Channel 4 have commissioned Flipping Fast (w/t), a six-part property competition format from South Shore
Flipping Fast will follow six people from across the UK who think they have what it takes to make the big time as property entrepreneurs, offering them a truly life changing chance to start their own property business. The budding developers will each be given a whopping £100,000 investment to kickstart their business, competing against each other to see who can make the most profit from property in just 12 months.
The contestants will receive support and advice from the watchful eye of a property expert, but they will only get the chance to find out how their competition are doing when each property listing goes live. After 12 months the most successful property flipper will be revealed. In addition to keeping their profits, the winner gets a cash prize of the full £100,000 investment given to them at the beginning of the process.
