Lessons learned? Challenges?

Because I had been watching the market and knew the numbers I was able to move quickly on this deal. However, if I had crawled all the way through the crawl space, it would have scared me out of buying. But after having done the deal, I'm glad I didn't crawl under it because it worked out as a great investment. On paper it's ARV and rental income is excellent. The crawlspace may scare buyers later on, but since i'm doing a buy and hold for 30+yrs with no money out of pocket, I'm not concerned.
