Here’s How Hot Housing Market Killed Property Flipping By Middle Class

George Verdolaga has been assisting property owners in giving their properties a cosmetic boost for almost two decades. Verdolaga has attentively studied how the real-estate market has developed over his lengthy career as a Vancouver interior designer. As a result, the FlowForm Design Group's founder talks with authority on a wide range of topics.
In a phone conversation with the Straight, Verdolaga said, "Fifteen to twenty years ago, it was an aspirational item for the middle class."
House flipping used to draw "hobbyists," average people who just wanted to get on the property ladder, according to him.
"The concept for the part-time flipper was, 'I purchase a property, utilise it, make adjustments, put it back on the market, then buy a new house three to five years later,'" Verdolaga stated.
Typically, the ascent begins with a one-bedroom apartment. The owner then progresses to larger and larger houses, eventually settling on a separate home.
"This procedure often takes 10 to 20 years and has been the traditional path for any potential property owner looking to break into the market," Verdolaga explained.
House flipping didn't have a negative rep back then, either. Nowadays, things are different.
"You're despised because people believe you're raising costs," Verdolaga explained.
What's more, the economics have shifted.
When questioned about house flipping, he says it's essentially dead anymore, with the exception of individuals with really big money or expert builders.

Take note of the 4% disparity between annual income increases and annual real-estate appreciation. As a result, even a family with a combined salary of $120,000 will find it difficult to afford a $735,000 condo, which is the price of a newly built 598-square-foot unit he just observed in Vancouver's Olympic Village, according to Verdolaga.
Only the wealthy and well-established builders remain, according to Verdolaga, because the middle class has been mostly excluded from the flipping game.
He added that purchasers in this market segment are looking for a specific sort of neighbourhood, a specified square footage, a specific style of architecture, and a greater level of refurbishment.
