Great school area. Below market price home on sale.
low 200s 3 bedroom , ingorund pool. low 1970s build.

Owner is in jail when i googled the home address. For drug possession and owning hand guns. Apparently the neighbors complained that led to his arrest.

Will you buy this home?

What must you be aware of?

My big concern would be the type of drugs. If he was cooking meth in the house, it could have toxic chemical residues.

My other concern might be some of his old druggie buddies who didn't know he's in jail stopping by.

1 lbs of marijuana, Percocet pills and some powdered cocaine.
Few hundred ammunitions.

Yeah, I thought of that to be prepared for visits by his thug friends LOL.

Will make sure the home is evacuated and no one lives there before signing the contract.

And you know he's got cash hidden in the walls or floors. When he gets out he's coming to get his $$$.

Seriously, short sale/foreclosures are such a pain. It's better to buy the home when the bank has obtained full possession. You pay a little more but the headaches are much less.

if this is a good home and you like it, I would go for it. This guy wont be back. Drug dealers move around all the time. I would not be scared either. He wont be back, he will get out and set up shop somewhere new.

i agree. I doubt the guy will return. Especially if he knows that the neighbors are eyeing the place and what happens there. If you like the house, buy it, and make it a home.
