Boots on the ground in Birmingham

If you are needing Boots on the Ground, here is my experience in Birmingham area

Here is a quick video that I put together of a property that I went to go look at earlier this month. This is in the Ensley area of Birmingham Metro. It’s a property with great potential with a little of damage in the eaves, roof, and windows. It’s a 3/1 which is typical in the area, enclosed front porch, and a deck off the deck (cat not included with house)!

To give a little context from this video, I have been working with a group out of Texas that purchase tax deeds in Jefferson County. These are properties that the property taxes haven’t been paid on it at least 4 years. What I do is go out to the property to take a quick assessment of the property:

  • Occupied/vacant
  • Condition of exterior and possible repairs needed
  • Neighborhood insight
  • Garage/carport/basement considerations
  • Personal opinion on property

Give me call if you need some eyes on a house!








Google street view is a good start for looking at the condition of the properties but some haven’t been updated in a while if ever. I take a few pictures of the exterior especially if I can tell if it’s vacant. I also confirm the street number on the house to ensure that the house is the correct one. I have run across sometimes that the Jefferson County records aren’t always correct with the street numbering system.

Check back next week when I’ll update the blog about a lock change out that we are doing in the area, and getting to inspect the inside of a property that I checked out back in June.
