Local real estate market: It helps to carry a gun
So says the pistol-toting host of the new real estate reality TV show, "Flipping Vegas."
The show is “very Vegas,” says Yancey, describing Flipping Vegas (Saturdays at noon) as the “PG-13 of reality home shows.” His friends said he needed his own show after hearing his tales of entering homes, gun in hand, to check on his properties. “This is the Wild West, and I’m the cowboy. I think this show does kind of show that,” he says. “It truly shows the adventure and the reality of the ups and downs. Some things, I admit, I cringe and think, ‘Oh, my mom’s going to see that.’ But you know, it’s real.” Yancey got involved in flipping after business in land development slowed down. He was with his wife in a coffee shop where he overheard someone talking about real estate prices, and realized “it was like shooting fish in a barrel.”
