    I agree with you about "buyer beware" of the random rehab. Some are legit but do your due diligence.

    As for not getting $1200 for market rate. I live in WGP and myself and several neighbors are getting $1200 for market rate tenants. Please note, we all have very nice and modern apartments and you might have to hold out a while longer but with a nice property, you can get it.

    In the past, I've taken less for a good market rate tenant too. And I still would take a solid $800/mo tenant vs. a questionable $1200/mo. tenant.

    Most landlords on the West side have gotten hip to the horrible crop of potential tenants out here. Most are now screening hard, holding out and taking less. But it pays off in the long run. Less problems.

    @tiredtiredtired I hate to break it to you but I've seen plenty of permitted work by contractors go horribly wrong as well. Even worse in many cases.

    Regardless the easy way to solve this is simply do a contingency clause in your offer contract for an inspection. Be sure to bring in your own well researched person/firm (not one the broker recommends)

    Besides nobody selling a home that is *not* a new home builder is going to offer/underwrite a warranty. This would be like buying a used car via private party with a warranty that wasn't manufacturer.

    Do the math on a total tear down/rebuild - this is typically going for around $120/sqft - meaning you could rehab at least 2-3x over. The only time this doesn't make sense is if the building is not structurally sound or takes up a large footprint where you could build 2-3 buildings and profit from a density expansion.

    That said, I'd be willing to wager that the closing price on these properties is in the ballpark of $20k of asking.
