I am not saying you should use or hire Home Depot or Loews, but I strongly suggested you contact both with your thoughts and ideas as part of your educational and planning process. I spent years as an independent Certified Kitchen (CKD) and Bath (CBD) Designer and worked for high remodelers, real estate investors that flipped properties and architects that were intelligent enough to know that they had not specialized in being good at kitchen or bath design (most architects are not!) and I was always impressed with and found clients easy to work with who had exposed themselves to Home Depot and Loews both of which usually have at least one CKD and/or CBD on their store staff. Just some food for thought along with the fact that kitchens (and to some degree bathrooms) are what sell most homes. One thing about the two big box stores, they are both very good at making any mistakes that they make right, which cannot be said for all contractors or design/built firms, which often requires court action to get due results. ... more

I'm $167,600 in repairs so far on a house that was "move in ready!" According to our realtor. This is essential stuff..we're not trying to build a mansion. We still haven't figured out how to deal with the annual 4' of ground water that rushes into the old basement that "never ever flooded before!"-previous owner. We runn two large pumps 24/7 for three months of the year during melt and spring when groundwater is very high.
It's likely we will be over $200,000 into this 'Charming turn of the century Craftsman farmhouse with enormous barn (46,000 sq' + 6 garages, machine shapes and farm out buildings.
Another $150,000 into structural integrity issues for the outbuildings that the inspector missed and the previous owners never volunteered.
I can sue the inspector but he has zero assets. I just can't bring myself to sue the previous owners as the husband passed 3 days after the sale from cancer and the widow used the cash to pay off months of expensive cancer treatments.
Sometimes you just have to hope for others to do the right thing...

Kathy Burgreen answered:
In the New York City area (including New Jersey) DO NOT CLOSE UNTIL THE TENANT HAS LEFT!! Both NY and NJ are tenant friendly which means if the tenant has not left before you close, you will have nightmare headaches afterwards and it will be too late then.

Save your sanity and insist you will DELAY the closing until the tenant has moved out PERIOD! This will put the pressure on the seller to make sure the tenant has moved out before closing. Why should you take on the responsibility of possibly doing an eviction on the tenant? I will guarantee that after closing, this tenant will come up with every excuse to stay in this rental and make your life a living nightmare. Let the seller deal with this tenant - not you.

After all, this seller is the one who wants to get rid of this home, so let the seller deal with the tenant! Expect the realtors, lawyers and your lender to be pissed off with you and to start whining, yelling and giving you the finger - all because you refuse to close on time. Tell all these morons - TOUGH and tell them you will be happy to write negative reviews all over the internet. These people need positive reviews and I will guarantee, the minute you mention you will write a negative review - they will shut their mouths. Remember, they are in a hurry to get paid which is why they want you to sign closing documents quickly.
