Late last week, Jon and I took the whole team to walk-through a real P.O.S. building in Echo Park that I’m very excited to try to buy.
Here’s a representative picture:
Note the trash everywhere and the broken wall where someone stole the electrical wires to sell for drug money.
Obviously, I fell in love with it immediately.
About 20% of the time that I tell someone I fix up apartment buildings, s/he will make a joke about me being a slumlord. But anyone who reads this blog knows I buy the worst of the worst buildings (like this one) and make them amazing places to live. Sure, it’s a good living. But it’s also good for the neighborhoods in which we work.
