Hey everyone! I have my first potential deal coming up but I need some help! I’m from St. Louis and I have a motivated seller with an inherited house in Oakland, California that would love to sell (I’ll explain later how I got this contact. The story is crazy.) it’s owned free and clear and has a large amount of land compared to the other houses in that area with a lot square footage over 6500 and a house sqft of about 1200.

The problem is that I have absolutely no idea how to estimate repairs on a house I can't see, but I've seen posts on people wholesaling houses in other cities all the time. Does anyone do deals out of state? And if so, what are some of your best practices? Any help would be great because I need to get back with her on an offer today!

Thanks in advance!
