Thanks all for the replies so far!
@Glenn Espinosa I am by no means talented enough or available enough to do rehabs! For me, at this time, turnkeys are the only way to go. Nice!
@Jeff S. You are the one who inspired me to write this actually! Your responses to Wade in another post got me thinking... hmmm. But I am by no means too frustrated with my properties! As the song goes, I cant complain, but some times I still do. For all the trouble, my properties kick-butt, but not always, ;-)
@Chris Clothier - WOW! I really admire and respect you and your biz, I think you and I think MUCH alike! I actually really look forward to the day we cross paths at a BP conference or somewhere else. I love hunting down property! I love "measuring" the deal. Bartering or working the purchase is fun, and unfortunately I have the new puppy complex with my homes, but Im working on that, ha. I am also smart enough to know that alot of this stuff is WAY over my head, thats when I beg for help for those that "Get it", not guru's.
By NO means did I want this to turn into any sort of complaint about it NOT being easy. I work at this hard for me, but then again, I own 3 businesses, work full-time and I dont consider myself an "A" personality. I prefer to live to an awesome retirement, thanks to BiggerPockets, much of the hard work has been done, and I didnt have to pay a guru for the knowledge!
Anyone else NOT an A personality? Wish we could all meet up for a beer around the fire! :-D
