My latest flip just went on the market last Friday. Have had two showings, two more tonight and open house Saturday.

I go by today to tidy things up, and my F#%*}!|<*#ing stove is gone.

House was locked up tight. I can’t prove anything, but I think someone from a showing left a door unlocked so they could come back later to grab it.

The kicker:
It’s a special downdraft unit, $3700 (!).
I got a smoking deal on it at the sears outlet, paid $1300 for it...but I can’t replace it for that because it was a one-off deal.

It was missing about $500 in parts, which I’ll now return. So whoever stole it will soon realize it’s worthless to them.

I built the damned island around a downdraft unit. Now I get to install an overhead range hood so I’ll pass inspection, and I’ll credit the buyer for a normal stove. And close-up the underfloor vent

Ok I’m done venting...here’s the house if anyone is interested in seeing it.
Was an absolute disaster when I bought it.

Your agent should have a list of everyone that showed it - and THEY should have a list of everyone they showed it TO.

He does, and he’s reaching out to them.

It’ll be tough to prove anything, unfortunately.

I would also recommend Installing a Ring Camera. We have the door bell & its worth the price.

Moving forward I’m gonna install something like SimpliSafe at my flips.
They require internet access (like Ring) but hopefully it’ll be a deterrent.

At the very least I’ll have video of my stuff getting stolen...not that the cops are gonna be able to do much about it.

I know folks who’ve caught thieves red-handed on video, clear shot of their face and everything, and the cops basically shrugged their shoulders.

Aww man, i hate hearing stuff like this.
Hope your flip is still profitable. Should be @ $279k

It went a bit sideways, and should have been on the market before the new year... but I’ll make some coin on it.
