- First, working on houses and fixing things up.. this is what I love doing.
- Second, we have partnered with another couple who just happen to be great friends of ours. There is never a dull moment and it makes working on this house, that much better.
- It’s been a dream of my husbands to have rental property or to be in real estate in some way, but I was never fully on-board.
Bless him, he’s brilliant…and kind…and sweet…and he let’s me do whatever I want. But being handy doesn’t come natural. He’s a quick learner though and one heck of a demo guy.
The problem is, I know how many things there are in a house that can go wrong. In the past, if I can’t fix it, he’s always told me to just hire it out. As many of you know, there’s no money in hiring everything out, so as much as I wanted to back him in his dream, it simply wasn’t the right time.
Then, as fate would have it, our bathroom floor fell in and everything changed. I’m convinced it was a “God thing.”
I called one of our good friends and he came and walked us though doing everything ourselves. A light bulb immediately turned on for me, so I asked my husband that night what he thought about asking our friend and his wife about partnering with us on flipping a house.
And a new company was born!
After two weeks of looking at houses, we found “the one”. Actually, we found 3! But we bid on the first house through HUD and found out the next day that the bid was accepted!
