Real estate and home renovation experts Eric and Lindsey Bennett will fix and flip more hot properties in Palm Springs, California, in a new season of HGTV’s Desert Flippers. Premiering on Tuesday, July 24, at 9PM ET/PT, the 14-episode season will follow real estate agent Eric and designer Lindsey as they renovate dilapidated homes in a popular real estate market where investment properties are tough to find. The Wisconsin natives – who escaped harsh winters to follow their dream of house flipping in SoCal – will overcome extreme heat and unique desert challenges to create dream homes with high-end amenities and desirable outdoor living areas.
As parents of three young boys, Eric and Lindsey fully embrace the carefree Palm Springs life as they balance a successful business and family. The fun-loving yet driven couple complement each other perfectly. The ever-joking Eric identifies the most promising real estate deals and sticks to the budget while Lindsey, the straight shooter, creates warm yet contemporary designs that fit the resort-like vibe unique to the area.
“Palm Springs may be in the desert, but it’s an oasis unlike any other place in the world,” said Lindsey, while Eric added, “in the desert, an indoor/outdoor lifestyle is the name of the game.”
In the premiere episode, Eric and Lindsey will take a risk on a probate sale, buying a property that has been uninhabited for years and needs a complete overhaul. The duo will design a modern kitchen with an enviable oversized island, a striking feature wall in the master bedroom and spa-like bathrooms. They also will amp up the house’s curb appeal with fresh desert landscaping and refresh the backyard’s existing pool area with outdoor seating for entertaining.
