I am totally amazed - many of you will remember my frustrated posts about finding a deal here in Jersey after my first flip house. Well, after my long distance assignment with Rina, and reading the new book, something changed in me and I decided to stop analyzing so much and just DO. So while I wasnt really comfortable putting out offers without seeing the houses first - the other way sure wasnt working and was extremely time consuming. So I threw out offers, and this morning I just entered into offer #26 into my "Offer Log" and guess what - my phone rang and it was my realtor saying we have a deal on a great house! ARV is 296,000 and I got it for 162,500.00. I just came back from my walkthrough. It will need approx 40,000 worth of work - but all my options will be open when I'm done - flip, lease/purchase, or hold and rent. Its a great colonial in a neighborhood where they have all been restored. On top of that I think another offer is going to be accepted also! So I've gone from famine to feast! All I can say to everyone is keep at it - keep taking action - success will be ours!
