Today was the big day that I did my first assignment. I had a seller contact me about selling her property, I went and looked at it, locked the property up for 5K. I marketed the house, found a buyer that wanted it, assigned it to him for 6K. Sounds simple right?? Wrong...here's a little twist on the story. The seller bought the house on contract. The seller never recorded the deed, and had lost the abstract. The house had been set to close 3 different times but something new would pop up that would prevent us from closing. So, we ordered a new abstract that the seller would have to pay for (500.00 mistake for her), then we had to record the deed that she never recorded...(42.00) for her as well. And she had some back taxes that she had to take care of...(350.00) loss for her too. But at the end of the day, I walked out with my check in hand!!
It took awhile to get to closing, but when we did, it was a (literally) 10 minute deal.
All in all, I spent a total of around 6 hours on this property.
If I can do it....you can do it.
Failure Is Not An Option
