@Kris L., I took out a loan for the initial purchase since I did not have the cash.  I am working this deal with my cousin who is managing the rehab.  Since I am in CA, it's nice to have trusted hands on the ground.

@Luke Aubut, the property initially appraised at 100k and I am hoping (based on carefully selected comps in the area) to apppraise around 150k after the rehab.  Fingers crossed!

@Muris Mulalic, thank you!  It is very exciting to finally be working on my first deal.  Been dreaming of this for years.  I have been searching the Southern WI area for deals for about 6 months.  I searched for areas with lots of blue collar industry and high rents.  The community that I purchased in is very family oriented, which is a demographic that I hope to attract.
