I wouldn’t blame you if you forgot about this property, the one in Temple that was chock full of mattresses when we got it. Lee says it’s the only house we ever got that looked better before we got rid of all the stuff inside.
We had a lot of trouble getting a contractor to work on the house, after the original choice, the team who did our previous Temple project, the Ash House, became unavailable (we only got this one because we thought the first guy would be able to do it, but his life changed). Lee and Mandi went back and forth to Temple so many times to meet with folks who either didn’t show or didn’t bid after they saw the place.
So, Lee put it on the market, but really didn’t market it to anyone other than investors. Again, lots of appointments, lots of cancellations. But suddenly we have ended up with TWO potential buyers! One’s a new investor who Lee likes a lot. We are hoping to sign papers with her today. She’s local to Temple, so will have a lot easier time getting people to work on the place.
Our investor friend Vern also has expressed interest, so we have a backup plan, too. That is what you want!
We will be able to make a small profit on this house, which probably covers the gasoline costs of driving back and forth so many times. This one will have to go under the “lessons learned” category when the sale is complete. Don’t work on a house in another town unless you are VERY sure you have the workers lined up.
