Louisville Family Showcases Their Flipping Skills

With foreclosures up and more urban properties that need updating, the idea of flipping a house is becoming more and more common. So common, in fact, that TLC has a show entirely devoted to the idea called Flip That House.

Louisville’s own Scherer family will be highlighted in an episode due to air early next year. How did this family succeed in getting the producer’s attention?

“They fell in love with the fact that it was being flipped by a family,” Scherer said.

Don’t think “flipping” is easy. It’s entirely possible to lose money due to many different factors, so beware. But for the Scherer family, it’s about more than just making a few extra bucks.

“It brought us together as a family,” Scherer said. “It’s truly amazing what a family can do when it puts its mind to something. I never thought I would see the day my wife was cutting walls apart with a power saw or my mom framing with a nail gun.”

Sounds like fun. I’m looking forward to the broadcast!
