Home Flipping In St Louis Hits Highest Level In 8 Years

Home flipping accounted for 8.6 percent of all the home sales in the St Louis MSA during the 1st quarter of this year according to a report released today by Attom Data Solutions.  This is an increase of  14.7% from the prior quarter when 7.5% of the homes sold were flips and is an increase of 6.2% from a year ago when 8.1% of the homes sold in St Louis were flips, according to the report.   For the purposes of this report, a “flip” was defined as a property that was sold in an arms-length sale for the second time within a 12-month period.

St Louis house flipping profit margins…

During the first quarter of 2017, the median purchase price of houses that were flipped was $75,000 and the median resale price, 158 days later on average,  was $129,400 for a gross profit margin of $54,400.  Before you get too excited though, remember this is just the gross margin between the price paid and the price resold at.  The actual net profit would be much lower as there would be costs related to the acquisition and sale of the property as well as rehab/repair costs and carrying costs, none of which is available publicly, so we can just talk about gross margins here.
