In this House Flipper Perks Guide, we'll tell you how Perks work, how to unlock more Perks, what each Perk does, and the best Perks in the game!

Starting out in House Flipper can be a little rough -- you only have a little money, some cheap Tools, and the desire to Build the best possible houses for your customers. Perks are one of the ways that you can make your job a heck of a lot easier -- let's explore how they work.

How House Flipper Perks Work

House Flipper Perks are permanent, passive improvements to your character and their Tools. Perks can make it easier to find trash, allow you to build walls faster, and even make you more money with certain jobs!

There are seven Perk trees in total -- here's what they are and what they're related to

  1. Cleaning - Cleaning up dirt and trash and easily finding it.
  2. Painting - Painting walls.
  3. Handyman - Installing fittings, plastering walls, and placing tiles.
  4. Demolition - Destroying walls.
  5. Building - Building walls.
  6. Negotiation - Increasing the money earned from doing jobs or selling houses and reducing requirements for some jobs.
  7. Gardener - Increasing gardening speed, upgrading gardening tools, and easily finding weeds, molehills, etc.

Each Perk Tree has three Perks that you can pick from, each of which has three levels. Some Perks are more useful than others. You'll eventually be able to get all of the Perks, but making smart choices and picking the right Perks first will make your gameplay experience a lot easier.

How to Upgrade Your Perks in House Flipper

You can upgrade your Perks in House Flipper by completing the objectives listed on each respective Perk screen, filling up the progress bar, and selecting a Perk when

Upgrading your Perks won't just change the visual look of your Tools -- they'll perform better, too.
