cough cough cough

I’ve never coughed so much before in my life. Nothing worse then a dry hard cough that makes your head pound and your ribs break. It’s finally let up some over the past day or so, but my body is just drained. Last 3 days Today, tomorrow and Thursday are the last 3 days before I pick who is going to get a free copy of Steve’s Course. I will say it’s an amazing course that is worth 10 times …

Foreclosure List

I created the webpage where people can come and get a list of Foreclosures in Morris County NJ. If you want to take a look at it go here Morris County Foreclosures I’ve still got some kinks to work out like making it only viewable for “registered” members. This should be pretty easy as the Joomla interface makes life simple. If anyone has suggestions feel free to leave a comment. Drawing The interest in my Wholesaling for Quick Cash course …

One New Thing a Week

Scott CostelloBlog 12 Comments

I would rate my last week of REI as Dull! I didn’t get any calls and I didn’t really accomplish anything new that would get me closer to my first deal. One thing I’ve been trying to do since the new year is every week do something I haven’t done before that will help me gain in my investment career. Posting the contest about winning the Steve Cook course was an attempt at that. I’m surprised I haven’t had more …

Two Copies Of a Course – Want One??

Scott CostelloBlog 8 Comments

Thinking Out Loud I’m trying to think of ways to get more interest in my blog as well as drum up some buyers for my buyers list. Now the two can be related, that is if I can attract buyers from New Jersey to come see my blog. Free Course One way to get more people to my blog is of course to offer something useful to them outside of my daily experiences (which should be enough right? hahaha). Well …

Phones are quiet

Last week I didn’t get one phone call from my mailers, but what can you say when you only send out 24 of them. And this week there were even fewer lis Pendens filed in Morris County, 19 to be exact. So those 19 got postcards and we’ll see what happens. It only takes one and because of that I will never give up. I spent part of this morning trying to match up the Lis Pendens I was getting …

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 …
