For those of you that read my post a few days ago committing to doing 10 deals by convention time, here’s number 2.
Since getting fired up again and deciding to take serious action, I decided that I didn’t care if my soon-to-be ex-wife was going to try to fight with me over a piece of any new deals that I did. I had assigned away all my deals, and resigned myself to hiding my head in the sand until my divorce was final. However, I just could not keep doing that, knowing what I know about creative real estate (thanks entirely to this site), finances, and having done many deals in the past.
Well, the “first” deal that I did, which was last week was a quick flip that put enough money in my pocket to buy myself a car to replace the one that my wife had taken. After I did that, I decided to put up some old “We buy houses” signs that I had made up months ago, but never put up due to trying to pull out of the real estate game. Well, I got a few calls over the weekend and yesterday signed a new lease option deal!
I’ll tell you what, I think I understand what heroine addicts feel now! When I signed that deal, I got the rush that I remember getting every time I signed a deal. The funny thing is that at my new job, every time I get that big paycheck in the mail, all I think about is how to get away from working a job again! It felt great offering these sellers a solution to their problem, plus knowing that I had worked a great deal for myself. (I negotiated 3 and a half months before my first payment is due! (It’s the slow season for real estate, you know!) Is that enough time to find a tenant/buyer?) Anybody know where I can get treatment for this affliction of mine?
