Re: I just found a guy taking pics of my backyard... Is my landlord a little crazy?
Ummm...I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the landlord may not know what is going on. When I was a real estate agent, I was paid by banks to come and do BPO reports...broker price opinion reports. You go to the home, take pictures, make notes of any damage or needs, and give a broker's opinion of what the home is worth in the current state. This is done so the bank knows what they're likely to get after they repossess the property in foreclosure. It is also possible it is an insurance agency taking pics to send to the underwriter to see if the home qualifies, but I would definitely see if you can ask the landlord what it's about. It is a real possibility the bank is about to take the home back and they want to know what kind of condition it is in.
