Susana's journal

I've finally decided to start my REI journal since today my first offer was accepted!!!

Offer of 42k accepted!!!!!!!!!

Will put 3k down. I want to either do a double close in 14 days or finance the rest with HML.

I have a few HML that I've been talking with but now I have to really find someone to take this deal.

I have run some adds on Craigslist but so far I only have 1 guy who wants to do a lease/option.

Tomorrow I have to give the realtor 3k to lock up the deal. I can't wait!!! Inervous about the rest of the financing but I know it will work out.



Okay so I am working really hard trying to get this deal to close by 4/20.

I've call every HML I see on Craigslist and so far I have a few good leads.

One broker told me I may qualify for 85% of ARV but they really like a credit score of 700 - 720. Mine's not quite there but I will send him the information he's requested and maybe I can use him for my next deal.

I found 2 local investors who are really mortgage brokers but they also work with HM. One told me today he will fund the deal with 5k downpayment. I put $3100 down and really don't have any more so I hope he will be able to fund with my initial downpayment.

The other HML is also a mortgage broker. He works with a pool of investors out of NYC. This is a ver small loan compared to what they usually fund but he said they would give him confirmation with stipulations on Wed. or Thursday of this week!

I have also been running ghost ads on CL and I have 3 buyers who are interested in doing a lease/option. I would like to flip this property and make 15-20k so I can move on to the next deal, but I am interested in doing the lease to own as well if not on this property on the next.

This is all so exciting. I bought Dean's book in mid Dec. and it looks like my 1st deal will close on 4/20. I really admire the folks who did this in 30 days!!

Hi Sunshine! (love the name!)

Just out of curiosity, did you advertise on craigslist for a cash buyer or as an investor special or rehab? I too have been getting tons of calls for lease options! Did I see in another post you are using Costal Funding or was that just for the proof of funds letter? I have yet to hear of anyone closing with Costal to date. Puzzled I wish you luck!!! Keep us posted on the progress, ok?

Rent to own

Hi Dawn,

I adevertised on CL for "Investors needed for multiple projects" and I had a few calls from HML.

I also advertised "Rent to own. 20% below market value!" That one worked really well. I run a variation of these every few days.

I used Coastal for my POF. I would love to actually do a double close with them but so far I don't have a cash end buyer.

Did you see the post today about "Sell your house in 5 days"? Anita says she has done it and it works. Now my plan is to close on 4/20 and try to sell in 5 days using this method. If that doesn't work then I'll rent to own, getting a down payment so I can move onto deal #2!!

Thanks for the encouragement!! I just can't wait until this first deal actually closes!
