Having your husband as a Notary for documents you sign is not advisable. You guys have the same last name I presume, and when getting documents notarized a family member should not be used. (Conflict of Interest basically). Some will tell you it’s ok but, personally, I’d just go down to a local car lot or something to get this done to be safe.
Advertise “EVERYWHERE”!!! I don’t care if a lot of investors are currently advertising or not. Anyplace there are houses are great areas to advertise. People that have houses need to sell regardless of where they live! (Now I’m not saying to buy houses that are built in extremely remote areas where nobody wants to live, but basically anywhere is fine)
Yes, for your first deal or first few I would recommend the use of a good real estate attorney to make sure your docs are in line with your state and local laws, but after that, you’ll feel comfortable doing it yourself!!
Hope this helps and best of success to you Min
