"I love these guys that flip houses ..."
I could not agree more. The frantic mindset of these poseurs, who fancied themselves real estate mavens, is legend.
They go into the proposition expecting to make a few cosmetic changes in a few days, then turn around and sell within the first month - at a substantial profit.
During the sell, they love to claim all manner of improvements. Hard as it is to believe, they actually make realtors look ethical.
Unfortunately, these hustlers are not above playing with the electric. For us, this means we will be finding all manner of silliness (and dangers) as we go to repair their 'upgrades.'
