Real Estate and Home Renovation Get a Southern Twist in HGTV's New Series "Flip or Flop Atlanta"
New York [May 18, 2017] HGTV is rolling out the newest installment in its Flip or Flop franchise - Flip or Flop Atlanta. Premiering on Thursday, July 20, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the 13-episode series follows expert flippers Ken and Anita Corsini as they transform rundown properties into charming southern homes. With Anita's real estate and design expertise and Ken's know-how as a licensed contractor, no project is too big for this reno-savvy duo in Atlanta, a market that Forbes magazine ranked among the top 10 for real estate investment.
"The success of HGTV's original Flip or Flop and Flip or Flop Vegas set the stage for Flip or Flop Atlanta," said John Feld, senior vice president of programming for HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country. "Now we will get an inside look at the profitable real estate opportunities in this booming Southeast market."
"Atlanta has some of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the country," said Anita. "We take pride in making it a little more beautiful with each house we flip."
In the premiere episode, Ken and Anita take on a bargain-priced split-level home nestled in Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood. The home has the potential for major resale value, but first the couple must reimagine the dated layout, unsightly 1970s exterior and rickety deck. Costly damage must be repaired to attract potential buyers.
"I think it's all the little details in our renovation and design that make the biggest impact," said Ken. "Things like high-end lighting, hardware and fixtures add up in the buyer's mind and help us get top dollar in the end."
