Purchase price: $140,000

Bought at the sheriff's sale.

How did you finance this deal?

Cash, then did a cash out refi with our hard money lender.

What was the outcome?

Made $$$

Did you work with any real estate professionals (agents, lenders, etc.) that you'd recommend to others?

@Scot Howat  Congrats on the successful deal. Question for you...when you say you did a cash out refi with your hard money lender what do you mean by that? I know what a cash out refi is and I know what a hard money lender is. I would normally think that the hard money lender is used in the earlier stages of a project then you'd refi with a long term loan through a more conventional lender?

I bought this at the auction, so I had to pay cash for it.  Once I had the deed, and recorded it, then I went to my hard money lender and had him cash me out so that I take those funds and try to buy another deal before this one was done.

Make sense?
