New York [Nov. 29, 2018] Although their romantic relationship went cold years ago, DeRon Jenkins and Page Turner’s home renovation business continues to heat up in season two of HGTV’s Flip or Flop Nashville. In the new 12-episode season, premiering on Thursday, Jan. 3, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, DeRon, a licensed contractor, and Page, a seasoned real estate agent, aren’t afraid to take big real estate risks. Costly fire damage, major foundation issues and surprise infestations are just a few of the pitfalls they overcome to overhaul homes and turn a profit in the highly competitive Music City real estate market.
This season, narrowing profit margins force DeRon and Page out of their comfort zones and into unknown neighborhoods to find better properties that promise bigger rewards. At times, their expertise and emotions are stretched so thin that tensions flare as they face the potential money pits. In the premiere episode, Page has her heart set on a rundown North Nashville cottage, but first she’ll have to convince DeRon that they can fix the scary half-completed reno in the basement.
“I have really high hopes for this house, especially if we snag it for a low asking price,” said Page. “It’s a promising investment and I can’t pass it up.”
“Even if we get a deal, Page and I still have to renovate the house and make money,” added DeRon. “Our biggest challenge is always staying on budget.”
If they agree to purchase the property, the duo must face major and costly repairs to the basement and shoddy flooring so they can expand the living space and make maximum profit. Throughout the season, DeRon and Page are often shocked by the state of the homes they buy, sometimes sight unseen. Each project brings out strong reactions when they realize the renovation challenges ahead.
“I don’t like the deep breath you just took, Page,” said DeRon. “It was a big sigh. What kind of surprise am I walking into?”
