DIY First Time Flippers – Casting Call

DIY Channel is currently casting for seasons 7 & 8 of First Time Flippers.  They’re looking for new flippers with big personalities.  Do you have a customer or client who fits this description?  If so, they could become real stars!

Here’s the scoop:

Any new flippers who are doing some of the work themselves and have little to no experience are encourage to apply to First Time Flippers.  They welcome all submissions but here are some guidelines when considering who would have a good change at getting on the show:

  1. Team of two or three new flippers with big personalities!
  2. Ages 18-45
  3. Completely new to renovation or have done some work but are not super experienced.  No professional contractors, HVAC, inpspectors, etc.  It is very much about the learning process being caught on camera.
  4. No flips that will take longer than 6 months.

This is very much coordinated with the flippers’ schedules and usually films during the week.  Each team selected for the show is compensated with $5000.  Throughout the renovation, they can of course have help from contractors and hire out if necessary, they just wouldn’t be featured on camera.  It’s all about the flipping partners!

Casting is done on a rolling basis and First Time Flippers is always accepting new application.  The ideal time for flippers to apply is when they have an accepted offer or are under contact and about to close on a home.  If they’ve recently closed, they can still be consider if they have not started any renovation work yet.

Have flippers who qualify?  Have them apply!
