10. Some Of The Homes Are In Disrepair
Using houses on the show that only need superficial changes would be too easy, so Flipping Across America made sure to add some twists. Some of the houses on the show are in need of some very serious help. A few of them have even been left in conditions similar to what you’d see on an episode of Hoarders.
