To handle the 203k repair work, it's best to work with a local contractor well versed in all the necessary aspects involved in finishing up your renovation. It's best to consult your lender for a list of contractors they recommend. It may also be the most suitable option as it allows for better coordination between all the parties.

*****VERY IMPORTANT!!!******

It is the law, you can put solar panels on your home, and even though HOA's can be like that annoying pimple that won't go away... HOA's ARE NOT ALLOWED TO ENFORCE PROHIBITING YOU FROM USING SOLAR ENERGY. If your HOA tried to stop you from installing solar panels on your home... they are breaking the law! Here is the Nevada Revised Statute, NRS 111.239 and a link to the NRS code verbatim straight of the Nevada Real Estate Division website.

NRS 111.239

Prohibition or restriction on use of system for obtaining solar energy on property.

1. Any covenant, restriction or condition contained in a deed, contract or other legal instrument which affects the transfer, sale or any other interest in real property that prohibits or unreasonably restricts the owner of the property from using a system for obtaining solar energy on his property is void and unenforceable.

2. For the purposes of this section, “unreasonably restricts the use of a system for obtaining solar energy” means placing a restriction or requirement on the use of such a system which significantly decreases the efficiency or performance of the system and does not allow for the use of an alternative system at a comparable cost and with comparable efficiency and performance.

I saw a program on TV last night that convinced me the streets are covered with money for those who simply buy, fix and resell real estate. IT"S ON TV! It has to be true!
The right answer to your questiong is very similar to "How easy is it to run 20 miles?"
I can do it. If you have not run 5 miles recently, it may be much more difficult, if not impossible for you to run 20 miles.
So the question that must be asked is what is the experience, knowledge, skillset, resources and budget of the speculator? There is a gigantic mountain of money to be made, unfortuneately, most of that money is pocketed by those selling the dream, NOT THE HOUSE.

Best of success to you,

Hi Ben,

Working for a homebuilder for the last 13 years and now handling the sales side, the responses below are pretty accurate. I would like to add that while yes, a homebuilder offers this item as an option it is due largely to the additional costs and engineering that are impounded with this item. When installing an access door to thje exterior of the home, there is additional work that needs to be done for the protection of the structure of the house. Normally where the placement of this door is installed there is what we call a Sheer Wall which helps the strength of the home structure and any change to that wall can cause a weakness, so there needs to be a revision to the design of that wall so that the integrity of the structure will stay intact.
I hope this information was helpful and if at any time I can be of any assistance to any questions relating to any real estate in general. please do not hesitate to contact me.
