What’s Included in This Report

Receive insights from the fix and flip market

All of our surveys are delivered via email with a short summary, and are posted in our client portal for easy access. Every quarter, here’s what you can expect in the Fix and Flip Survey:

Burns + Sundae Fix and Flip Market Index

Three subindices generate the overarching Fix and Flip Market Index (FFMI). They measure current and expected flipped home sales compared to seasonal norms as well as supply conditions.

Local Market Commentary

Local fix and flip investors share candid feedback on local market conditions in addition to operational opportunities and challenges. 

Buyer Type Information

This survey contains insights into which buyer types are purchasing flipped homes, the prices flipped homes command, and the average renovation spend for the flips.

As-Repaired Value Analysis

An in-depth look at as-repaired value (ARV) by geography. ARV refers to a property’s estimated future market value after renovations. Flippers stay focused on what the home could sell for in order to maximize profitability and return on investment.

National, Regional, and Metro-Level Insights

The report provides data visuals and analysis at the macro and micro levels for an industry with little coverage.
