I’ve noticed that about the “Newbie Challenge” people. I am very interested in the cold hard truth so you spelling it out for me doesn’t scare me, it simply better prepares me. I am not one for sugar-coating. What I really want is candor. I appreciate your responses. I am sure I’ll be a frequent contributor to the site once I get my feet under me.
Here’s something interesting that just came about today. I have a mobile that needs to be moved onto a lot. I posted a while back about buying a repo. I didn’t get it, I had bid $500 and it sold for $1000 the day before I called back to up my bid to $1000.
Anyway I had my brother contact the lady who bought the mobile to see if she was paying lot rent or whatever? She is moving it. I told him to offer he $500 to swap them. Saves me the cost of moving and saves her 1/2 the cost of moving. Solving problems is what we do.
Meeting her tomorrow, she’s going to look over our mobile and see if we can come to some type of deal. This is the type of thing that fascinates me about this business. I should have offered $1000 if that’s what I was willing to pay for the repo though. Lesson learned, don’t get too cute.
