Learn how to find, fund and flip your first property from an active investor in an online group course.
ENROLLMENT FOR SPRING SESSION ENDS MARCH 9th
SPRING SESSION STARTS MARCH 10th – APRIL 28th 2023
“I had discovered Tracy on social media and was instantly drawn to her wealth of knowledge. I would find myself constantly saving the posts she would create since the posts were just so informative. Then she promoted her course, and I had no doubt that her course would be excellent….her course was beyond excellent!
I had listened to many podcasts and read books about real estate + flipping. But Tracy’s flip school course was so much more than I could have ever learned from the podcasts and books. In her course Tracy really breaks down the fundamentals in such a concise and well planned process providing so much insight. I learned so much!
I would absolutely recommend the Flip School Course for beginners”

“Taking Tracy’s Flips schools was one of the best decisions I could have made in 2022. You see, I had been looking for someone that would teach the basic fundamentals to flipping a home. Tracy’s method is a humble one, how to use real estate as a vehicle to become debt free and build wealth in a supportive and positive learning environment.
Right from the start! I was engaged and very quickly started learning the language of a flipper, helping me communicate with Lenders, Contractors and other Investors. Tracy kept it real, reminding us that the first tool you’ll need to be successful is MINDSET.”

Who is this course for?
This course is for the student who is looking to understand the process of finding, fixing and flipping properties, step by step with access to an instructor and in a group of like-minded friends.
If you have tried the books, blogs, forums, and meetups and are struggling with the know how of how to put it all together or the confidence to get out there and actually TAKE ACTION, this course is for you. Also, if you’re new and wanting to learn in a group setting with an active investor, you’re in the right place!
By the end of this course, you will understand how to find, evaluate, renovate and sell a property for profit, gain the confidence and skill to earn massive profits, and fix up outdated, problem and ugly properties to sell to new owners.
“… this course also offers step-by-step instructions, resources, community, accountability, and a space to ask questions to a real person rather that spending hours searching the internet for answers. The homework assignments are practical and make you take the steps that will actually move you toward your goal of flipping a house. Tracy is down to earth, honest, and encouraging. You will learn so much form this course but more importantly, you will leave knowing that a group of people are cheering you on towards your goals and have your back. Whether you’re just beginning your journey in RE investing or ready to make a move on your first flip, this course is the support that you need. Don’t pass up this opportunity!”

