Flipping America 233, The Flipping America Network

podcast 233 The Flipping America Network

Expected Air Date: 3/14/19


On Tuesday afternoon March 12, 2019, the real estate investing world changed. It was the birth of a project two years in the making. It arrived with barely a whisper but in the coming months and years, the impact of this service will profoundly affect the way buyers and sellers of investment properties will do business. Ladies and gentlemen I give you the Flipping America Network – the FAN!

Music intro.

From the first Flipping America show two years ago we dreamed of providing for the needs of real estate investors nationwide. As we thought about those needs it came down to three things: Deals, Money, and Methods. So we proceeded to bring you the previous 232 shows focusing on Deals, Money, and Methods, with a little inspiration and business how-to sprinkled in. 

I started in this business in 2002 and from the day I started until now the biggest challenge has almost always been finding that next deal. I say almost because there was a time in 2008-2010 where there were more opportunities than I had the money and capacity to deliver on. But for the most part it’s always been about finding that next deal to do. So when we launched this show one of the things we started working on behind the scenes was a way to provide for deal flow for our listeners, friends, and fellow investors. The vision was to create an online marketplace where sellers and buyers could meet and do business. I envisioned a kind of multiple listing service for investors.


  • Advertise your assignable contracts with pictures of the home
  • Don’t waste your time fiddling with mailing programs and buyers’ lists.
  • Focus on your next deal rather than your selling infrastructure.


  • Find your next flip or rental here.
  • Select up to 25 zip codes of interest (not sure of the maximum number)
  • Reserve 48 hour exclusive access to the ZIP code(s) of your choice. 


  • Have an unwanted house?
  • Facing foreclosure?
  • Transfer? Inheritance? Other life events leading you to sell the property?
  • Post your home here for free. You will get an offer – perhaps several!

The FAN is here! FlippingAmericaNetwork.com.

Talk about wholesalers and what they do.

Talk about rehabbers — the deals come to you. Reserve a ZIP code.

Your Questions:

  • “What does it cost to create a profile on the FAN?”
  • What are the technology fees?
  • I heard you can reserve a zip code. Tell me how that works.
  • I inherited a house from a cousin who had no children. It’s 800 miles away. I have no desire to do anything with it, other than sell it. I listed it with a realtor but it needs a lot of work and the listing expired. Can I put this property in the FAN?
  • Do you get to see the actual property address for what is being sold?
  • Will I be able to speak with the seller or wholesaler and ask questions?
  • If I list my property on the FAN but still blast it out to my list and sell to someone on my list, do I still have to pay a technology fee?
  • We pay the technology fee at the time we enter into a contract. What if it doesn’t close?
  • Why do I have to provide a copy of my drivers license photo?
  • What are you doing to prevent daisy-chain listings?
  • Your site says “no dummy listings”. What is a dummy listing? How do you prevent them?
