A good electrician -( Mike Airhart from Airhart Electric 397-3415) will be able to tell you how to bring this to code. He's terrific to work with, and will give you an honest, cost-effective solution. I use him almost exclusively for my clients.
The mention of FHA loans is important. To bring the house up to the correct standards, you open the floodgates for more people to be able to bid on the home. If you need any additional advice, feel free to give me a call.................Jean Allard, Keystone Real Estate Group, Inc. (401) 783-1699.
In my opinion, in this current market, "AS IS" is the best way to go. You cannot anticipate what doing all those repairs will net you.
The market right now is not inviting to someone looking for "move in " condition, but rather to investors. unless it is in a Superior location.
You might want to get some quotes and use them in your marketing. Good luck
Please feel free to call us to speak in detail about this matter.

I have seen several of my clients encapsulate asbestos heating pipes themselves in one afternoon for $200-$300.00.
Electrically, if all you need is an upgrade to 100 amp circuit breakers I have seen several clients perform this kind of upgrade for less than 1/10th of the quote you mentioned.
Obtain bids from multiple contractors and let them know it. Use competition to your benefit to get the best price and service for whatever work you choose to do.
If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to call.

With my experience in selling probate, trust and estates, my recommendation is to price the house aggressively and "as is". There are buyers who are willing to make the updates, as long as the property is priced correctly.
Please feel free to give me a call to get a market analysis of the property. Please do not hesitate to contact me with further questions.
