Become a house flipper

Become a house flipper — after my post on consulting as a side job, Marc wrote in to ask whether house flipping counts as consulting. House flippers are speculators who buy homes with the intention of selling them quickly for profit.

Professional house flippers draw from their specialized knowledge of real estate, design, home renovation and market conditions. However, in bubbly markets, amateurs often get into flipping houses and may have no expertise at all. So I wouldn’t consider most house flippers to be consultants. And, even in the case of professionals, the focus is more on delivering a finished product for an unknown buyer, so that’s not really consulting either. However, that doesn’t mean that professional house flippers couldn’t also provide consulting services or that they don’t have specialized skills.

If your generating your payments on time monthly, you might be able to call the credit card firm and ask them to lower your interest rate. Some companies will do that only if you might have been doing your payments on time every month. The other advice will be to use your income tax to cut that debt in half or any bonuses that you simply may receive throughout the year.
