  • Calling the planning department can help determine if anything is planned that will positively or negatively affect the property.

  • Whenever you are dealing with a bureaucracy (planning, zoning, building department, assessor’s office, treasury), always ask for confirmation in writing.

  • Also asking contractors that have not worked on the property can help with due diligence.
  • Why you should never pay a contractor an advance.
  • When walking a property and the owner is not allowing you to see a unit, just assume that you need to completely renovate that whole unit.
