So, Channel 2 Action News sent hidden cameras and a Channel 2 producer in to see what really happens when you show interest in a squatter home.
But at 1 Time Payment Homes, the site makes it clear these are squatter homes and spells out just what that means in a pinned Insta story.
“The company’s owners will come out, so will the police. The police will tell you there’s nothing they can do about it -- squatters rights,” our Channel 2 producer J.P. read off the Instagram account.
“This is a criminal act. This is stealing and needs to be looked at that way,” said a property owner who asked only to be identified as David.
Holmes told Channel 2 consumer investigator Justin Gray that he used his life savings to buy a DeKalb County home out of foreclosure eight months ago as a rental property.
1timePaymentHomes is running a New Year’s special: $1,400 for keys and a lease so as a squatter you can “stack money and turn ya life around.”
