How I Landed a Flip in a Competitive Market

Today’s video comes from our new fix and flip project in South Philadelphia. I shot the video with Roberto Lobrace from Corsa Home Solutions.

This opportunity would have never happened if it was not for BiggerPockets since we originally met the couple via this site.
