What made you interested in investing in this type of deal?

distress = value.

How did you find this deal and how did you negotiate it?

it was on the msl. This was my first deal so I did not negotiate as hard as I should have. The seller would have sold for less. I should have done more home work, lessons were learned.

How did you finance this deal?

Lucky this was a all cash deal.

How did you add value to the deal?

I fixed up all units and am adding a mobile trailer.

What was the outcome?

I got the units rented and am waiting on the trailer.

Lessons learned? Challenges?

Some times the best deal is no deal. Over do your homework.
