Flipping Foundations with Heather & Nathan from HGTV Canada’s Hoarder House Flippers
In this episode we chat about what to look for when buying a flip, what to avoid, and designing for potential buyers. We also have a little fun talking about the joys of working with family.
Hoarder House Flippers airs Thursday at 7 p.m. CST on HGTV Canada
Seeing potential property value covered by years of clutter, trash, and neglect, these intrepid flippers turn dilapidated properties into desirable homes. Each episode is helmed by one of three sets of renovators, hailing from Ontario, Quebec, and Manitoba – each with their own unique style and personality. The series premiere features Ontario couple Ryan and Kiki trimming back the mess of an overgrown ranch-style house; followed by Quebec brothers Mactar, Issa, and Khadim in the second episode, who discover their cheap flip is going to cost big bucks; then Manitoba’s Heather and Nathan transform their newly purchased eyesore in the third episode.

This requires having a strong and comprehensive understanding of the issues facing the community, as well as a commitment to a spirit of open communication and collaboration.
