I’ve bought numerous houses without viewing them first.
I have flipped houses for many decades.
I have eyes and ears all over the locale and people look out for me when they see a fantastic deal. One of my friends named James got in touch because he found out a storage unit was coming up for auction. He said the storage unit had some fantastic stuff in it and he wanted to know if I wanted to bid on it. He took some pictures real quick, however I didn’t get a proper look at everything until I was sitting there in front of the storage unit that I bought for $450. I flipped on the light switch that should have turned on any overhead light inside. I flipped the switch several times and nothing happened. I phoned the front office and the manager came down to the storage locker to inspect the lights. He flipped it up and down the same as me and said yes, it wasn’t working. He had to phone a residential service electrician to repair the issue. During all that time while we waited for the residential service electrician to arrive, all I could do was use a flashlight to see as much of the room as I could. But when the electrician finally fixed the issue, I got lights and I could see everything inside the room. There were quite some things that looked expensive and my buddy was right about the fantastic deal.
