My New Record! $40,000 in 7 Days Wholesaling!

My New Record! $40,000 in 7 Days Wholesaling!

A few months ago I posted about how I was able to make over $50,000 in 1 month wholesaling. I hope that inspired a lot of you to take action, because I was able to do this while battling with Ulcerative Colitis and Crohns Disease on a daily basis. I know everyone has their own struggles but you must think positive and never let anything limit your success in life.

I did just that and was able to push the boundaries even further and accomplish a new record for myself.

I was able to make $40,000 in wholesale profits in 7 days!!!

I posted copies off all the checks on my blog (which you can find below in my signature) for proof for anyone who needs that extra "see it to believe it". It's under the topic: "Status Update: Another Record & Still Going Strong!"

Here is a brief summary of the 5 closings:

Deal 1: (10/19/11)
Contract Price: $15,000
Sale Price: $20,000
Our Profit: $5,000

Deal 2: (10/19/11)
Contract Price: $7,000
Sale Price: $12,000
Our Profit: $5,000

Deal 3: (10/21/11)
Contract Price: $10,000
Sale Price: $20,000
Our Profit: $5,971 (this was a double closing with a partner)

Deal 4: (10/25/11)
Contract Price: $48,000
Sale Price: $70,000
Our Profit: $22,000

Deal 5: (10/25/11)
Contract Price: $44,000
Sale Price: $46,500
Our Profit: $2,500 (Approved short sale given to cash buyer for fee)

The total profits in 7 days was $40,471!!

My wife and I were able to basically take the whole month of September 2011 off after doing our $57k worth of deals in August. We took the time off so I could focus on my health and getting better (I was very ill in September) and my wife could take care of her sick grandmother. We probably only worked about 30 hours the entire month of September than hit the ground running in October and we broke another personal record by closing over $40K in 7 days! This is the kind of freedom Real Estate Investing can bring you! We are consistently closing 3-10 deals on average every month right now and hopefully will have 2 more closings before the new year.

I now have a new goal (and expect) to do over $500,000 in wholesaling profits in 2012. I really want to start training and partnering with others around the country who are in major cities, so I can share the experience and knowledge I have gained since closing my first deal in September 2010.

If you live in or close to a major city you can work in, feel free to pm me your email address if you are interested in partnering up and working together.

Stay motivated guys and remember that REI is all about mindset! Stay positive and NEVER GIVE UP!

To Our Success!

Some Info on the deals

Hey Guys & Girls,

I just wanted to thank you for all the positive comments and replies. I seen a couple of people asking for some more details on the 5 deals I did so here it goes:

Deal 1: (10/19/11)
This was a deal I got off of a bandit sign. The property was a duplex in a pretty bad neighborhood, but it didn't need a whole lot of work (maybe $10k). The investor who bought will rent out both units for about $1200/mo, so after my fee and the $10k worth of repairs he will cash flow about $800/month when he refinances to pull his money back out.

Deal 2: (10/19/11)
This was a really run down property we got off a bandit sign. The property was a small row home with good rent potential. It needed about $30k worth of work to get up to rent standards and will rent for about $900/mo. The investor who bought this should cash flow about $400/mo after doing repairs and pulling the money back out.

Deal 3: (10/21/11)
This was a deal we got off our bandit signs as well. The property only needed about $10k worth of work for a rental. The property sits right on the outskirts of a hot university area. Our buyer likes these areas for future expansion and the area going up in value. He will rent this out for about $700/mo. We also did a simultaneous closing, because our buyer's bank who he refinances with doesn't like to see assignment fees. The buyer funded the first transaction for us and then we sold the property to him 5 minutes later. =)

Deal 4: (10/25/11)
This was our slam dunk deal of the month. The property is in a hot area and we got the lead off a letter sent to the homeowner. We seen that the property looked vacant, so we sent him a letter. The seller's asking price was only $50k and we knew at that number we had a great deal. We talked him down a little more and had a buyer ready to go for $70k as soon as we put it under contract. The investor will be into for about $100k after repairs and will sell it for about $155-165k.

Deal 5: (10/25/11)
This was a short sale that my team had been working on for a while, and we were able to get the bank to accept an offer where one of our buyers would take it. We ended up making a small $2500 negotiation fee on the property, because the bank wouldn't go any lower on their price.

I have also seen all the DG Inner circle members giving back right now for the holidays and I really want to do the same. I feel blessed to have been able to accomplish so much even with my challenges, that I really want to start helping others. In my post you might have seen that I was interested in mentoring and partnering with others around the country.

Well I want to be able to give back too, and I am going to have a drawing where I will pick 1 person to partner with and mentor to begin the new year. If you want to be in the drawing please send me a private message and I will give you more info on how to get in.

Thanks again for all the kind words, and I will continue to keep everyone updated and inspired! Laughing out loud

First of all, I hope you're well. My goodness! Being sick is horrible and I know what you mean - - I had a brain tumor years ago.

I am, however, very new to be a REI. I would LOVE to do wholesales myself. I need to bring buyers and sellers for my future team.

My best to you and I hope your health is better. As for me, please send me your luck.
