Let me start this post by saying that I think flipping real estate is great.
In fact, I would love to buy, renovate, and flip a house someday. But, this post is not about flipping real estate exactly; it’s about the Kingdom equivalent thereof. And it’s important that you understand first that I am NOT saying that flipping houses isn’t Kingdom, because it can be. Flip all the houses in the world, and make a bundle of money doing it. More power to ya. 🙂
But you will see what I mean below. I want to use flipping houses as an illustration for something amazing that God offers you for your finances in the Kingdom. Whew! (Wipes brow.) Now that we’ve got that more or less covered, let’s begin. 🙂
People who are skilled at construction and investments often flip houses because it’s a methodical way to gain a profit.
The theory is that if you identify a house that needs help but has potential, purchase that house for a song, and repair it–doing much of the work yourself–then you can sell it afterward and keep the profit. This is an appealing investment method–if people know what they’re doing–because it’s a pre-determined path to wealth. Buy low, sell high. Works every time.
