It’s a good time to be flipping homes, especially in a few big cities. In a study conducted by Redfin, flips brought $102,400, on average, in sale price over the original purchase price of homes turned over. That’s better than the average of $98,500 per flip in 2014, and well above the $90,900 that flippers were getting during the last housing boom.
