Than Merrill’s name may ring a bell to you if you’re a fan of the NFL, but also if you’re a fan of home improvement television. He’s a man of talent, drive, and philanthropy who aims to make a difference in the lives of people by helping them make their own lives better. After a career-ending knee injury took him out of football, he began a real estate agency and the rest is history.
After he co-founded CT Homes LLC in 2004 and was noticed by A&E’s Flip This House, he once again became a household name and has been featured on television in addition to writing books, working with charities, and assisting with FortuneBuilders.com – a real estate education company.
We got to talk to Than about house flipping; what it takes to be successful, and what we could learn from it if we were interested in the project. It’s something that takes dedication, time, and expenses too, but the success of house flipping can be great – you truly do get out of it what you put into it.
If you’re interested in learning more about flipping houses, Fortune Builders, or the charity involvements of Than you can visit his website here and find out all you need to know. He’s also the author of some informational books on flipping homes which are full of the how-tos and the must-haves for the job.
