I just made an exact replica on my computer of a mortgage coupon I had for one of my own loans (from Barnett). Just made an exact replica. Cut them all down to size (about 4" x 8 l/2", stapled them together. I usually include address labels made out to me and stamps! That way there is NO reason why they don’t or can’t pay me on time.
Once my first template is set up, I can just change the pertinent data relative to each mortgage.
I NOW save all of my original docs on disc and keep the discs SAFELY zippered into my purse! Used to be I saved all my originals on Kenny’s computer. ‘Mr. Computer’ was CONSTANTLY upgrading his computer with new versions and ‘whatnot’. Before I knew it, my files were either ruined, inaccessible or (worse yet) GONE!
That was a LOT of ‘keying in’ down the tubes.
I shouldn’t even go into what happened…when (after begging and pleading for my OWN computer at home) I finally got one. Wasn’t the greatest OR the fastest, but it my ALL MINE…or so I thought.
The rules were “keep your hands off Mom’s computer”.
Next thing I knew, the kids had loaded games onto the computer. Shortly after that…pieces (major components!!) were being ‘borrowed’ and sold off from ‘MY’ computer…
So NOW I ‘key in’ at work when I have spare time & save to disc! And I am a happy camper!
Unfortunately, nobody at home seems to take my r.e. stuff seriously. But–what they fail to understand is—real estate is what is going to save us as a family!
Trust me, it is slooooow going (in whatever I try to accomplish)…It takes me twice as long to do anything because of the ‘obstacles’ at home. But I haven’t given up!!!
