This is one of the three properties I bought in the 30 Day Challenge I made. We found this property using the fresh to the MLS method, this was a traditional sale not an REO. When I called (which I always do before I drive a property) to see if it were available they were just about to submit offers in a couple hours so I dropped everything, jumped in the car and took a look. Go to the pictures videos page to see that smelly first walk and the pictures page to see some before shots.
As soon as I walked it I called the agent from the front porch and let them know to write up the offer which got accepted over 30 other offers after having to raise my price $25,000 and offering a 4 day close (The trust ended up taking about 3 weeks to close)
This property consists of a 2 Bedroom 1 Bath 850 sq. foot house on a large lot. We paid $145,000 and go to the property pro-forma page for our projections.
Escrow closed June 10th
