End of July and Getting Ready to Buy

I’ve started using one of my actuarial goal journals in a new endeavor. I’ll be using it for a real estate goal. My 15 week goal, that I started 18 days ago, is to make offers on 10 properties AND EACH offer having greater than or equal to $200/month in projected cashflow AND in 5 different areas. My last couple of days I’ve had mini goals of making connections in random areas and I’ve definitely made some connections. I’ve made calls to property managers in different cities in Utah, Idaho, Mississippi, Alabama, and Alaska so far. Obviously it’s tough to get a deal in this market but I will keep trying and being patient. Now that I’m a married man and the roommates are leaving I need to find a source to fill the missing revenue from the missing roommates. With that let’s see where the numbers are at.

Analysis Intelligence

The Opening NW in the 7/31/2021 column is the closing NW from the 7/20/2021 column. The green numbers represent estimated changes to my net worth in those categories (green numbers in 7/31 column are the changes that I estimated on 7/20). The white “Gain from” rows show how the actual numbers turned out compared to my original estimates, ten days prior. Bitcoin is popping up again really creating some ripples and it appears the Zillow Zestimates have been stagnating finally. Are we at the top for housing, finally?

Ideas for increasing NW/Learning

  • Revisit Tax Liens
  • Start analyzing how affiliate programs really work
  • Instead of relying solely on Amazon to sell my book I’m thinking to sell the books on my website as well.
