Boston, Business, Investing, Wholesaling on August 31st, 2015 Comments Off on Are we in a bubble?

Investing on May 8th, 2014 No Comments

One of our current rehab projects required us to connect to the town sewer.  One small issue–okay there were a few issues. First off, this house is on a main road and the only side streets near the house are dead-ends. This means while the guys are digging up the street, they have to maneuver […]
