I just joined the Success Academy on Friday 2/19/10 and just completed my first module. In just the amount of time I have spent thus far with the folks at DG I have to say I am truly inspired.
I currently rent an apartment in Oklahoma City, but have decided to relocate to Tulsa, for a number of reasons. I have found out that I will qualify for the $6,500 tax credit against my '09 income taxes if I buy put a contract on a house by April 30th and close by June 30th of this year, so I want to find something soon.
I plan on calling the coaches in the morning to get counsel on how I should proceed but if anyone is interested in giving me their opinion I am open to them. I am recently divorced, have excellent credit (750 ish last I checked), have cash for a down payment, etc. I would like to find a 3/2/2, single story.
My question is, should I work with a real estate agent right away or use the tools available thru Success Academy, the coaching, etc? Time if of the essence and I want to find a good deal that is within what I want to spend. I want to find something in the neighborhood of $100,000 to $125,000, which I believe should be doable.
Any thoughts on how I should proceed? Thanks everyone.
