Last year was the strongest year yet for home flippers, with gains on flips in 2015 hitting $102,400 per flip on average, up from $98,500 in 2014 and significantly higher than the peak of $90,900 during the last housing boom, according to a report from real estate brokerage Redfin.
Interestingly enough, despite the huge gains in flipping homes, the overall amount of houses flipped was relatively low.
In 2015, Redfin estimated 43,000 homes were flipped in 28 markets, falling well below 2005's peak volume of 95,000 homes.
