Real Estate Newbies, I am doing It. I am working on my FIRST DEAL!

Actually, I have written my SECOND contract because the first one for the first house that my buyer found was rejected by the Sellers because they didn’t want to give a $5000 concession to my buyer even though they were going to get most of their asking price. But like I told my Buyer, EVERYTHING happens for a reason. And the reason was as nice as that house was it wasn’t the house for him.

In fact, we found his house and I have written my second contract and IT WAS ACCEPTED BY THE SELLER except for a few minor details.
WOHOO! I am on top of the world. I am so GRATEFUL. I WILL TELL YOU though. This was not easy. Now it could be that this was my first deal and everything is all over the place and I don’t have that SYSTEM in place YET that everyone is talking about that you set it and forget it. I’ll let you know when that day comes. BUT right now, this is HARD. I am not saying I don’t enjoy the challenge because I most certainly do but it is an emotional rollercoaster that you have to learn how to move through in order to protect yourself and your clients.

WHEW! Well, I’m gonna jump off now and get ready for tomorrow to tighten up the loose ends of the contract and get my buyer ready to move into their new home!

I hope you are moving toward your first deal. I hope my words have inspired you somehow and helped you move past any fear you may have. I know it is not easy but you can do it.



I Believe in you.

Be Positive. Be Grateful. Be Abundant.


WHERE Have I Been?

Well, I’ll tell you. I have been busy. I am working on two deals –count ’em two –. I put in my first contract for my buyer and the first deal was countered and we countered back and are waiting to hear from the buyer. It’s exciting and nerve wracking at the same time.

The other deal I am working on I created. I was thinking of how I could create a deal and went through my business cards and found the card for a contractor that I met previously and called him and told him I found a property I thought would fit his criteria — CHEAP! He saw it and agreed but needed cash flow because his money was coming but not there yet and since this was a short sale, you had to show proof of funds before the deal could close.

So here we are. I have two deals working and I’m thinking of the my third. I don’t know what is going to happen but I fully expect for each deal to produce a check.

I will keep you posted.

Now get out there and put a deal together. You can do it. I BELIEVE IN YOU!
