As with any endeavor, your energy webs and flows when working with houses. Right now, a year into this business, we are putting renewed energy into finding projects to work on. Each week, as part of our daily tasks, we evaluate many potential deals. We have come very close to acquiring a property a few times in the last month, only to find someone else stepped in, or the owners decided not to sell (sometimes for reasons that we have to be happy about, for the homeowners, at least!).
We are reaching out to you, our readers, to see if you know of anyone who has a “sad house” that they might be interested in talking to us about. We’re itching to get to work rehabbing, now that our other projects have sold or are on the market. Personal networking is our BEST strategy for finding people to work with, for which we are very grateful. Just keep us in mind!
One other way we are looking for properties is through our other website, the one on all our bumper stickers and promotional materials. Today I wrote a piece on how we can be creative to help folks quickly sell a property that might otherwise take a long time. The photo is one I doctored up to use on that blog. It’s the oldest house in Cameron, Texas, which used to be a sad house but will soon be a happy coffeehouse!
