Inspections on the new aquisition...

We have all the inspections lined up for tomorrow then a brief lull while we wait to close on the new 3/1.

Until then, I do have a 2/1 coming vacant near 23rd and Drexel. As soon as the tenant has vacated I will post pictures and we'll schedule an Open House so folks can come and see.  At this time, unless some repairs are needed, I expect the Open House to be on 12/12 so folks can move into their new home for Christmas.

Lastly today, I just have to share a quote from one of my tenants because it made me smile... this was for helping them with an issue at the property " are one of the few good people left today and we're lucky to have you as landlords."  What a day-brightener!

Patience is Rewarded

Found a house, made an offer and after a bit of an ordeal with the paperwork and an out-of-state seller, we have a deal!

We will close in mid to late December and get to work right away.  This is three-bed, one-bath in a nice neighborhood near Portland and 23rd.

Pictures to follow but I won't post them until we've closed.

It still looks like we'll have a 2/1 available around the first week in December, stay tuned here for updates.

House Shopping

Out looking at houses again today... I'm pretty sure that if you walk into a house and the floor goes squish and there are pieces of the ceiling on the floor... it's time to walk away, or run away, but in either case, I'm not interested.

I did see another property of possible interest but it was raining and there was no power on so back to see it in the light of day tomorrow.

2 Bed Coming Soon

My goodness, where does the time go?  I didn't realize it had been so long since the last update. At least I know we're not overwhelming anyone's in-box.

At this time, it looks like we will have a 2/1 available around the first week of December.  As plans firm up, I will post pictures and more detail.

Still looking at additional properties but haven't found exactly the right match yet.  It seems like more houses are beginning to come available so I am optimistic that by year's end we'll at least have something in the pipeline.
