Fixer Upper Doctor Blog – Day 5

After I paid for Robert Allen’s “Boot Camps”, I flew to California to attend a boot camp on how to buy real estate on eBay. Now, anyone thinking of buying a property on Ebay sight unseen in another state is either crazy, gutsy, or not very smart! I was all three! I ended up buying four properties for around $19,000 in Flint, Michigan on ebay! My husband was kind enough to fly with me to Flint to check the houses out. It really was scary and sad at the same time. The families living in the homes were very poor and one house had a leak from the roof that was dripping rain into the family room! Another house we tried to visit was off limits to us because of a possible drug deal going on! Fortunately, I was able to get out of closing on the houses because the Realtor tried to sell me a different house than the one I bought on eBay!

Prescription for today: It is not very wise to buy a fix and flip in another state sight unseen! And that goes for buying any house sight unseen!
