What an absolute THRILL to have wrote those two words! FIRST DEAL! LOL!! I feel all tingly! LOL!
Ok here is the deal. We have a couple of friends who are looking to buy their first home. They are both extremely busy with work, school, family, friends etc... The little bit of house shopping they have done already has them groaning and wondering how in the world are they to do this while juggling everything else on their plates.
The other night when they were telling me this I told them what I am doing and informed them that if I do this for them I would expect a finders fee and that it would be my FIRST time doing this but I would NOT let them down.
I have already found several homes I think they would just LOVE but I still need to talk to them later and get some more information.
I do have a few questions for all of you as well.
What is a reasonable amount to ask for a finders fee? These are very close friends who could probably be a big help down the road when it comes time for me to invest in other homes. I do not want to charge them too much but at the same time I am doing this as a favor and a means to make a bit of cash in our pockets. I want ALL my deals to be 100% HONEST and clean.
Do I include in my finders fee the miles I traveled in order to look at homes after finding them on line? Is that even something I should do? (Look at the homes personally before I suggest them to my friends?)
Any help on this or deals like this would be greatly appreciated.
You can't save the world but you can offer a hand up to a few along your way.
