      handing them off to general contractors  for 30 days to rehab (cosmetics mostly) and flipping them

      Good money to be had for them.

      Prospective buyers BETTER have excellent inspectors because the "repairs" often mean masking serious problems (like painting over evidence of severe water damage), and they don't disclose anything, even though it's required in many states.
