How can so much happen in a few days?
I wish part of the so much that happened was I got a deal – but it’s not. Close, though!
The lady I’ve been talking to about her brother’s property decided to do something else. I told her we couldn’t meet her number, and she didn’t seem interested in a short sale. She was very appreciative and said she would call if she thought of anything she needed. I’ll probably call to check up on her next month.
I got ANOTHER call today! Another probate, but in a very nice part of town. It’s her parents’ house, cosmetically outdated (since 1968!), but otherwise sound. Problem is that these people have done some research (which is a good thing to do!), but have misinterpreted the data to mean “We can ask for full price”. I don’t know how “the house needs a LOT of repairs and updating” and “we’re thinking of listing it for about 4k less than the assessor’s value” go together. I told her I’d look at the numbers and call her back. They don’t sound motivated. But I’ll take a 7.1% response rate on this probate campaign! That’s two calls on the letters I sent out last SATURDAY. I would love some more calls.
Also, I went to my chiropractor/applied kinesiologist on Monday and she discovered something odd about my wrist. She said it was messed up, started working on it and I screamed! Apparently, working on the computer so much (which has doubled the last two weeks) took its toll? She said it was so bad I might need a brace! She told me to avoid typing the next few days (ha! I’m blogging right now.)
This prompted me to make the probate tutorial a priority, and I’ve decided to hire a Virtual Assistant to do all my researching I planned to do this month. I’ll let you know how much it costs to live the high life and have someone do the grunt work for you! 😀
Have a great week!
