Interested in buying Renton investment properties? The Gary McNinch Team can help you even when you run into unforeseen circumstances. Recently I accompanied one of my investor clients to the Trustee Salel/Auction in downtown Seattle. The goal at these auctions is always to buy a house low thus enabling the purchaser to repair, remodel and otherwise “fix-up” affordably prior to putting the home on the market for resale. Weather was great that day which is a plus as the auctions are held outdoors. Several people were bidding for the same house as my investor and about 15 others were watching. They ultimately dropped out and my investor won the bid.
Following the auction, the first order of business (after the Trustee documents were signed and the money exchanged hands) was to secure the home. Upon entry to this abandoned home we find..... (DRUM ROLL please) ......a marijuana grow operation!! Full blown, complete with grow lights, watering apparatus, ceiling high stacks of pots, a few dead plants and about 40+ plants approximately 18” high and thriving. Obviously the source of someone’s “side” income! My investor’s first question, “what do we do now?” The retired WSP Sergeant in me kicks in and we call the Renton Police Department. No booby traps, no one in the house. Our good local boys in blue responded as well as some members of the drug team. They did their job, took care of the grow operation and left my investor and I to finish securing the home until he is ready to begin renovation. At that point I initiated the “hey honey, Dave bought a grow house,” phone call to my wife to tell her about my day.
It’s all in a day’s work for the Gary's real estate team. Our goal is always to help you get the most for your money whether it be an investment home to fix or flip, your perfect dream home to buy or to sell your home that you have lived in for years and years. Kinda fun to be back in the old law enforcement stuff. And thank you again to the Renton Police.
