A Baltimore Sun investigation of the Baltimore real estate industry reveals that "flipping" is a common practice. "Flipping is the purchase and quick resale of a property at a substantial profit. Flipping itself isn't illegal. It becomes illegal when documents are inflated appraisals and falsified documents are used to get a mortgage for more than a house is worth for a buyer who should not get the loan."
