Hey guys I figured I would come in here and speak about my first deal as an investor. I got a pretty good HUD deal that didn't need very much work at all other than paint and a few other minor things. Bought it at a good price, did a little work, and slapped it back on the market. Within a month I had it under contract and set to close at the end of this month! Im also an agent so I was able to get the commission on the buying side and save on the listing side!
Purchase Price: $94,000
Holding costs and agent fees: ~$5,000
Im excited and looking forward to my next one but I don't think I'll luck up and find one this easy again. On to the next one!
It is always nice to hear about a nice deal.
Nice work Kennedy! Keep it up and we will all learn from you very soon:)
Thanks for sharing Marcus. Keep the momentum going.
Thanks guys. I'm looking forward to my next one! Ill keep you updated.
congrats! Where did you do the deal?
@Markeilsha R. In Birmingham, Al where I'm from. It's actually a little city right outside the city limits but for all intents and purposes in Birmingham.
Congratulations, @Marcus Kennedy ! I wish you many more successful ventures like this one.
Congratulations!!! That first deal always feels sooooo good. A lot of hard work but it pays off. Looking to hear about your next deal.
Great news @Marcus Kennedy !!
@Cooper B. Whats up man!?
Congrats! Not a bad pull for a months time and not much sweat equity involved. :)
@Tyler Wenzel My thoughts exactly!
