About ten years ago the House Flipping craze began.
I don’t mean that it was the first time people have bought houses to flip – that has been happening for decades – but when it became popular.
To this very day there are several different TV shows about people who buy, renovate, and sell old houses. Let me tell you that it seems a lot easier on TV than it is in real life! I have put together a small team of experts who work with me, and over the years we have gotten pretty good at the process. There are six people on my team, and Luke is the one who specializes in HVAC systems. Every member of my team is valuable, but Luke with his HVAC certification is one of my key workers. Before I buy any house I always send my team in first to check for “red flags.” For example, Luke inspects the HVAC system to make sure it’s still in working condition, or good enough that he can make it work. If Luke finds that the entire HVAC system is garbage and needs a full replacement, then I pass on that house. Just like having bad plumbing or a rotten roof, an unusable HVAC system turns a good investment into a money pit. Without Luke’s expertise in the HVAC industry I might lose a lot of money on certain houses, so his insight is quite valuable. Luke has been bugging me for a raise, and I have to give it to him because without his HVAC wisdom my team won’t be as strong.
