Well, that’s kind of a loaded question but I’m gonna give you two or three areas that I think are kind of depending on your budget and depending on your risk tolerance where I would look at investing.
The first place is what I call “Over the Mountains,” This kind of the Hoover, Homewood, Vestavia, Mountain Brook area.
These are the more expensive homes in Birmingham and they are south of Birmingham, so there’s like a mountain that’s just south of Birmingham.
If you’re from Colorado or somewhere that actually has mountains this is what we call it. And south of the mountain is what we call Over the Mountain. That’s where the big more expensive homes are.
The second place I would focus on to flip houses in Birmingham AL is the northeastern side of town. That’s the Center Point, Roebuck, Huffman area.
These are where you can get really good deals and there’s still a lot of retail buyers. So you can buy a house, it’s a lot more reasonably priced and you can get a house there.
The third place I would look to flip houses in Birmingham AL is probably a little bit less known area. It is Adamsville and Forestdale. I think that there are some really good deals here.
There’s not as much density of houses there but you still have a ton of retail buyers and ton of people that are looking for houses. So this is a good place to fix and flip a house.
That’s it. Matthew Whitaker, “Questions Owners Ask.” I hope this is helpful. I’m with gkhouses.
Matthew is the CEO of Evernest. He is a student of the book Good to Great and is passionate about building the best property management company on the planet (and maybe even the universe if Elon Musk will hurry up). You can usually find Matthew at the baseball field with his son, at a dance recital with his daughter, or at his favorite restaurant with his wife, when he’s not in the office. And if you can’t find him in any of those places, it probably means he’s traveling.
