NEW YORK [March 2, 2018] Real estate expert Egypt Sherrod is back to support more house-flipping newcomers in a fresh season of HGTV’s Flipping Virgins, premiering Monday, April 2, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Navigating the risky realities of the buying/selling business to reap maximum profits is no easy task for novice house flippers, but with Egypt on hand to counsel them on the tricks of the trade, they have a solid shot at success. More than 10 million viewers tuned in to watch the popular series last season.
"The world of flipping can be an emotional rollercoaster, and that is especially true for first time flippers dreaming of big time profit,” said Egypt. “Your success or failure is determined upfront by finding the right house at the right price. That's where I come in.”
In the premiere episode, Egypt will take on a classic craftsman bungalow in the bustling East Atlanta area where rookie flippers, Melody and Michelle, need help to turn out a profitable first flip. Moldy appliances, a faulty foundation and water damage are just a few obstacles the longtime friends must overcome while transforming the rundown charmer. Relying on Egypt’s expertise, guidance and a whole lot of sweat equity, they will work together to modernize the dilapidated home while preserving its classic craftsman character.
“With more than 16 years of successful flipping under my belt, I am here to hold their hand through the rocky moments and navigate them away from rookie mistakes, so they learn how to make a profitable flip every time,” added Egypt.
