Viewing thousands of homes and participating in hundreds of inspections, there are things that become familiar sights – things to look out for that could adversely affect the purchase of a home.
I showed an investor a home that I was about to list. Originally it was going to be a flip, but the owner has his hands full with about 20 other homes that they are rehabbing. When previewing this home, there were the normal checklist-thoughts of what needs to be done to get this home ready to rent or sell: Paint and carpet, rip out and rehab kitchen, new HVAC unit, restore garage from illegal conversion, etc. Before we left, I pulled back a window curtain and ah ha….
This my friends is a termite “tunnel.”
While these items may seem daunting, they are curable at a relatively reasonable expense.
