Sorry for the lack of updates this week. I have been really busy trying to hold two possible purchases together. One of them fell apart for sure, but it looks like we are going to be able to make the second one work. It is a little bit different then our normal stuff.
House #18 is finished. It was actually finished last Friday, but on Monday when we went to the house we realized someone had stolen our brand new carpet! That was a first, someone actually pulled the installed carpet our and took it. We filed a police report and they actually dusted for fingerprints. We suspected the neighbors, as they always where outside sitting in their front lawn, up to trouble. But we couldn’t really do much.
On Tuesday, one of our appraisers was visiting the property and he called me and said that he saw a bunch of old carpet in the neighbors trash. Are people that crazy? So we called the police again and asked them to come back. They sat all four of the neighbors on the curb while they inspected the house looking for our carpet.
Well, it turns out, much to our embarrassment the neighbors installed new hard-wood floors in their house. So now we have angry neighbors and a vacant house. I think we will be lucky if we don’t get broken into again! My partner went over yesterday and apologized and offered them a small gift card, so we are hoping that is enough.
