Hello DG folks! Hope everyone is well and on the way to financial freedom!
I just wanted to take a quick moment to talk about the negative things that seem to just come crawling out of the woodwork when ambitious people like all of us decide that we have just had enough and WE ARE JUST NOT GONNA TAKE ANYMORE!
As much as I thought I had convinced myself not to be swayed or surrounded by these naysayers, I found myself sucked into their vortex to nowhere yesterday and part of today.
Quick recap: We are looking at a propety that has been CDOM 896 days! You read correctly. 896 DAYS! OK whats wrong with it. Well, lots of stuff to be quite frank. I got quagmired down into the same quicksand that probably 100's of people did trying to figure out how to make this thing make sense. Well it just does not. It has several makeshift additions that are just a disaster to say the very least. I caught myself trying to over analyze how to keep these disasters, fix them, and like everyone else that kicked this idea around keep the s/footage that is selling at 125-130 per. I literally had 20 people go balistic negative with me about why I was even continuing to look at this pig of a property. I brought my framer over to come up with a hard $ value to fix this mess and he is all over it negative too. His wife is with him and she says, glibly, "Why dont you just totally reframe the shotty roof and turn it into an outside living area." I did a double take....stood there stupafide for a moment and said "say that again."
Well you see where I am going here. The numbers make sense, someone is gonna get a really nice house thats gonna be a lot of fun and we trimmed 10's of thousands of rehab by not trying to keep those horrible additions.
Keep your mind open to ideas and really suppress the negativity. Sometimes it can come from those closest to you and suprisingly enough even yourself!
Good luck and best wishes to all!
