It didn’t take very long, that is for sure! I sent out the probate letters Tuesday at noon and the first call came in today while I was at work. Unfortunately I can’t answer the phone at work (speaking of which I’ve got a question that I’ll ask later), so I called the guy back when I got home from work. Was I nervous? Yup! The phone call went very quickly. Not much was really said as my goal was to get an appointment to go see the house and that is exactly what I got. This Sunday at 10am I’ll be meeting with the guy to show me the house. 1 down!
Want to hear something funny? Now I can’t prove this but after the phone call I was checking out the stats on my blog (for some reason they have tripled the last two days) and I saw that someone searched for “Scott Costello 973-xxx-xxxx”. I bet it was the guy from the house checking up on me. No big deal as I have nothing to hide, but I found it funny. He’ll just know that I’m relatively new at all of this if he read at all. Transparency is a good thing as it breads trust.
Voice Mail Message Question…
For those that can’t always answer the phone, what sort of away message do you leave? Just name and number or more?
Christmas Give Away Week!
I was trying to think of a way to give back to all the people who visit my blog to read what I’m doing and to keep me motivated and I think I came up with a great Idea. Next week, starting on Monday (14th) I am going to give away one thing to a reader each day. Here is the list of items that I might give away, you’ll have to check back each day to see what exactly the gift will be but they are going to be good. I even might have a generous surprise from one of our fellow investors (we are still working out the details). With out further ado…
- Steve Cook’s Rehabbing for Big Cash v2.0
- Stephani Davis’ Flip this REO eBook
- Bill Guerra’s Audio Workshop – How to Talk to Real Estate Sellers
- John “Cash” Lock’s – Big Bucks Bird-Dogging
- Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
I may be adding more stuff, but for now those are the items. The rules will be simple and I’ll post them on Monday when the first Item will be given away. Hopefully I can help someone get their new year off to a great start. If anyone wants to donate an item to the give away, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
