Hi every one! I have been reading every thing that has been posted for about 3 weeks. Wow alot of good information. I've been working very hard to get my first deal done and finaly did it! I have had some others come close but just did not work. Well I went to a tax auction on Saturday and bought a rehab property. I have private money helping me and plain to do the rehab myself. (over 30 years of construction exp) I bought this property for only $4,000.00 and have a $30,000.00 rehab buget. The FMV. for this house will be $75,000.00 TO $80,000.00 NICE!! Thanks for Dean's book and all the motivation and support you've given me. If anyone is in the upstate NY area investing, we'd be happy to hear from you to see how your doing!
