Copper Stripping in Foreclosures

Img00079-20100430-1010

I was in a foreclosed home this morning that had been vandalized. The vandals stripped ALL of the copper out of the home…here’s showing how they stripped the electrical panel. Usually there are 100 wires and cables coming out of the top! They also took the copper pipes, the copper out of any wiring they could find in the basement ceiling, as well as taking the hot water heater and HVAC systems. What’s scary is that this is not the 1st home I have seen this in. Buyers beware and look out when you are looking at foreclosures! This house will have to be entirely rewired and re-plumbed…i.e. NOT a cheap fix.
