Flip or Flop: Exploring Every Filming Location of the HGTV Show

Tarek El Moussa and Christina Anstead have been successfully flipping houses for a decade now. The HGTV reality stars are an immensely talented pair of realtors. Their popular home rehab show ‘Flip or Flop’ follows the two as they buy dilapidated, distressed houses and turn them into chic new personal spaces that any home buyer will drool over. The show’s charm comes from Tarek and Christina’s ability to turn even the rattiest structures in the worst of conditions into beautiful and soothing havens.

The great thing about the former couple is that they can work together still in harmony after their divorce. They may not have worked out as a romantic couple, but the two still make an awesome team, a complete force to reckon with in the highly competitive world of house flipping. On the show, Christina is mostly in charge of the interior design, while Tarek handles the demolition and reconstruction. Curious to know where they film ‘Flip or Flop’?
