Recently I won two houses in a tax sale.

One of the basements needs to be completely redone.
There are no appliances.
The furnace and AC and hotwater tank need to be replaced/are not up to code times 2.
Lots of Garbage throughout.
Carpet in a bathroom ewwww.
Cigarette smoke and lots of it.
Classy bedsheet curtains.
The plumbing froze and needs a lot of work.

Good News is I still got a good deal and will make money, but only because I did not pay anywhere near market price.

I got one decent kitchen, with a couple good bathrooms.
I like the town a lot, the people are friendly and helpful.
I also got a bonus truck with no VIN number and a lot of scrap metal in the garage.

I managed to turn the electricity, gas and water on in the house.

It was fun, and got me out of my comfort zone. Possibly the worst part, was when the city turned on the water and I took a cold, long shower in a crawl space, which quickly became a mud pit, and I had to solder in a new main valve while the City waited outside (No Pressure) I was victorious at the end, but I prefer to keep myself and my running shoes dry and not caked in mud.
