DESCRIPTION: (from A&E's web site, September 2008) Flipping houses is the most tried-and-true way to make a fortune in real estate, but with the current slump in the housing market, the casts of A&E Network's series FLIP THIS HOUSE are facing hard truths and real panic as they return for a 4th Season. FLIP THIS HOUSE will once again showcase returning casts in San Antonio and New Haven and brand new casts in Atlanta and Los Angeles as they flip houses for profit - buying, refurbishing, and re-selling properties — making lots of mischief and money along the way. Tackling one of the most exciting aspects of today's high-stakes real estate market — the transformation of an eyesore into a profit-making beauty — A&E's hour-long "docu-soap" follows the travails of real-estate investors in New Haven, CT, Los Angeles, CA, San Antonio, TX, and Atlanta GA, — where each boasts a team of characters that buys homes, renovates them in arecord time, then flips them for a profit. It sounds simple, but sparks fly and tempers are high before the fixer-uppers are ready to go back on the market.
