Attempting a move by yourself can be overwhelming—the more planning you can do ahead of time, the better.

Especially when you’re starting out, you want to get some quick, profitable flips under your belt, and that means NOT spending hours on the intricate details of a single item.

Whether you’re a flipping furniture as a hobby, or trying to turn it into a full-time income stream, you’ll follow a similar process.
