Learn how to fully explain what you do and why you want to buy their home even if it is in bad shape. They may be very skeptical of you, especially for that reason. Anticipate any objections they may have because your proposal seems too good to be true. Be able to win their confidence. If you have a partner or a friend, practice your techniques on them. When you have finally mastered this, then you will be ready to actually go out and do it. There is almost an art to flipping houses that you CAN learn to do the right way and be successful.
