So….I have a handshake agreement for my first land sale. WHOOP!

Thank you Kevin!
My offer letter for this property was for $1000, but this is one of those properties that I’d not go over $500 for. It’s out there, and looking at the deed from the last time that it was sold to this owner (the minor), it states that the sale price at that time was just over a grand.

Baby is 3 months old now, and the big…[Read more]
What service are you using for your box?
I’m gearing up and need an address! 🙂 I REALLY like the idea of being able to google it first to see where it will appear to be when others google it.
So I know from reading the forums that A LOT of questions revolve around ‘getting started’, but I was not able to find anything answering my particular questions…
Here is my situation –
I am going to finance my land business initially with my tax refund…waiting on that to happen, but due to my not changing my information with my employer…[Read more]
My name is Gerd and I have done a bit of lurking as of late, I really REALLY like the feel of the community here! Everyone has done a great job to make this a working forum, and most everyone seems really nice. Sometimes that is tough to find these days.
