Foreclosure in 48235>Question Details

Judi Moresi, Home Buyer in Detroit, MI

Is there anyone who could inspect foreclosure properties for me in Detroit 48235?

Asked by Judi Moresi, Detroit, MI Wed Mar 3, 2010

I live in Australia & want to buy a couple of investment properties in good areas in Detroit. I have seen plenty between $10000 - $20000 that I love, but am not game to put in an offer without knowing if they need any repairs etc. Perhaps a retired builder that could do with a bit of pocket money & the time to do it, may be interested.

Hi Brian, I am an overseas investor looking to buy in Detroit MI. Have done some homework online but would like to establish myself with someone who knows Detroit. There are certain pockets of Detroit that I would avoid ( results of my homework on line ) and certainly interested in wholesale buying with very little rehab work to be done to the investment.
Can you assist?

Please contact me at
and I will email you and we can exchange contact information.
I can find you some houses that dont need any work.
I will add the rehab cost into your total purchase price so that you will know the numbers before you even get into the property.
I will explain more.
Its simple enough I will do everything you just sit back and decide what deals you like.
I wont find you a house that is gutted and stripped of everything.
I also might be able to get you special loans on these properties that will give you some cash in your pocket and also be able to get some tax write offs.
If your interested please contact me ASAP
I am getting so busy networking and meeting people that I only have time to work with serious buyers and sellers!!

If you are not working with an agent already, I could offer my services either to inspect potential properties and evaluate areas, repairs, along with photos. Or.... our group could help identify properties for acquisition and help with every aspect from rehab to tenant placement & property management. We also have true "turn-key" houses available already rehabbed and with tenants in place starting at 35K. Feel free to contact me anytime.

I would recommend that you choose an inspector from that is affilliated with a national home inspection organization such as the National Association of Certified Home Inspectors http://( or the American Society of Home Inspectors http://( On both sites, you can search for inspectors in the area in which you are interested.

Hi Judi,
Are you working with an agent? If not contact me through my profile, I have a few contractors that I use to do repairs and inspections. Lots of good deals here.

As an investor in Detroit properties, let me tell you...they all need work. I would be happy to recommend a few great agents, contractors and property managers in the area. Typically, the houses have had the copper plumbing, heating and cooling units, etc ripped out. Basically, anything of value is usually missing.
