@Jacob Chapman The biggest mistake is looking for "Cheap " houses that need work .
You will ALWAYS spend more than you planned
It will ALWAYS take longer than planned .
It RARELY sells for the top end of the ARV .
Your first , and second even third is like going to school , something new every day .

@Mike McCarthy hey Mike, thanks for the quick response! You see that is kind of my problem haha! MY comfort level is really high! For example if drywall is down, I see that as an opportunity to update all of the cabling (internet, power, and cable) if needed or at least you know what it is when you check it out. My wife's comfort level is.... A freshly remodeled home haha. That said she knows and is willing to compromise, but since we are inexperienced it would be best to get some outside opinions. Though I am a big DIYer for the first rehab all of the mayor things we will likely vend out to keep stress and lack of experience from stopping us from ever getting started.
Yeah I'd much rather deal with a home that has the walls down to the studs to be honest. Drywalling isn't that much of an expense and it's a selling point.
