What made you interested in investing in this type of deal?
I was interested in these house due to the renovations. I bought this house for my mother and siblings while I am in New York. I did not have time to really wait and rehab so I got a turn key home. So I was just happy everything was redone and new like the roof. They did the roof a few days before closing
How did you find this deal and how did you negotiate it?
I found this deal through my realtor who is great, Katie King. After finding the house I did my own research about the neighborhood, school district and growth. I only negotiated with repairs like replacing wood in the crawl space and termite traps.
How did you finance this deal?
I did a FHA Loan since I was a first time buyer, I only had to put down 3.5%.
What was the outcome?
My mother and siblings are still living in the house, a place to call a home
Lessons learned? Challenges?
Not much of a challenge but I had to put my self to the side and think about my family first. I was planning on getting a house to rent and use the BRRRR strategy so start my real passion in real estate. I learned a lot with the process and how it works, nice first experience.
How were you able to do an FHA loan without living in the house yourself?
@Tashina Taylor I still have my GA license and could travel back and forth which was only for the closing. I’m not living there daily but I could go anytime
