7 Ways to Estimate Repair Costs When Buying At Real Estate Auctions

Estimating Repairs

For those unfamiliar with buying a property at tax foreclosure auctions, you may be shocked to learn that we typically get our first look at the inside of these properties AFTER we purchase them at the auction.  Laws state that tax auction properties are to be purchased as-is and sight unseen, leaving it up to us investors to budget for the repair costs  based only on the observations we make from the outside of the property or if we are lucky, a quick glimpse of the interior through a window. Since we typically don’t get a good look inside to assess the damages, we have to make smart assumptions about the condition of the interior, while still being as cautious as possible that we don’t underestimate the repair costs.

If you are considering buying an investment property at a tax foreclosure auction without the luxury of a walk-through and inspection, here are 7 strategies that will help you gain as much information as possible about the physical condition of the property and determine how much you will have to pay to complete the repairs.

Tax Deed Property Rehab Project (Introduction)

I am very excited to announce a new tax deed property rehab project I am undertaking here on investmentpropertyusa.ca. Myself and my investor partners just purchased a nice little property at the Harris County tax auction (a.k.a. sheriff sale, tax deed auction) that we are planning to rehab or, for those that prefer the term, fix and flip. I thought it would be fun to document as much of the project as I can through you tube video and blog posts and share it with you from start to finish.

The video above explains more about the property we are calling the “Pickerton” house including some of the pre-auction due diligence that we did on it, the auction details and some of the numbers that we can expect from this rehab deal. In future videos I will show you our very first walk through of the property and various stages of rehab as we turn the worst house on the block into something that someone is going to love to live in.

Here are the numbers as we know them right now. Many are just projections as we have not yet fully assessed the state of repair inside this house.
