Finally My First Deal!!! So Motivated!!!

Well it’s been too long. My last blog took you up to the deal I thought I had but got killed at the inspection do to termites. Even though the seller said they would take care of the initial treatment and for an additional year (as is required) my buyers wanted no part. They were out! So in the next few days I didn't know what to think. They said they would call but it was 4 days since I heard from them. 

Finally they did contact me with some new houses they wanted to see. Whewww! I've got another chance with them. As we searched the next few weeks we finally found another home they loved. After a back and forth negotiation we agreed on a price. The inspection could not have been any different.

When myself and the clients got to the home the seller and inspector where there already and they inspector had went through the house already and gave it the thumbs up. We then "officially" went through the home and got the all clear. So we had the closing and the deal was FINALLY DONE! I was so proud to get that first paycheck.

Now as I look forward I've been hosting all of the open houses I can. While I try to get the word out there about me I'm trying to line up buyers to work with and as of now I have 3 very good buyers I'm working with. 

To go with that I've just sent out my 3rd addition of my neighborhood newsletter and handed out a few pamphlets to some other homes as well. So as it goes now I have 1 deal this year. With the foundation I'm laying and the drive I have I hope to "bring my game" up another level heading into the last quarter of this year.
