Ben H Posted April 27, 2011 Report Share Posted April 27, 2011 To get my first threating phone call of the year. Did a flip a few days ago, that was simply a polished turd. Older house, with trusses, someone decided years ago they wanted a set of attic steps. Of course they hacked up a truss to get in it, knocked out the webbing, cut the bottom chord, etc... Called it what it was, a hack job that needed to be an engineered fix, buyers didn't want the house after the inspection (not just the screwed up truss) and I get a call from the "Flipper" saying I scared these poor kids to death, I cost him the sale of a house, and "he knows all kinds of people in the Real Estate Business and he'd make sure I NEVER get another referral in this town again." The really bad part of the situation is the buyer was a wounded solider from the war, he was told by the flipper the house had all new plumbing, electrical, insulation ,etc... The only thing new was the plugs, switches, plate covers, and a few p-traps. So sad you would lie to the face of a man who just got back from a war, that allows you to peddle your shit houses to naive people. Good to know I'm finished I suppose, I guess I'll go dig ditches...[:-cry] Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
