On Tuesday I will buy my first investment house in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and I’m beyond excited! I was slightly nervous when I hadn’t heard when the closing date was, and was quite relieved to hear from my title agent.
My son Seth and I are flying into Pittsburgh Tuesday afternoon, and will be in town for at least 4 weeks as we rehab it. It was built in 1926 and needs a complete remodel.
I will be posting before and after pictures here as we restore the beauty of this home.
Last week my sons and I drove 21 hours to the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in search of purchasing an investment home. We spent a great deal of time in the town of Freedom where my cousin Kevin lives with his family.
I found a beautiful home for $76,ooo that didn’t need a lot of work, but the price was too high for our budget. My heart and soul REALLY wanted to buy that house and keep it as a rental home for extra income.
Yesterday morning I found a great real estate agent who works with investors looking for properties and actually sent me a list of homes under $50,000 while we were still on the phone. Both Jim and I combed through the list and hope that we can purchase one soon, and then fix it up and sell it for a nice profit. I have so many goals for this business and look forward to finally buying one.
