FINALLY closed on our first duplex!

Hi BP,

Just thought I'd share my first success as a real estate investor!

My Fiance and I started looking to purchase a duplex back in January and closed on the property last night! It has been a long and stressful process and it finally happened. Best part about it was that we closed on the 31st, and rent is due today! Ive been contacting the tenants and am trying to arrange meetings for today and this weekend. Also working on meeting the seller to go over a few things with him. The tenants are great, the seller is being super helpful... so far so good! The rental was purchased through an FHA so one set of tenants will have to move out in the next month or two, but all in all.. we are getting things figured out!

I can now officially call myself a real estate investor! that sounds nice...


Congrats Joe!

Congratulations! I'm hoping I can close my first deal here in the next few months. I'm currently looking and researching
