Bank moving S L O W

Almost completed a no money down deal but when the bank learned I was walking away 30,000 every thing slowed down to a crawl,deal has been in the works for two months now. Could use a extra prayer or two. Thanks PJ

You know it will not happen until the time is right. Remember who is in charge, we must keep that at the forefront of everything we do. Like Mr. Proctor would say, "write what you want to be successful in and walk around with it everyday on your body." You have to keep your eyes on the prize. May God see you need and grant it. God Bless.

Don't give up!!!

I am new to the R/E game. I haven't done any deals yet....but I can't be defeated, so I won't quit!! You can't be defeated if you don't quit. Don't settle...You have set your don't stop until you fulfill every one...keep us posted..blessings



I Can't Be Defeated....So I Won't Quit!!!

Pastor Joe,

Good luck on that no money down deal. If it is meant to be, it will work out. Sometimes time can increase a bank's or sellers motivation. Keep us updated as to the progress on this deal. Good luck on all your current and future deals. Believe and Achieve! Smiling - Joe

I made Lots of offers but No houses!

I've made offers on many homes in the last few months, And I started Thinking maybe its just a bad time or I should just hold off, Than It dawned on me Im moving I'm not just sitting watching the deals go by. If I keep on this course I will find the next deal. The Numbers have to work or I have to walk away.
One good home with good numbers brings profit! My rule # one is, (Never buy The Wrong House!) The wrong house being 1. paid to much 2.Thought it was worth more 3.under estamated repairs 4.wrong location

I now realize because I do my home work when I make the next deal it will be profitable. And Im learning a lot on the journy!.

Looking for deal #4

Deal # 4

Very close to Deal #4
2 family reo, good location, tax ass value 140,000 asking price 44,900 offered 37,000,verbal commitment, waiting for documents. True value about 100,000 when fixed

also from post 9-18-09(bank moving slow) I did after 3 months get a 30 year fixed at 6.25 on deal #3 and walked away with all I invested plus $28,000.I also have it rented with 100+ cash flow.

NOTES had to try other lenders, and keep on trying. There many people in my area doing this, my area is at bottom or close to it. There about10 new foreclosure a day its wild fun.

Way to Go

Glad to hear about your progress Pastor Joe. It's great to hear about other's deals. Good luck to you on the rest of them. And you are right; the numbers have to work out in the end and I believe they do. Keep at it.
