end of 2008. We appreciate all your support and are excited about helping you find homes and land that will make your dreams of the mountains become a reality!

Real Estate For Sale Magazines in Murphy

We’ve got our first cover! We’re quite excited about having the cover of Southern Home Market magazine. I personally did the layout to ensure its going to be a great issue. It’s a great prowl front chalet home that is great! I look forward to posting the image of the cover when it comes out.

I’ll use this opportunity to explain the difference between many of the magazines in our area. We have currently two real estate magazines in the Murphy NC area: Southern Home Market and Homes for Sale in the Mountains. Homes and Land will also be reintroduced to our area. I’ll be advertising a full page in their first issue to test their effectiveness.

Homes for Sale in the Mountains is a larger, more expensive magazine. I advertised in it for 2006 and sold only one house from it. Sellers – it’s gone. It doesn’t bring enough focus to your property to keep it. Not only that, it’s much larger and I feel that because of that, your property gets “lost” in all the others. It has too many strikes against it to be an effective advertising strategy for your house or land.

Southern Home Market is the current real estate magazine I advertise. They are far more flexible, less expensive, get more calls, and is not so large to where your property is lost. Because of the increased interest in your property, it has been the hands down best choice.

Even though print exposure is important, it’s far from the most important thing. Want to learn more about what to do for your home in Murphy, North Carolina to make it more appealing to a buyer? Email or call us and we’ll be happy to share our marketing plan.
