It seems HGTV recognized TV viewers are unsettled about watching reruns throughout the summer. Now HGTV fans can get the variety they crave when "Flipping the Block" premieres this Sunday at 9 p.m. The renovation show includes fierce competition that is sure to keep viewers on the edges of their seats.
About HGTV "Flipping the Block"
The new show features 4 teams, 4 renovation projects and 1 cash price. HGTV indicates it is the toughest flipping competition yet. When an investor flips a home, they purchase the property with the intent to sell it for profit. Often the investor needs to upgrade and renovate the home to make it appealing to potential buyers and get the greatest return on investment (ROI).
The show is hosted by Josh Temple. To keep the competition fair, the 4 duos are expected to transform 4 identical condos. The run-down condos will need to be revamped to put them on the market. Once they look great, they will be sold to the highest bidder. The team that gets the highest bid wins the competition. The prize is $50,000 and ability for the winning team to prove they can effectively flip a home for profit.
