Wholesaling in January

Well the month of December has past and we are almost done with January. Can you believe how time flies? I am actually getting ready to board a plane for Florida to spend some quality time with my family which includes my 11 week old baby boy.

January has been an interesting month to say the least. You try to set your goals very high for the beginnning of the year so you don’t end up shooting yourself in the foot. At least that is what you should do! Every now and then you get those months where everything seems to go your way. Sellers are actually glad that you contacted them about buying their house. The offers that you make are gladly accepted and the house sells in seconds of you getting it under contract.

This month has not been one of those months! I have started off with some strong marketing campaigns and I even branched off into a new market which is a couple hours away. This is a new endeavor for me and I will keep you informed on how that goes. I thought everything was going to start with a bang when I got a seller telling me they would sell me their property for 30,000 when I knew I could sell it for 85,000! That is the deal that you dream about right there! Unfortunately it ended up that they verbally agreedĀ  with me over the phone for that price and ended up going with a national competitor for another!

I will get a little more into detail on the houses that I have run into this month and the results in the next post. Right now I have to get on a plane to Florida. Did I have to ask anybody’s permission to take a trip with my family to Florida? YEAH RIGHT!!! That is one of the advantages of working the wholesaling business full time! You get to be the boss and do whatever you want, whenever you want, however you want and nobody can say a thing about it….well they can but who cares!!! it doesnt effect your job status!

Well I have to run! I have to fax this contract back to a seller on a deal I just got accepted before I leave!
