    Retail Strip Center Sold

    You can call it appreciation or whatever you desire. I call it value-add. I purchased a half empty building and filled it up. It was all part of a master plan. When people say "appreciation", my thoughts go straight to something different. I have done a lot of value-add deals with apartments. I...

    New Project... Sorta

    There are a couple of ways. Keep in mind that this is my first shot at this. Plenty for me to learn still. - Look at the comps. Just like you are doing now in your business. - Purchase larger parcels and split. Maybe even rezone. - Buy and hold in the path of development. One thing for...

    Retail Strip Center Sold

    Talk to a commercial lender. The loans are easier to obtain than single family. All you need is for you and the property to meet certain criteria. The debt service coverage ratio needs to be at least 120%. This simply means that the net income is 20% higher than the mortgage payment. You will...

    EXECUTION Dubidu's Execution....Thread :-)

    I might suggest just the opposite. If idea 1 is gaining traction, push full speed ahead with that one. As far as your personal life goes, things tend to happen when you don't have expectations. Live your life with what you have. Allow your flow to happen naturally. Stated another way.... quit...

    GOLD! Margaritaville (I've Bought A Golf-Course!)

    When the course gets so wet that golf cart traffic damages it, we will close. Pretty rare. People don't tend to play in the rain here. Lightning is a biggie though.

    GOLD! Margaritaville (I've Bought A Golf-Course!)

    Travel around the southwest in my 39' motorhome towing a jeep. I have a jeep that is built pretty well but still modifying it. Pulled the rear seat and put a dog bed in its place. Going to Moab, UT next week. Just got back from a week in San Diego. New Mexico, Colorado, and northern Arizona in...

    GOLD! Margaritaville (I've Bought A Golf-Course!)

    Update. We had a good winter season. The majority of our cashflow comes from January through March. Very short season. But the books are filled all day every day though this period. The only exception is cold, rainy, windy days. Sometimes the course gets shut down completely. So we don't like...
