Remember Sam from the Atlanta version of Flip This House?

I saw one of his first flips and posted how shoddy the work was and that nobody really bought the house. Well here it is

Guess that's why Richard Davis from Trademark is now with another network and calling the show "The Real Deal".

That's truly disturbing.

There's a BIG difference between the hype and the reality!  (just like the hype from the gurus)  I wonder how many people have lost their butt in the "flipping" business because they saw how easy it was on TV?

I have a good friend of mine that decided to get into this after seeing the hype.  He bought a ghetto house, did minimal rehab, and luckily made $2,000 a few months later.  Then he bought a nicer house for $130,000, it was worth $135,000, did minimal rehab on that and went FSBO for $165,000.  Almost a year later he is now living in the last one with his house for sale now.  Hows that for hype?

Yeah, but Lamont reminds me of "Rerun"...

I don't know what planet Sam's wife is from but all of her taste must be in her mouth because she has NO taste in decorating!!!

I also thought lament and the wife were a bit of a joke, but I liked sam. I can't say I'm too surprised though, at least I still have my wrestling to look forward to!  :anon

I didn't say that he "looked like Rerun", I said, he "Reminded me of Rerun"...

I love watching these shows.  You and I know that there is nothing exciting about rehabbing a house.  I tell my wife that this stuff must be staged.  Last week I watched Richard (with Landmark) have his brother run a rehab in Rock Hill.  He started a crew of contractors (about 20 workers) with no agreed upon price and was surprised when basically paint and carpet was billed to him at $40,000.  Nobody not even Richardís brother is that stupid.  But it made for great drama for the TV.
