17594 Ohio St.
One of our first properties we bought was on Ohio St, in the up and coming Bagley Neighborhood in Detroit, south of 7 mile.
The house had many issues, the house was sitting vacant, and had water that was continuing to leak through the home due to a roof leak and no downspouts to get the water away. The sub-flooring was starting to bubble up due to evaporation from water leaking into the basement. The seller needed to sell his home before this issue continued to devalue his home, and he could move on with his life. We happily stepped in to make sure that he got a fair cash offer on his property and were able to close in 2 weeks.
Eventually we got it fixed up. Here are the results:
We now have a cash-flowing rental in a great area of Detroit. In future homes I definitely will be vetting my contractor better. This job took over 5 months, and we have been having issues ever since with plumbing and boiler issues. Hopefully we are out of the woods with those issues.
