Finding homes to flip in Salt Lake City.

12 Replies

My husband, Kevin, and I are looking for homes to flip in the Salt Lake City area, where we live. We have extensive experience in construction and property management, but are new to flips. Our next step is finding a good deal! The golden question. 😊

Thanks to BP, we've spent hours and hours learning about real estate investing and are now ready to take some aggressive action to get our first deal.

What’s the best place to look for deals in the SLC area?

Anyone else doing flips in Northern Utah that we can connect with? Thanks!!

@Charlotte M. Varble Attending local real estate investor meet ups is a good way to make those connections. I've been to a couple myself recently and I've found them to be helpful.
