    Hi Ali! I’m new to your site and definitely new to real estate investing. I came across this listing and wanted to get more information on it’s availability and condition. Do you have any internal pictures of the home?

      Hi Joanne! I just saw your email come through so I’ll talk to you more on there. I can always get interior pictures. A lot of times they aren’t available when the property first becomes available because they are usually for sale before the rehab is done. But I can always check in with the seller and see what they have. If they have them, they usually have both pictures and a video.
