Thanks for the kind comments, Greg and Ellen. The closest thing to a real estate investing group was 500 miles from where I lived in ND, so I’m loving all the support and connections I’ve already made in the south.
My goals this year are two-fold: the first was to automate my lonnie deal business in ND so that I could leave it. So far so good, all systems are in place and I’ve got people there selling for me, so the cashflow keeps coming in. I might even continue to buy MHs there since I know the market and can get them cheap.
The second is to generate cash in 2006 so I can buy a park in the next 12-18 months. That involves learning my new market and selling a few properties in my old market. I’m very interested in land/home deals and would also like to continue doing Lonnie deals in GA.
Thinking big will be necessary- I did not appreciate how small I was thinking in ND until I started talking to my friends in NC, SC, GA and FL about what they were doing.
I’m very excited to get started, and I’ll see you all in June.
PS- thank you Greg for your wonderful invitation, we will be in touch!
