Rains and Leaks

Investment House Search Update

Despite the debacle last month, my wife and I are back to beating the bushes looking for our next “dream” fixer-upper house. Our plan is to find another one that we can live in while we repair it. That has worked out pretty well on the one we are living in now.

Of course, if a great deal for a regular rental pops up, we’d probably grab that too.

Rains = Leaks

We got some heavy rain Saturday. I received a call from a tenant Saturday night. She reported three leaks in her house. I knew it was time to re-coat the roof last spring, but I thought it would hold out throught one more rainy season. I was wrong.

So, flat roofs being what they are, the roof has to be dry before it can be patched. And, there has to be no threat of rain, or the coating will just wash off again. Been there, done that.

There is a 30% chance of rain today, but for the rest of the week the forecast is 0%. Tomorrow ought to be a good day to take care of it.

    Caution kaufman & broad is the most horrible company that I have ever had dealings with. My community Willowbrook from Bradenton, FL has issues with collapsing balconies and kaufman & broad has been very dishonest.
