I've been looking to purchase my first home in Houston, Tx. I'm nervous as any first time home buyer would be. I had the inspection report done and an item he mentioned was the wiring in the home is old. It is aluminum "tube" wiring on a 1930s, 2800sq ft, duplex. I'm buying it primarily for the location but like the idea of being able to have a renter and someone there all the time, I'm a pilot and gone a lot. Can anyone give me an idea of what to expect cost wise to have this replaced with modern wiring? The property has all kinds of initial issues, pier and beam foundation needs work, electrical wiring, and roof could have a leak but like I said the value is in the land. I'm not sure how much the current seller is willing to budge on the repair costs so I'm thinking of pushing him to have the foundation repaired then I'd tackle the cost of the electrical rewiring. I use to do roofing in the past so I'm not too worried about I can do all of that on my own with the help of a few laborers. Thanks for any help! EDIT** It should be known there are two breaker boxes on the outside. One for each unit.
