My first deal almost done

My first deal almost done

I am so excited. I am about to purchase a 3bed 1/1 bath house with 1600sq ft for $34,000. It is a HUD house and it is a forclosure. This house sold for $102000 in 2006 here in alabama. The market out here is doing pretty good. I used the stradegies in dean's books. I've been reading them over and over. I had to do a home equity loan. I went to three banks before anyone would look at me for a loan because my highest credit score was 598 which I am fixing right now. I have a high interest rate for now but I am not worried about it because I am going to try to flip it and If I can't flip it I will rent it out and the renters will be paying the loan and then I will refinance it to a lower interest rate. I am going to put between 5k and 10k in the property to fix it up. I truly did not use any of my own money so this is a no money down deal. The only money that came out of my pocket was $300 for the appraisel on my house i have now. Other than that I am using the banks money for everything else.


First Deal

Awesome job!! Hope all goes well and congrats on that. Keep up the good work.

Great Job

Great deal, great job. This proves that Dean's strategy really works! Best of luck to you in REI. LA

first deal almost complete

Thanks people for your kind words. Yes I can do it and I am doing it. I'm so anxious I can't stand it. I am suppose to here back from hud probable tommorrow. The next step is I am getting an inspecter to look at the house to tell me what needs to be fixed besides carpet, paint, ect. That way when I find a buyer and he/she gets an inspection everything will be fixed. After the inspection I will be closing. I'm going crazy. Days seem like weeks.


So how has it gone so far? Good or not so good? Hopefully all is well so far, let us know how the process is going for you. Remember without action, knowledge is nothing.. I should listen to myself sometimes. Good luck!!


Can someone please tell me how they would handle a deal with an offer on the table; seller transfer title to me (without cash). What would be your next step?

First Deal

Nice job! Keep up the great work.

First Deal

Congrats Warren! I am also in the middle of rehabbing my first deal. I am looking forward to putting it on the market in a couple of weeks and see what happens. I believe I followed the right steps to purchasing and making the decisions of what to do to get the max out of the sales price. Keep plugging and your prop will be on the market soon too!


Now your own your way to financial freedom!
