Shane Boyd here.
I just found biggerpockets while looking for information on house flipping. Nice!
I've owned a home inspection company since 2004 in Myrtle Beach, SC and I'm
finally taking the plunge into REI. Truth is, I wanted to be a Realtor back in 2004,
but since I was in construction for years I thought it easier to start in the home
inspection field, THEN get my real estate license.
However, after seeing what buyer's agents did, I thought real estate wasn't for
me. So 14 years later, I've come full circle and I earnestly want to do my 1st
flip before December 31st, 2018.
Looking forward to learning, connecting and applying what I learn here.
Congrats man! Like I told you when you did the inspection on the quad I was looking at on 17th s, if I can help you out with anything, don’t hesitate to ask.
As for anyone looking for a home inspector in Myrtle Beach, Shane Boyd does a great job. Professional, detailed reports, at a good price.
Hi Shane, welcome to BP! Yeah, being a realtor certainly isn't a glamorous as being a flipper. There are a lot more risks to being a flipper though, so make sure you do your due diligence on everything before getting tied up in a deal.

Nice! Fancy meeting you here. lol!
Thanks for the offer partner (and the kind words).
When I purchased my first house I chatted with the inspector about flipping... turns out he was knee deep in it. I ended up working with him and a group of people who were flipping in Western Washington.
Now I’m in Hawaii (came for work from a lead in that group from Washington 18 years ago) and am considering a RE license or home inspection as a way to access the market here.
Seems like you have a great idea here! Good luck and welcome to BP!
