In this one hour special, two families go head to head in a family flip challenge. The Scherer family in Louisville Kentucky bought a small 950 square foot, 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home for $61,000. 2,500 miles across the country the Garland family is flipping a much larger 1,800 square foot, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house on two acres in rural southern Oregon. The Garland flip budget is $65,000, more than three times the Scherer flip budget of $20,000. BUT, both families have given themselves a tight eight week schedule. Under the intense pressure of flipping, which family will stick together and be able to finish on schedule, under budget, and walk away with the biggest profit margin?
