Best Time to Inspect a Property

When do you inspect a property you’re considering buying? I always like to go when the weather is at it’s absolute worst! Every property looks great when it’s 75 and sunny! It’s when it’s raining sideways with 30 mph winds I like to go see how the property is holding up! Are there ponds in parking lot? Tenants complaining about the roof leaking, again? Is the maintenance staff anywhere to be found?

Another good time to visit a property is Friday or Saturday night around midnight. Is there any drug or gang activity taking place? There may be a bigger problem at the property that needs attention! I always recommend getting a police report for the property to see how often and what activity is taking place there.
