rental: Nervous and excited about my rental purchase - 06/30/14 03:36 AM
I hate to admit this but with the closing on my new rental home fast approaching on Wednesday, I'm feeling a bit nervous as well as being very excited as well.  This is the first home I've bought that needs some substantial improvements (windows, removal of add-on room) before I can rent it out on August 1.  Now I know how my clients feel when they are embarking on the adventure of home buying!
