06.15.09: After seeing Dean Graziosi infomercial (yesterday-Sunday), I had decide to conduct a Google ™ search to do an investigation to see whether there were reviews/complaints regarding his program like others, before deciding if this program was right for me after my experience with the Carlton Sheets program a few years earlier. To my surprise I didn’t find any well I hadn’t actually dug deeper to look for any. So I backspace & saw the web link for the DG site, click it & after reading a couple forum threads; I said what the heck and decide to join the DG site.
I had also been browsing houses earlier on Realtor.com and thru email mailing I was getting from Realtor’s site I had sign up for last year.
06.15.9-06.19.09: Quickly discover DG is addicting. I interacted on DG asking ?’s & answering ?’s only those were I felt knowledgeable. Sign up for acct on Zip Realty to view properties
06.20.09: After reading other’s experiences after they’d read BARM. & only after seeing infomercial again for the second time. I decided what the heck, I ordered Dean’s BARM & PFRERN, I said to myself “my circumstances couldn’t get any worse than they already were.” So I took the plunge. Took a time out from DG to go take my Son to BD party he had been invited to earlier in week. The Marta bus came 50 minutes late after we mad transfer from first bus we got on. A hour & half later we still hadn’t made it to Mill’s BD party after all after discovering the directions I printed from Google ™ Maps for skating rink were bad. I decide we’d head home b/c heat I was getting cranky so was my son.
06.21.09: Woke up, did the usual, until something miraculous happen I decide I write a proclamation statement for myself if I wanted Change and hung it on refrigerator with a couple starfish magnetic. Can you guess what it is? Go ahead! Here’s a hint (look at my sig).
06.22.09: Bad interaction on DG. Remember 2 of Jay Z songs. Making money, main priority. Concentrated on finding properties. RE agent called later, in evening, to confirm scheduled property tour appt time to view I wanted to tour.
06.23.09: Woke up, usual routine, jump on DG, call AiA to find out ‘bout class Grades. Went and got lunch came back. Waiting for school bus to arrive; immediately left to go meet Agent at property. Played phone tag w/ Agent; train held up by another train on wrong track, & me seeking directions to property. Finally located property, Agent pulls up afterwards, he gets out car arguing on phone with somebody about mess up payment of some kind. Front door key doesn’t work, agent walks around back still arguing on dang phone. He comes back around front says “someone is inside watching tv”. Knocks on door, young man answers door. We both look at each other; we assume the property was vacant being that it was Bank owned. Teenager closes door to get adult. Adult male returns to door; smoking cigarette & in Joe boxers. After few minutes of going back & forth trying to see if we could tour the house. Him explaining he had just gotten home from work. Let him know, that was ok, we would reschedule to tour property later. Agent gives us a lift to nearby Marta station. Stop got dinner from Wendy's headed home. Search properties on Zip Realty and few others. Schedule tour for another property I really want to see. interact more on DG, later went to bed myself.
06.24.09: Woke up, went through usual routine of getting son ready for Bus to arrive. Decided last night I would get a jump on locating where property was I want to tour so there be no confusion like yesterday. My dilemma is I got to travel to properties via Public transaction b/c truck is in shop. Also decide to check out two others houses I had saw earlier (on Realtor.com) one of them I let my agent know I was interested in seeing, that were in same vincity as property we tried to tour yesterday.
Didn't exactly locate where property was, got confuse on my bearings again, in which direction the property was so I headed back to Station to get back home in time to beat School Bus before it arrive. Stop and got lunch at local eatry. Check email, Agent inform me one of properties was already under contract, double check with him to see which one it was exactly, also stated he was still trying to get in touch with both of listing agents to find out more about property & reschedule tour and get access code to other property I want to tour tomorrow. That's been my week thus far. I'm hung up on on what offer to possibly submit to the prospective Lenders for either these two properties. I'm looking at properties in $15k under range to purchase as owner/occupant. My target is to come in under $8700 I have to pay in Cash & closing expenses on either property. I'm hesitant b/c I don't know what the bank is willing to accept or whether they will buck at my offer. It's been awhile since I been at closing table. Somebody refresh my memory. What closing costs does the Seller customary pays and what does the buyer pay? What costs can I ask for the Lender to pay (so my expenditure out of pocket is less ; I want retain some of my funds for other purchases to spur up place that I do hopefully get)? Another dilemma I'm running into is low price properties being snatch up by other investors (with deep pockets). I need a nudge from DG fam.
