The call went a little something like this:
“Listen, don’t worry about all the stuff – just knock $10,000 off the price of the house, we’ll clean up all of the stuff on our own”
Then there was a long pause before the investor on the other end of the line responded with:
“OK, let me see what I can do”
15 minutes later he called back, agreed to the proposal and I closed on the deal just days later.
The day after the closing, we had a team of high school kids from my marketing specialist John Fossetti's football team in there hauling out two dumpsters full of junk. We filled up two entire dumpsters and $1200 later (including labor), we had a clean house.
An immediate $8,800 profit for us…
