Welcome to Bigger Pockets.
welcome @Jarad B. I am originally from Jackson, GA and went to college for a little while at Gordon in Barnesville. BP is a great place to learn and network.
The deal fell through! I found a serious septic and well issue that drove the price down for the property in my opinion. I made a lower offer that was declined.
It was an experience regardless of the outcome. I had to talk myself down from the clouds and get realistic about the property after learning about the issues. I was ready to sign papers on something that was more complicated and expensive than advertised but in the end I let the numbers talk and walked away. It was not easy! I was sooo ready to be in the real estate business. In the meantime its all about finding a deal and saving more money.
