Over the years of renovating really bad houses, people have asked me often how I go about it; buying, working through each phase, and then selling. It’s not rocket science, but it can be tricky when you’ve never done it before. Another question that people sometimes ask me goes something like, “What’s the hardest part about fixing up a place like this?” People want to know. Is it nasty bathrooms or kitchens? Is it the neighbors? Snakes? Dead animals that I’ve had to deal with? Finding contractors? Inspectors? What’s the thing… the one challenge or issue that consistently has to be overcome on all of these pig’s ears.
