what I’ve learned about how to get deals completed over the last year. My strategies have changed so many times until I found a very solid one that works. The best learning experience on these first 2 successful deals was the type of property. 1 was a rehab project with severe animal uring stains and the other was a 4bed/3bath 5y/o house that only needed interior paint. BIG DIFERENCE.
Not to get off base but I really want to thank everyone that supports all of us newbies on the board. Before I stumbled across CREOnline, I failed at identifying great props to purchase so I went the buy and hold route with some duplexes.
I was happy with those purchases but very unhappy at my failed atempts to break into the CREI world until I found this board. It has been truely amazing.
Actually a special thanks to John Locke. He took so many of my phone calls at all hours when I was in up/down phases of deals not workingsand he continued to keep my spirits high. I got to a point that I told John he was not going to hear from me again until I was going to the bank. 4 months had gone by and it finally happened.
Another great thing was my wife. Her philosophy is sounds good but show me the $$$$. She never hassled me about my failed attempts (or at least not much)but when we got the profit checks and they were more than she also makes in a year- - - - -what a wake up call.
Anyway—Thanks again to everyone on the board.
2 more deals to go and the job goes!!!
