  1. Real estate Investment 101

    by , 03-20-2009 at 10:56 PM
    Crazy Cat asked me about rental houses so I figured I would post here so everyone can learn from my mistakes.I would also put a disclaimer to check with a professional to make certain you know what you are getting into. I would pay for a house inspection to uncover any hidden faults.If you are living in the house great, you can take what you would have paid for rent and put it for fix up- some houses have to have the work done before you can occupy or rent them. I have 3 in Canton, 1 in Akron ...

  2. One step forward?

    by , 03-18-2009 at 03:59 AM
    Well I finally got a total from the workman fixing rental house number 3. I owe a little over 6k and they still need to do the kitchen and the flooring.I better keep working that second job. This is dragging out longer that anticipated. I also finally have one house rented out and possibly a second renting house number 2, but do not want to count my chickens before they have hatched.My first renter for house number 2 vacated after only a few months. The bad weather has kept them from working on ...

    Well I just got back from a Vegas Trip. I am ready to be good after a period of over indulgence. I had steak at least 4 times and shrimp a couple of times- so now I will be ready to aim for the next 10 pounds of weight loss. I had not gained any weight from my other weight loss ,but I might have after that weekend. I consumed a lot of White Russians- the drink variety. I probably lost a bit of money , but they comped all the food and I treated , my brother his wife and a friend out for a few meals ...

  4. Lessons of the mother

    by , 03-08-2009 at 12:23 AM
    Well I am feeling a little appreciated. I have had talks with 4 out of 4 kids about life lessons.
    1. Oldest daughter 25 has enough credits to graduate with a 2 year degree after this quarter. She is going to look for additional job this summer. I talked to her about budgeting and pointed out she is in a great place. She at least has no debt. After July we are requiring her to pay rent of 500 per month and I am saving that for her for a down payment or for a rental if she is unable to qualify ...

  5. Insomniac

    I worked from 6:00Am to after 11:00pm and should be sleeping but too wound up. Unfortunately I don't get paid for all that. I am salaried on the first job and then the drive time to the second job isn't paid either. I am going to hit the sack soon, as I have to get up and do it all over again. I did manage to get 6 trees planted this weekend,and now my arms are aching from all the digging. I haven't looked to see if the puppy left them alone.Night you all.
