I cannot believe it’s been 2 years since the first property that I acquired, renovated, and rented.
Before my most recent trip home, I contacted my Property Manager to let her know I wanted to do a walkthrough of the property. Without hesitation, she said okay and noticed the tenant.
I arrived at the property a few minutes earlier to just take in the view of the property.
The tenant greeted me when I walked through the door and I was amazed at the view. It still looked the same with the exception of a few drawings on a door. It looked really good.
As she showed me around and pointed out a few things that I needed to fix, most of which were not emergency fixes; I felt very happy and proud. She also told me that the HUD HCV Program Inspector mouth dropped to the floor when he came inside. He couldn’t believe someone would put all that work into a property in that program.
She said she loved the place and that I did a great job on it. My Property Manager who is also a Real Estate Investor loved the layout of the kitchen so much that she is going to be doing well the same layout on her next project.
I couldn’t take all the credit for the kitchen layout; I only picked out the appliances but that was the ultimate compliment anyone has given me during my real estate journey and she has a lot more properties than I do.
I wrote this point to not only continue to inspire myself, but others as well. Real Estate doesn’t have to be scary or hard when you have a good team.
