I got a call tonight about a house that finally made it through forclosure and is now at the realator. It is in the area that we plan to move, a little closer to the MIL (1/4 mile) then hoped, but she's nice so maybe it won't be so bad. I'll give the run down first and then ask for advice on what to check for when I do my walk through tomorrow morning. 10 Acres, 30x40 pole barn that held horses (no end doors and one piece of tin needs to be replaced), 24x24 pole barn/garage (older but in decent shape), old mobile home which will need to be removed, house looks like an older double-wide with an addition on the back that looks to have two bedrooms and a family room. Rumor has it that the roof leaked, but it looks like there is a new one on. It looks like the old clay tile type out in Cali, but it is a steel/tin type. From the outside, it looks like I will have to replace the carpet/walls in the original part. They had someone come in and put anit-freeze in the pipes, so hopefully nothing cracked over winter. My major concern is going to be the heating. I can see a wood stove in the new family room, but I don't know if that is the only way they heated the place, or if they ran ducts out to the addition. It is in Mid-Michigan and the land is going for about 2-3K an acre. The asking price is 84,900.00 so I have to figure out what it will cost to fix up and try to get a starting price. **Is there anything special I should be looking for when I walk through? How much do they normally mark up a repo so I can get an idea of where to start negotiating? Any advice or comments are greatly appreciated!!!!!
