You get additional 10 houses to renovate in this DLC, and a new place called Sunset Bay. You are also introduced to 2 new people aka your hosts on the ”TV” in the game: a woman named Greta and a man named Oliver. You get to choose between Greta’s and Oliver’s opinions in each house around 1-3 times. They both give you some advice and you have to pick 1 and complete the job as they suggested you to.


PRICE: 12,49€

Garden Flipper DLC allows you to not only change the inside of the house but to change the outside of the house as well. From deleting bushes to cutting down trees, mowing the lawn, making ponds, creating a garden to even building a pool, and so on. When you finish creating your garden you can also apply it in a competition to get a good rating and with that get up to 50% higher payment after selling the house. Of course, you get 3 new houses, 600 unique items, more than 250 plants, and 8 brand-new mechanics.



PRICE: 12,49€

With Luxury Flipper you get 12 new jobs (11 houses and 1 yacht). The name basically already tells you what it’s all about. It’s about… RICH people in need of renovation for their big rich-looking houses. You meet 12 new people who have their own requests for the renovation which you have to follow. They give you a few options, and you can choose what you like most but still connected with their taste. Houses are much bigger than the ones from the basic gameplay which takes more time to do. But then again.. you get paid well.



1. Pets DLC – price currently unknown
Pets DLC is supposedly getting released on May 12, 2022. In the DLC you are able to adopt different pets (cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters, turtles, and even lizards), which you feed and take care of. There are also some new mechanics in the game, such as painting ceilings and creating an attic and additional 700 new items. I don’t know how many new houses/ properties you get in the DLC but I might write an update on that.

2. Farm DLC – price currently unknown
Farming DLC is exactly what the name already tells you it is. The release date of the DLC is still unknown but it’s supposedly coming out at the end of 2022 or the beginning of 2023. There is not that much known about the DLC except the fact that you become a farmer. There are also some new additions to the game such as house expansion (you can build additional rooms in/next to the house not just move walls), fixing roofs, and overall just …farming, owning farm animals, and planting fruits and veggies.


Order Your Jobs

Ignore what the game tells you to do first and instead complete jobs in this order to have the least hassle.

– Pick up Trash
– Remove/Sell Objects
– Clean
– Modify Walls
– Plaster Walls
– Paint/Tile/Carpet
– Mount Devices
– Place furniture

Check Your Mini-Map

Can’t find that pesky device that needs mounting? Well good news, it’s red on your mini-map which can save you a lot of time in hunting it down. Things you’ve already mounted appear in green. Trash also displays on your map as black grey objects and if you’ve upgraded your cleaning perks the dirt will show up as black splotches. Walls that need to be knocked down will also be marked as red on the map. Using your map to locate these objectives in both Email Jobs and House Flipping can make the time it takes to clear these objectives much faster.

Use Your Perks

Use your Perks as soon as you earn them. Anything that makes you more efficient will help you unlock more perks quicker so there’s little point holding on to them for extended periods of time. Definitely grab the ‘penetrating vision’ perk to see all the dirt in the mini-map and the ‘You won’t waste paint on an already painted wall’ to make yourself more efficient and be able to go back and check which space on the wall was left unpainted.If you’re not sure what to upgrade first, check out our Things to do First Page.

Sell Unused Paint and Tiles

Use your sell tools to sell the paint buckets and leftover tiles. This won’t be available in all modes if the sell tool can’t be brought up but you’ll get a decent amount of your money back for doing this when you can.

Renovate With a Buyer In Mind

If you haven’t unlocked them yourself yet, have a look at our Buyer Profiles to get an idea of what different buyers are looking for. Renovating to these briefs will net you the most money and help give you some direction if you’re not too sure what to do with a house. The happier your buyer is the more money you get.

Always Check for Hidden Rooms

In certain houses that you buy to renovate there are hidden rooms that have usually paintings inside that are worth a fortune. So keep a close eye on the mini-map to see if any room is completely closed off with no door/exit because it might be hiding something.

GLOBAL ACHIEVEMENTS – basic, apocalypse

Like every other game on steam, House Flipper has achievements as well. You can complete all the achievements only if you buy all the DLCs because some of them are impossible to complete without the DLCs.
There are 61 achievements in the game ( 11 from the luxury flipper, 12 from the garden flipper, 11 from the HGTV flipper, 3 from the apocalypse flipper, and 24 from the basic gameplay).
They are very easy to complete but here is how to complete each and every one:

“Finish first order.”
This one is pretty self-explanatory. You only need to finish your finish order.

“Fully complete every order”
Earned by having every order at 100%. May redo orders to achieve this.

“Complete order below 1min”[/b]

“Sell 50 houses.”
When it comes to selling houses, remember that you can sell the houses in the same states you found them in. There is no need to renovate them for this achievement. If you want to speed up the process a little more, you can press “Esc” during a sale to speed up the procedure.

“Negotiate for at least 50, 000 euro and win.”
Note: you cannot earn this achievement if you do not have your currency set to “Euros”. This can be done from the in-game Settings > General section at any time.
In order to earn this achievement, you will first want to get the Price Negotiator perk. The “Alone Home” house is an easy target for this achievement. Depending on your skill levels, the amount of work you will have to put in will differ.
