Property Management Philadelphia | How-To Unclog a Drain

Previously, we’ve had instructional videos on how to patch a section of drywall and how to install hardwood floors yourself.  Well, sometimes a problem comes along that isn’t so interesting or glamorous, but it still needs to be dealt with. Our property management Philadelphia team is not afraid of getting our hands (and feet, clothing, walls and floors) dirty!

So, today we bring to you a short video on unclogging a main drain pipe, when the standard bathroom plunger just won’t do the trick.

Investing in Foreclosures / REOs – Major differences

I just finished reading an article on which tried to highlight a purchase and renovation plan for REO properties. However, I felt that the author completely missed the mark and lost the opportunity to offer readers true insight into the major differences between purchasing an REO and a regular property. The bulk of my personal investment portfolio (and even my own home) is comprised of REOs, so I have some experience in this territory.

First, let’s define what an REO is. REO stands for real estate owned and is the bank’s term for a foreclosure. When purchasing an REO there are many subtle differences which you’ll uncover. Here are the major differences on the pre-closing side.

Now that you’ve closed on the property and received the keys here are your next steps. Actually, let me back up for a second. This is an REO, so there probably weren’t keys even handed to you at the closing table. Go kick the door down and then read on.

Overall, investing in REOs is not some ambiguous process. It’s fairly straight forward, and if you’ve got a good real estate agent representing you , there shouldn’t be a ton of problems. For more info on purchasing REOs contact JG Real Estate. Property Management

It’s always nice to find a property management team that holds the same high standards as we do at JG Real Estate. Well, on the other side of the country, in sunny Southern California, we have found a great property management team in Property Management.
