Premise: The housing bubble that burst in 2008 flooded the market with unsold properties. In Las Vegas, for example, thousands of homes were left abandoned and, worse yet, in need of makeovers to entice buyers. What happens to those Vegas properties now has a lot to do with Scott Yancey, a real estate investor who buys the houses in Sin City that no one else wants. ``Flipping Vegas'' follows Yancey and his team -- wife and interior designer Amie, and a bevy of project managers and real estate agents -- on their quest to renovate rundown homes and sell them for a profit.
After buying a pet-friendly home, Scott finds 17 cats still living inside, and must humanely evacuate the premises.
The searing Las Vegas climate adds to Scott's troubles after he buys a fire-damaged home and tries to stay on budget.
