For years I have studied, read, examined, and tried to prepare myself to rehab, its what I always wanted to do. For the first couple I knew I would have to do alot of the work myself, its mostly cosmetic, I am having the roof done by a contractor, putting in new cabinets, flooring through out and good landscaping. I did all the tear out myself, and am within budget so far. Its just that at this point the tear out is done, the roof is halfway done, and the place seems worse than when I got it, and I feel worried and discouraged. Is this normal? And for your information, it was a REO, the bank was asking 45k, I got it for 36k, estimated 10-12k in rehab, ARV is 70k. Thanks in advance, and this place seems way more friendly than my other forum.
