Why I HATE Surprises! Or the Reason my Offers to Buy are so “Low.”

Rehab, Wholesaling on June 21st, 2016 Comments Off on Why I HATE Surprises! Or the Reason my Offers to Buy are so “Low.”

As I mentioned before, sellers and agents are sometimes insulted by how low my submitted offers are. “Why do you make such low offers, Nick?” you may ask. Well, I do my absolute best to be super transparent and show my seller all my costs involved in the sale, and of course, I explain to […]

An investor-friendly agent brought us this deal, which when we first analyzed it, we determined it was NOT a deal. But my resourceful partner is connected in the town and he learned that the house […]

Cursed no more! New project in Woburn

Investing, Rehab, Wholesaling on January 11th, 2016 Comments Off on Cursed no more! New project in Woburn

First, I’ve finally achieved one of my most closely-held goals that I had just about given up on. For years, I’ve been cursed where I could never get a project closer than 30 minutes from my office or home. I’m happy to report the curse is lifted and I now have a rehab project within minutes […]

Investing, Rehab, Wholesaling on December 17th, 2015 Comments Off on How to Make Quick and Accurate Rehab Estimates

Being back on the hunt for rehab and wholesale deals reminds me all over again how vital it is for investors to be able to estimate and run the numbers on a deal quickly to determine the highest, best offer while keeping within reasonable profit margins. I recently saw this at work on two lots […]

Rehab on November 16th, 2015 Comments Off on Blueberry Lane in Orleans is Complete!

Yay! I’m super psyched to share our latest completed project — 10 Blueberry Lane in Orleans. We ended up falling 3 months behind thanks to a misunderstanding with the historical commission and ran afoul of our contractors’ summer vacation and fishing plans, but it’s done! And thanks to some expert staging, it looks particularly lovely.   […]
