Premise: Tarek and Christina El Moussa lead dizzying professional lives. After finding success as real estate agents and then experiencing the drastic downside of the housing market, the Californians switched career gears: They now buy distressed properties -- foreclosures, short sales and bank-owned homes -- remodel them and sell them at a profit. At least, that's the way it's supposed to work. ``Flip or Flop'' tracks the El Moussas' roller-coaster journey in each episode, beginning with a cash purchase at auction of a home -- often sight unseen -- and the fix-it-up process, to the nail-biting wait to find a buyer.
Tarek and Christina get a lead on a mid-century house in La Habra, California, that is towards the top of a hill; however, the margin of profit on this home is tight.
Tarek and Christina get a lead on a home in Garden Grove, California, that is in need of a major makeover; the house is small and needs a lot of work but it does have a large yard where they could add an extra bathroom or bedroom.
