  1. Great post. I’d like to use that quad copter thing. You could add some cool videos of your property to a website, videos I’m sure no one else would have. Plus, one might be able to get an idea of the state of the roof and chimney, maybe even some upper floor windows, without going up there.

    • Hey Chad. Yeah – I thought about that too after the fact (those pesky details). I guess it’s not always going to be feasible for vacant houses per se… but who knows, if the stars ever align and you can tap into a neighbor’s wifi, it might just work!

    I hate to admit it, but I work pretty heavily with credit cards when I’m doing a renovation. Having just one in my wallet would definitely free up some much needed space. Maybe I will finally be able to have business cards exactly when I need one!
