Hi everyone; I posted this last night on FB in CFIC Group and wanted to share with the DG Family. I'm wise enough to know not to count my chickens before they hatch, but I'm really stoked!! It may or may not happen, but NOTHING will if you don't keep PUSHing!! This potential deal just popped up out of nowhere and is from a contact I made more than a year ago. It's just proof that getting out there and taking ACTION of ANY kind breeds opportunity!!!!
Hope you enjoy! Maybe someone that reads this, that needs a 'kick start', or is feeling down about their progress, or lack thereof; GETS BACK UP and tries again!!! Those that know me, can surely attest to my struggles to get going in the past!.....
"Hey Gang! I just gotta share this, as I'm having a hard time keeping it to myself...don't want to jinx it and know I shouldn't count anything till I get to closing table. But with the rough time I've had lately; I hope it's a testament to staying positive regardless, and believing in myself and that 'I am worthy' of good things to come!
Had a Buyer (local L/O 'king') contact me 1 week ago looking for a pkg of 5-10 Turnkey Rentals w/very specific criteria....wanting to close FAST - CASH!!! Had a couple leads frm an investor I've been trying to help sell a pkg (for a LONG time), but he wasn't real interested. I said "OK, let me check out some sources. BTW, have you searched CL, yet". He said "no".
So, what did I do? DUH!! Took ACTION and hit up CL!!! Got 5 responses, and 2 good leads. Found a Seller that had an ad for 4 props, and built a relationship...awesome guy. Ended up putting pkg of 9 together and forwarded info to Buyer. Best thing is, his props fit criteria to a 'T', and are super high quality, with A+ recent rehabs, the works, etc.
Finalized pkg with pics/pricing last night, and was told late today that offer would be no later than this Friday. First offer came in about 2 hours ago!!!!! Buyer's chosen 8 of the 9 to offer on. If it goes to closing on all 8, I stand to make a PRETTY PHAT check.....16 BIG BOYS!!!!!!! I cross my fingers and will pray very hard, for sure! You just don't know what that could do for us, as I've been in 'dire straights' the past couple of months! And....BTW - if any of you are praying souls; please say one for me, too! Sorry for the long rant/post....can u tell I'm pumped???!!! LOL! Getting late now, so gotta go finish my dream of completing this deal!!! :-)"
Here's to a successful day of negotiating! I say, let's get this one done and watch the "dominoes will start to fall"!!! Woooohooo!
