Squatters – A nightmare for any investor!

Storming in where mortals fear to tread! Not something you should do unless you are prepared for the worst. Be careful out there folks, for property management in Indianapolis you need to work with us.

Sometimes I get so used to looking at abandoned properties and forget where I am at… Yesterday was a bit of a scare and reminder! Your heart skips a beat when you realize what you are looking at.

Some Rules for the road:

  1. Let people know where you are going! Even if you are a bad boy and can defend yourself, I have been in houses where the floors or stairs could cave in. Can’t beat up a bad staircase!
  2. Be aware of your surroundings. When you walk into a “vacant” property, do some shouting out that you are there. “HELLO!!!  I AM HERE TO VIEW THE HOUSE!! ANYONE IN HERE?  LET ME KNOW AND I WILL LET YOU LEAVE!!!” Squatters are usually just as scared of you as you are of them…
  3. View a home during daylight hours. There’s NO REASON you should be viewing homes after dark. I don’t care who you are.
  4. Please don’t confront people if you can help it. Don’t get mad and aggressive. There’s no reason to. Leave the property and call the police.
