2012 Goal Reviews and Summary

If I have any readers left, I have been busy with a handful of things and the blog has been left out. I wanted to post a review of what we did in 2012. Let’s start with the review of the goals post from last year. Landlord Goals for 2012 December 2012 gross rent collected to...

Success Takes Time… So Why Not Start Now

Success Takes Time… So Why Not Start Now
I’ll be honest I stole this title from another blog post (relating to a different industry), but I think it is very applicable to real estate investing.  Another quote I often think of is: “When is the best time to start? Five years ago, but that’s too late, so...

Jan Month-End and a Busy Start

Jan Month-End and a Busy Start
Sorry, I have not been blogging very much at all.  January has been extremely busy! 2010 was a great year for us. Here is what happened in January: We sold 1 property. We bought 6 properties. We rented 5 houses (4 were new purchases, 1 was from a move-out after the lease ended). We...

2010 Goals Acheived…more or less

2010 Goals Acheived…more or less
Well I’m excited to say I can finally check everything off on the goal sheet that stares at me from the wall of my office.  As of Monday we will have hit all of them! It is perfect timing too, as I am heading on vacation for a week. Make 36 Purchases (Rentals, Retail or Wholesale) On...

November Review – Still Moving Forward Slowly

November Review – Still Moving Forward Slowly
It only took six days for me to get around to writing this review. Things went fine in November.  We have pretty much every rental we own occupied (with paying tenants), the market is slow, but prices are coming down (this will make me happy long-term) so we are pretty much good. Summary 1....

October Review – Moving Forward Slowly

October Review – Moving Forward Slowly
The months just keep flying by.  Business is moving forward, but things are definitely a bit slow out there.  We are being cautious as we do not want to make any mistakes, but we also do not want to completely stop looking to buy.  This brain process makes business difficult, always...

Blogging Slump – September Results

Blogging Slump – September Results
September has come and gone and I only made one blog post.  That is terrible.  September was another month full of delays and minor problems.  One purchase got delayed another 30 days… and most likely won’t close until October.  The good news is we are on track still,...

Way Behind, Way Busy – August Goals

Way Behind, Way Busy – August Goals
August was a bit of a discouraging month.  I thought we where going to kill it and buy 5 to 6 houses.  Two deals got delayed and one got canceled because the previous owner was trying to sue the bank.  Which means we only purchased 3 houses.  That still is on pace for the beginning...

July 2010 Goal Review

July 2010 Goal Review
July was another on pace month for the goals.  We ended up purchasing four houses and selling one (a wholesale deal).  The good part is we have three retail deals in escrow and if things go as planned all three of them should close in August… well, realistically, maybe only 2...

June 2010 Summary

June 2010 Summary
June was a great month, we put a ton of properties under contract.  Sold a house and bought a bunch of houses. I am a bit uncertain about the market right now, it seems like the retail buyer action has cooled a bit.  Investors are even more aggressive, so the margins have completely...
