    What’s Tarek El Moussa Up To? 7 SoCal Properties Recently Sold by the HGTV Star

    Noel Vasquez/Getty Images,

    There’s a reason why Tarek El Moussa is a staple of HGTV programming. The guy knows how to flip houses.

    Even when the cameras are off, he remains busy all over Southern California on a variety of projects. We checked out property records and the “Flip or Flop” star currently owns eight properties in SoCal that have yet to go on the market.

    When you add the seven successful flips we spotted below, the HGTV personality is well into the double digits on personal projects in 2020.

    In just the past couple of months, El Moussa has flipped millions of dollars in real estate. Each of the seven homes below are move-in ready and feature signature  touches like custom patterned tile work, distressed laminated floors, new bathrooms, and new backyard landscaping.

    Have a look at these lucky seven houses El Moussa and his crew have sold in just the past few months. They range in price from the mid-six figures to the low sevens. Whatever the price, you can see how these flips were done by the ultimate pro.

    Downey dream: El Moussa bought this three-bedroom in August of this year and spent three months bringing it back to life.

There’s also a new bathroom and roof.

    Outside, the yard has been fully landscaped with grass and a large concrete patio.

    His quick handiwork paid off—the home is pending sale after just two weeks on the market.

    Purchase price: $950,000
    Flipped for $1,500,000
    Vision in Valley Village: The deal for this Spanish-style home just closed last week. And despite El Moussa’s seemingly golden touch, this home lingered on the market after it was listed in late July for $1.65 million. The price was reduced a few times before a buyer finally bit.

    El Moussa bought the three-bedroom house in November 2019. He updated both the main home and the detached guesthouse. The charming home now boasts beamed ceilings, herringbone-patterned wood floors, high-end lighting fixtures, a new kitchen, and custom-tiled bathrooms.

    Midcentury moneymaker: This home was sold within a month for way over its original asking price of $728,000. El Moussa bought the four-bedroom home in late May and wasted no time on a magnificent makeover.

    He gave the 1955 home a cheery, midcentury modern makeover with new flooring, a new kitchen, new bathrooms, and a newly landscaped backyard with concrete patio.

    The sale for 7% above the asking price suggests the flipping master sparked a bidding war.
