I got a new bank owned listing full of DIY improvements. Lacking electrical service, they came up with a great way to add add outlets. They snaked wires through a hole once meant to let the warm air form a basement wood stove up to the 1st floor. They then lay-ed the wires across the floor into the room that needed multiple outlets.
For those saying "what about the trip hazard?" DO do not worry, they found an old throw rug to cover them. Now, you must be asking if this DIY job actually worked? YES, the power was on and these lines were "hot."
IN SUMMARY you never know what you will find in a bank owned home. For me, i was happy to get a new listing during these trying times. While home owners are hunkering down, the banks have some vacant listings they are looking to unload.
IN THE END the asset manager was happy I got there within an hour. Completed all my tasks, got pictures, estimates and put a value on the home.
THE BOTTOM LINE is to know how important it is that every Buyer or Seller should not just choose any agent, choose the BEST agent for the job. Having an agent that works for you is a must. Support your local businesses.
My philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.