What if I don’t have funds for a down payment? Or enough to cash to buy a flip outright? All these investors seem to pay cash and I don’t have that kind of money!
We’ll definitely be covering the set up, strategies and multiple different ways you can purchase your first flip property, even with little to no of your own funds.
I‘m interested in flipping a house but not 100% sure if it’s the type of investing I want to do.
That’s a very fair concern! I’m convinced all the TV shows have really created the business of purchasing/renovating/reselling homes into a dream job, without really showing the entire process or disclosing the potential pitfalls. This course will expose you to the process and help you decide if it’s right for you. If ultimately it’s not, you’ve saved yourself months of time, possibly tens of thousands of dollars in mistakes and lost opportunity, but will at the same time, give you a skill set to recognize a possible flip (and what to do with that opportunity instead).
How will I know what a good deal even is?
The backbone of being a flipper is understanding the evaluation of a potential projects, not what colors to paint the walls and how designer the house can be made (sorry!) This course will give you the tools and skills to look for, make offers on and just as importantly, when to pass over on properties.
What if everything around me is expensive? There’s no way I can afford to flip houses in my market.
I’m aware the market has gone up an incredible amount in most areas. This course will still be focusing on strategies to target ENTRY LEVEL and MOVE UP price point homes, in your area, and being able to buy and flip them, even creatively.
I want to buy a flip in the next 12-36 months; should I wait to do this course?
Actually, the opposite! Many investors start in the education phase long before they move into action phase; the important part is just not to get stuck there. Getting yourself familiar and comfortable with the first steps is really the best initiation on your journey. It’s not an overnight business, and understanding that it could take a bit of ongoing and consistent action to land your first good deal means that the sooner you learn the right skills, the more ready you will be. Also, as the market shifts, if you think that there will be more opportunity to buy, I would encourage you to be preparing NOW.
What if I can’t be on every live Zoom call? My schedule isn’t always predictable.
Each week, a new lesson with its quizzes and assignments will open. You will have the week to listen to the lesson and complete the homework at your availability. The Friday LIVE zoom calls will be to review the homework and answer questions. The Facebook group is also available for you to interact, ask questions and have the extra accountability.
I’m really in debt, struggling with finances but want to flip a house because it seems I could make a lot of money. Should I take this course?
NO, my strong feedback is to focus on taking care of your current financial situation before trying to take on a major investment of time, effort and money like flipping a property. There are a TON of free resources to start with while you get afloat and I will also always continue to share and teach online through my social channels.
Why is this course so inexpensive? I’ve seen flip companies charging $20,000 – $50,000 for flipping secrets, coaching and teaching.
Honestly, there are no “secrets”, and I’d be weary of any company saying they can provide you a magic bullet to become a success. I cannot speak to other programs, but I am offering this course at an affordable price, because all sessions and correspondence will be done in group/online settings during the schedules times, as to encourage more accountability, group learning and streamlined support.
***Please note: Flip School is only going to be offered 3 times a year. I am a full time real estate investor myself, so am building Flip School as a supportive and effective platform for which to give interested students an education at an affordable price. ***
What this course will NOT cover / will NOT include:
– Buying rentals
– Flipping land, commercial property, multi family, mobile homes or anything other than Single Family Homes, Condos and Townhomes.
– Flipping luxury properties; this will focus on ENTRY level and MOVE UP priced properties
– Flipping new construction
– Getting rich quickly or guru “secrets”
– Flipping properties out of state or out of the country
– There is no private 1-1 coaching, but you will be learning and sharing in a group environment through Zoom, Facebook and Group Q&A
– Scaling an existing business. If you have flipped a property before, this course may be helpful to improve your experience/process, but if you already have an active flip business going, this course does not teach scaling up operationally, systems, hiring, etc.
What’s the cost for Flip School?
Retail value for the tuition for Flip School is currently $4,999, but the pricing will be posted once we start our Spring promotion in early 2023.
Yes, there are courses out there that charge 5 – 10x more than this, and you can be the judge of whatever program fits best for your needs and budget. I am keeping this course affordable for those students who want a HYBRID of a thorough, organized, structured course with resources, but also provides ACCESS to a live coach to answer questions.
You will have access to future updates, lifetime access to the provided resources and can revisit the materials at any time.
“The class was super informative, with step-by-step instructions on how to do a fix & flip. One of our first assignments was calling hard money lenders so we could understand their M.O. Because of this course I felt comfortable making an offer on an investment property, using hard money with a contact I made through this assignment. She is the real deal, knows her stuff and will support you along the way. Money well worth the knowledge you will gain from this course. An awesome bonus is meeting other people with the same goals.”

Is Flip School right for you?
If flipping has been appealing to you, but you’ve struggled putting the pieces together, want a supportive guide and want insight and guidance during a changing market, this course is for you. Flipping properties is not a casual hobby, so it’s also very important to be aware of the best way to approach the process, procedures and resale.
Most investors focus on the potential profits, but gloss over the areas that can cost them dearly. A typical earnest deposit can be $2,500 – $10,000, which you may forfeit if you are bidding on/buying a home and back out. Over-renovating out of glee to design a Pinterest-worthy home can cost you thousands in extra time, material and opportunity cost. Not packaging your flip for re-sale properly can cost you thousands in lost opportunity, and not budgeting or underwriting well can leave you upside down on a property altogether. Especially as the market transitions, each of these points is even more important to understand and approach wisely; the market will no longer float inexperience or expensive mistakes.
If this course can guide you to approach deal-making and buying more thoughtfully, eliminate those huge financial pitfalls, and help you buy your first flip, then the tuition will be a pittance in comparison to your potential upside.
And lastly, if you are interested and committed to flipping your first home, there really are a few ways to learn, one of which is to “wing it” and hope for the best (not recommended, especially as the retail environment is quickly shifting), try to find a local investor to just give you the time, attention and resources you need (rare, but not impossible, but you usually need to already be bringing something to the table), take massive action and use online free resources/forums/local REAI’s for guidance (totally possible if you take action and take advantage of those resources!), or take a course/class from someone who is actively doing it as well and can help show you the way. None of these are right or wrong, but each of them does have a cost, either way. It just depends on if the school of hard knocks, time, or a financial investment is most worth it to you, with where you’re at right now.
“I attended the very first Flip School course and cannot say enough good things about it. After following and admiring Tracy’s work on social media for years, I was thrilled to see that she was offering a course that was not only very comprehensive but also very affordable. I currently work as a project manager for a real estate investor and was attracted to this course to improve my renovation skills and learn how another investor runs her flips, but also to gain a more complete understanding of the entire process of flipping a house; my expectations were absolutely met…”
