I wish I could offer words to really help but I can’t. I will offer some observations, that I made in life.
Successful people seem to get up 1 more time than they get knocked down.
Life’s low spots prepares one to appreciate the high spots, the inbetween areas are where your charactor and drive takes over.
Remember life is not fair or kind.
Everyday above ground is an opportunity to be seized.
When you are down there is no place else to go but up.
I am 56, I started late. I started investing at 51. It was a struggle but quitting was and is not an option. I feel successful in this business, although compared to some I have not done anything. I have bought and sold about 5 properties a year and kept some as reentals. It is a challange, everyday. Age is not a factor, you are never to old or too young to start.
If you have done all you can do to buy this property maybe you are being lead down a different path. There is always something better around the corner.
I usually don’t write things like this but I hope something I said may help you go on. I will pray that things will work out for you in the future.
