Now that we are back doing some rehabing for our out-of-state investors I have become more critical about the condition of the rehabs I inspect.
When a rehab is complete it should look complete. Anyone that presents their work for sale (all of ours are rentals) should be proud to walk any prospective buyer through the property. I don't understand the lack of pride in the completed work.
The homes in these pictures all had offers and I was doing the Home Inspection for the prospective buyer.
The blue line isn't decorative, it is painters tape.
If your trying to sell you don't leave this type of condition.
Today's market is one that demands you have an edge on every comparable house on the market. The above houses will sell or rent slower than ones that have been completed with pride.
