so how close was the machine able to get the tolerances? did you ask for true 2x4s/2x6s or 1-1/2 x 3-1/2, etc? How long did you cure the lumber for? I like having non-planed lumber but inconsistent sizes would be inconvenient. I guess that is what you get with this though......

Would anyone do this? I have about 15k in IRAs/401ks. I need about that much more to make a down payment on a 4 unit rental. Seller asking 137k (i think it could be had for ~120K), rental income ~1,600/month.

I cannot say that I have any specific fears. I always had an idea that foreclosures were extrememly cheap, very depressed properties. What i have seen however as I look around does does not bear that out (at least concerning price). Maybe folks like me never hear of the really good buys?
