Bathroom Wall Hole....How bad is this(moved)


There is an investment property I am thinking about making an offer on. The only red flag I have is this wall in the bathroom. I was hoping someone could shed some light on how serious of an issue this is. I attached the 2 pictures of it, and would really appreciate any insight. Thank you.

Trying to fix the tile is waste of time and $. Rip out all the tile and that window. It will be a continual source of water damage, mold and rot. Put in a small window above a new tub surround enclosure. Although a exhaust fan with no window would be my first choice.

How much of problem is it? Depends on your skills. As a full time landlord myself, I make repairs and upgrades like these routinely.

No skills? Got to pony up! Good luck in the rental business.

+1 to Yodaman's comments.

Feel free to look at it as an investment, but you better budget for a new shower.
