Michelle and I just got home from checking on 2 houses. They were side by side and were both for sale. One had a For Rent sign so we are going to call and see what the deal is. The other is empty but looked nice, we'll need to get an appoinment to go check it out.
OK, before I ended this posting I decided to call the For Rent number and got the owner of the house. He told me it was for rent or for sale and then gave me the realtors name. He has been under contract with her for 6 months now, his contract should be over by now, right? He said he wasn't sure. He also mentioned that he has 2 other houses for sale, one on the same street, and that he needs to sell the 3 houses to settle an estate since his dad pass away. I did a search on his name and 10 properties come up under him. ALL 10 are delinquent on taxes! I just spoke to my realtor buddy and he says that more then likely his contract with his realtor is over and he said I should call him and ask him what he wants for all his properties. If he is not interested in all, then he said to talk to him and find out what he NEEDS and figure out the best deal on multiple houses. I am defnitely not ready for this, I have no buyers at all. My buddy says to lock up whatever I can and start putting them on craigslist and get the word out. ADVICE!! I am going to try to get in contact with a couple people I met at the REI meeting the other night and see what they think.
