HUD-HUD-HUD, seems like I have been living, eating and breathing HUD owned properties for the last 9 months! They have served me well though, keeping me going during the lean months of the winter and through the horrors of the housing market. All in all, I have met some very solid buyers that are not only looking for deals on HUD or foreclosed properties, but some have mentioned purchasing land or farms for future investment. Selling farms is what I love doing! I get to wear my jeans and boots, walk or 4-wheel over acres of farm land and enjoy the great feeling of being outside with nature.
I met my last buyers at a HUD owned property, who expressed an interest in purchasing a farm. Now, who would of thought on that Saturday afternoon as I stood outside a neglected house waiting for perspective buyers that a few weeks later, I would have a $500,000 deal in contract, paying cash no less? Not I, nor my husband, who was upset that I had once again taken off on a weekend to show houses to people that I had never met before. Well, you know, God works in strange ways and He has answered my prayers throughout my life more times than I can count or remember! I praise Him today for sending people into my life that makes it better and better.
Next time you feel aggravated because you you are being dragged out to show a property that will reap only a small commission that may not even pay for your gas, remember to ask the right questions, keep in touch and you may find yourself with a good deal down the road!
