David Clabeaux – Many Reasons to Love Flipping Houses

One of the many reasons I love flipping houses is that I get to spend more time with my family. In fact, we make a family event out of it.

Our 4 year old son Chase loves going to check out the “construction site” with us regularly.

“Daddy, can we go to the construction site today?”

“Sure thing Buddy!  Don’t forget to bring your construction hat and jacket!”

He is very proud of his yellow constuction helmet and bright orange construction worker vest ; )


Even at just 4 years old, he loves seeing the progress and changes each week as our contractors make improvements to the properties.

And Chase is great with a nail gun! (Just kidding)

It is so fun seeing how excited he gets each time we take him to a property.

And my wife is great with making design decisions.  She is good at picking out the right light fixtures and tile choices for the kitchens and bathrooms.

If is fun working on projects together as a family.  It allows us to spend more time together.

It also feels great to show my son that one day he too can work for himself

My wife and I decided a long time ago that we wanted to use our house flips to give back.

For example, we are donating a percentage of the profits from a recent project to the Wounded Warriors Project.

And we will use another project that is almost complete to help St Jude’s  Research Hospital. I am sharing this with you because I want you to do the same thing when you flip a house.

It may sound corny, and you might  disagree, but my wife and I truly believe  that donating a portion of the profits of  each project to charity is good karma.  We believe that it helps ensure that the project will be successful.

If you decided to flip a house, who would you choose to help?  What charity or  charities would you align your project with?

If you have been talking about flipping a house but have never pulled the trigger, this could be the nudge you need. I cannot express in words how much more important a project becomes when I know that the profits will help sick children get better or help a wounded veteran return to normal life.

It makes an already fun job become infinitely rewarding.
