Flipping Out

BRAVO TV did it again. They created a new truly must see tv show with a cast of zanies that you will adore. The new show is called Flipping Out and it is the saga of a real estate professional who buys houses, re-styles them, and flips them for a profit. The difference between this show and other similar shows about house flippers is that the "star" is quite mad. In a good way. His name is Jeff Lewis and he comes across as vain, maniacal, egocentric, glib,lonely, caring, self-absorbed, funny, and sexy. He buys houses with "potential" and gives them sex appeal. His sense of style is right on.

I mention the show here because it is fun to watch and it shows the risks one takes when a flip is undertaken. Especially in the current real estate market. Granted Beverly Hills real estate is not the same as Key West. But the risks are the same only with more zeros. Watch it on Bravo TV on Tuesdays.

I first read about Key West in a magazine called "After Dark" sometime in the mid 1970's. But it wasn't until March 1984 that I made my first visit to the island that would become my home. I had two weeks for a vacation and reserved a room at Colours Guesthouse (now Marrero's Guest House) for one week. I thought that if I didn't like Key West, I could always go back to Miami or Ft. Lauderdale for the rest of my trip. But after a couple of days in Key West, that was no longer a consideration. But when I wanted to extend my stay for the extra week I found there was no room at the inn. The guesthouse owner did find me a room at LaTeDa, the infamous guesthouse/restaurant. That's a story I'll write another day. But those two weeks in Key West gave me the realization that I had found Paradise. Key West has been my home since 1993 and my only regret is that it took me so long to get here. I am a full time Realtor at Preferred Properties CRI. Let me help you find your new home or business in Paradise. Living in Paradise is not a slogan, it's a way of life.
