Thx for the clarification Chris !!

Curt when we were starting this project that was mission one... everything at cost.. our Attorney and CPA have donated their time in the set up of our organization.. and on top of that we put in the first 10k of cash into this project.. Chris will bring the home in at cost so at cost of 125k ish that will be a market value home of probably 150 to 170k  given normal closing costs and profit to a retail flipper .   And again why when we started this I wanted one of the top companies in the US to be our provider I knew his company had the ability the desire and could execute and peel one home off and let it go for cost.

And as stated its even less than Cost since we have put the first cash into this project..  I am sure you will agree this is a worthy cause and MI and Chris are eminently capable of providing the first of many homes for this charity... 

We have all been blessed by being on BP and for me spending 4 decades in an industry I know and love this in my mind is a perfect project for me to spend my last years in the business giving back and that's what I mean to do..  

My job and business has always been about building teams.. we have done that and we will execute.. 

I hope you will join us in spreading the word and supporting our cause.

This is awesome! Thank y'all for making this happen. I look forward to donating to such a worthy cause. 

My wife and I have been very lucky and blessed through real estate. We have given one home away to my brother-in-law after he became to I'll to work construction anymore. 

Was planning to do the same for my sister but her condition was worse than her doctors thought. Cancer had completely spread throughout her body and she passed away.

Curious to know what part of town the home is in for $125k?  Also wondering if that dollar amount has built in profit for the company who purchased it and doing the work or if the $125k it truly purchase and all rehab?  sounds like a great project! 

 What? no seriously do you think BP and company are thinking profits? I must have misread your post. 

Right on.

 Agreed!

As an active duty military chaplain I want to thank each person involved.  So many of our military members and first responders give all their time and talents into taking care of others and for very small pay.  Let me know if I can help in anyway.

Thank you Chris we feel there is a great need for this and we are excited to show our hero's that us real estate investors can give back in a meaningful way !!
