Meet the Family Behind Flipping Simple
From working 7 days a week — still flat broke and bankrupt — to now being able to support our family and pay our debts...
Tim and Lee Hall and their 3 children have been through some rough times. Here, in Tim's own words, is how they finally found success.
I moved to America in 2000 from England. I came here to find the American Dream. I met and married Lee in late 2000 and the world was at our feet.
We started buying property in 2002, but we really didn’t know what we were doing and didn’t have a coach to help us. Working full-time jobs, we bought houses part-time as a hobby — trying to learn how to “flip” on our own. We bought properties based solely on guesswork or as an emotional decision.
Looking back, it was not a good way to purchase properties… but there was no one around to teach us the right way. The market was booming at that time so we did manage to make some money — even not knowing what to do.
Then the market tanked…
We were left holding a couple properties and had more bills than we knew what to do with! After about a year of working and saving as hard as we could, we just weren’t getting anywhere and the collection calls were relentless. We were drowning in debt. Like many Americans, we were working 7 days a week just trying to keep the wolves from the door. Life was unbearable and something had to give. We made the hardest decision of our lives and declared bankruptcy.
In 2011, we moved to Tallahassee to be closer to family. Lee found a good job as a bookkeeper and I was a painter (not the starving artist type.) I pressure cleaned and painted houses. As you may remember, the economy at that time was terrible; we were struggling… again.
By 2013 we were borrowing more than we made and to make matters worse, Lee had lost her job. We had 2 kids and another one on the way, I was scared. By December 2013 we were flat broke. That year our family of 5 made a whopping $20,000.
It was time to do something drastic.
We knew there were people making a good living as real estate investors. We realized if we could just learn how to flip houses as a business, that would take all the guesswork out of it. We just needed to know exactly what to do. Lee started looking into education for real estate but they were mad amounts of money. So like all good relationships we talked about it and slept on it and decided that it was out of our grasp because of the money… The next day I went to work and she borrowed the money for the down payment and signed on to a course.
We wanted to learn wholesaling first, since you don’t need any money or credit to start (and we had neither!). But even with all the investor education we just got, we had questions and no clear answers. We had to figure out a lot of steps and paperwork ourselves as it just wasn’t spelled out.
So we went to work and by the end of January 2014 we had our first wholesale deal! By the summer of 2014 we had several wholesale deals under our belts and had made $46,000! (More than double what we made ALL YEAR in 2013.) We also started our first flip and had it sold by the fall with a nice profit of $40,000. Best of all, we were able to pay back all the family loans that had kept us afloat in that terrible year of 2013!
That was 30 houses ago...
