Happy Friday! I'm happy it's Friday but I'm on call this weekend so I need to be prepared to come into work at all times. I'm cursed when it comes to call. Can you guess the last time anyone in our department was called in for an emergency while on call? You guessed it... that last time I was on call (which was about 2 months ago). Luckily we do not get called in very often but when we do it seems that I'm the person.
Anyhoo, I've spent all week learning my new market. I've been on the mls about 3 hours every day and feel like I'm really making progress. There is one property in particular that I am going to call about. It is not a cherry pick but still a potential deal, I think. I'll keep ya posted. I have also been bidding on a HUD in my current market. We are about $10k apart so it will still take some time I will watch and wait.
Earlier this week I connected with Brian about him coaching me. I told him a little about myself/what I wanted out of a coach and then he told me about his coaching program. It sounds great and, in my opinion, exactly what I need/want!! He sent me an application to fill out and now I'm just waiting to see if I am a fit for his program. He doesn't take everyone who applies so there may be a chance of this not working out. I'll keep ya posted here too!
Updates on current properties:
A-Hole House: Not much. Back in July I said I would fund the rehab and we were going to split the profits 50/50. Since then nothing has really happened and my financial situation has shifted a bit b/c of the rental. I feel pretty bad about this so I sent an email on Tuesday letting the broker/his asst/my realtor know what is going on. In the email I also suggested the broker take all the profits upon selling and the only money I want is my EMD as well as the money I have put into the property up to now. Of course I will still help with anything they need! That was Tuesday, today is Friday, and I still have not heard anything from them. Hilarious! I don't know if he's mad, happy, impartial, has questions?!?!
Rental: New roof is complete. Carpet is installed. Paint will be finished next week. Landscaping will hopefully be finished next week. New screen door, screens, outlet plates should be done next week as well. When all is done I am going to have one of the local realtors come take a look and see what they say. We'll either sell quickly or rent.
I think that's all my updates for now. Off to go research more properties.........
