Another House with Burst Pipes!! – Agawam Rehab

Here’s another house that we picked up from the bank with some burst pipes, just like our 84 Rhinebeck Ave house.

It seems like every spring we score a couple of these rehabs.

You all know the story… owner moves out in Fall/Early winter…. bank doesn’t get in there to winterize the pipes…. come springtime once things thaw out a little you have water running down the ceilings and walls. If the house sits for a little while you start to get mold everywhere.

Fortunately we got to this house before the water damage was too bad and any mold could set in.

Our Agawam house is a two story colonial and all the damage happened to the first floor.

We are gonna be replacing all the water damaged walls and ceilings on the first floor. Redoing all the hardwood flooring that was damaged. We will be adding a new kitchen, redoing the half bath and a whole bunch of other nice upgrades and improvements.

The exterior of this house is in great condition, the roof is newer, the windows are new, and the siding is new…. so we barely have any work to do outside.

Here are some pics of this beauty:

We got another pool with this house. We’ve filled in a number of these over the years because they were too far gone to salvage…. however this one was just installed in 2008 and seems to be in real good shape…. so I think we are finally gonna be able to save a pool here.

Another Look at some of that Damage

The bank was really motivated to move this quickly before any further damage was done by the water and before some serious mold set in. We used this to our advantage, offering a very fast closing timeline, and this helped us to get the deal done.

For those of you who live down south where it is always warm, I feel bad that you will never be able to experience the joys of frozen pipes…. and the rush that comes with making a deal on these types of homes!!! 🙂
