Wealth Explosion Event !

Scott CostelloBlog Leave a Comment

I’ve always wanted to go to one of Steve Cook’s events and I finally pulled the trigger and signed up for the 2009 Wealth Explosion Event. It’s down in Baltimore which is pretty close to where my sister-in-law lives which is good because my wife can come along and visit with her sister. Also another added bonus is that there is a Texas de Brazil down there and I could go for some of that!! Here is the link to …

Long weekend

Scott CostelloBlog Leave a Comment

This past weekend was a long one! I was almost looking forward to Monday coming. My Sister-in-Law was up for the weekend with her 3 year old and new born baby and was staying with us. That alone isn’t that bad as the kids are both pretty good, it only gets interesting when they rile up our dog and then there is barking, screaming, barking, screaming and me having to chase the dog around because he got one of the …

hassansr over at Reiclub.com forum post this as part of a log for finding a deal… In my little corner of the Atlanta market a good number of the middle class home buyers want and can qualify for homes in the $100 – $200k range, which for the most part are your garden variety, modern 3-5 bedroom room homes with 2 -3 baths, less than 1/4 an acre and a two car garage. That being the case I’ll target houses …

Corzine Foreclosure Help

Scott CostelloBlog 2 Comments

I happened upon an article today stating that NJ Gov Corzine signed a law to benefit homeowners in New Jersey. The law basically says this…. New Jerseyans risking foreclosure now have access to millions of dollars — plus an army of no-charge counselors and lawyers — to help keep their homes. Governor Corzine said thousands of homeowners can expect relief in loan and lease programs, funded with $40 million from a law he signed Friday. He also launched a first-in-the-country …

phone fixed!

Scott CostelloBlog Leave a Comment

I think I fixed my phone! There is this standby/mute button on top of my phone that I’ve never really noticed before. I put the phone into standby mode and then took it out and it magically blasted sound into my ears once again. YES!! Ok, I promise I won’t complain about my phone anymore. Business Cards Yesterday I got my Short Sale business cards that I’ll be handing out to Realtors at open houses this weekend. They look pretty …

Sometimes you just have to laugh… the day after my post cards get sent out, my phone decides that it no longer wanted to let me hear anything!! It rings when someone calls, yes, almost as if teasing me…go ahead pick up the phone…it might be a seller…But it does no good, cause I CAN’T HEAR ANYTHING!?!?! When I try and call someone I can’t even hear the other phone ring through my phone, it’s just silent. To top it …

Goals for the year

Scott CostelloBlog 4 Comments

The successful people in this business always say one of the keys is to set goals for yourself. Short term goals, long term goals, goals for the year, month, week, day, etc… As you can see on the right side of my blog I listed 5 or so goals I have for the next two months. I tried to be specific, as it helps to measure progress. If you set a goal of “doing 1 deal by the end of …

Sent Postcards, Craigslist Ad and Giants

Last weekend wasn’t as productive as I would like it to have been. The holidays broke me out of my routine of getting things done and now I’m struggling to get the ball rolling again. On Sunday my wife and I had enough of our dog eating all the Christmas tree ornaments so we decided to just take down all the Christmas stuff. Well wouldn’t you know it, I lost track of time and it was 2:30 before I knew …

A few more business cards

Scott CostelloBlog Leave a Comment

The other day I was thinking that I needed more specific business cards depending on who I was giving the card to. So I went to… Vista Prints …and created some simple cards. I’m going to give this one to realtors, on my open house tour, so they will call me with any Short Sales they have. I can then pass those leads on to my friends at NJQuickSell.Com This next one I’m going to include in mailings I’m going …

Still Here

Sorry I haven’t posted in about a week, I’m reorganizing my priorities now that the holidays are over. I managed to sell my car, which is good, and now it’s time to sell my car computer and to see if I can get any money back from my 100k warranty that was on my car. As far as investing goes… I’ve been getting a good amount of “Return to Sender” from the postcards that I sent out before Christmas. Not …
