I joined this site quite some time ago and took time away as I became a Licensed Agent in Florida and Ohio which required quite a bit of studying and learning. It's been almost a year since I obtained my first license and I have no regrets. However, I have to admit that Rina might have been on to something when she said she wouldn't want to do what Agents do (coming from the other side where we work agents to death)...except I do love helping people buy their own little piece of Paradise in Florida.
I have decided to re-focus and again incorporate doing more of my own personal investing...moreso when I go back "home" to Ohio in April. For the next month, I'll continue working with buyers/investors here and fly in as needed. I have a couple deals here (Fort Myers area) that should close this month with a couple second home buyers from back home, a potential deal with an attorney (spent 50 minutes on the phone today going over potential contract line by line..yikes!) and another buyer/investor I showed a condo to yesterday who may end up doing something yet...He decided against the property I showed him yesterday because of the smoke odor and what appeared to be nicotine layered furnace...oh well. It's an awesome little condo though in a really nice community with his own garage..not easy to get here with his other criteria! Sold for 197K in 2004 and asking price is 69K...be interesting to see what banks ends up selling it for. Be a great deal for the right person.
Anywho..decided to start a journal to share experiences and stay focused. I can get scattered into wanting to do everything and sometimes it backfires and leads me paralyzed and unable to make my next move and there is no time for that!! This will help keep me on track!
