A while back I wrote a post about a flip that my husband and I had been working on.  Well, we are finally heading to the closing table!  After many hours and a great deal of lessons learned, our first flip is coming to a close.  Since we did the majority of the work ourselves, the remodel took lo...

Every time you pick up the paper, turn on the news, or even read the blogs on Active Rain you can't get away from the negative outlook about real estate.  The last year has been bad and it seems the prognosticators have no good news for us on the horizon.  I guess all we can do is to continue to ...

As I have posted before, my husband and I are working on our first flip.  In order to save money we are doing most of the work ourselves.  However, something has started to happen that I never expected.  As my husband and I have been at the property working, people have been stopping to chat, com...

I recently got first-hand experience with the dreadful capital gains tax blues.  I owned a second business for ten years and recently sold it in order to spend more time in real estate.  I had heard of capital gains taxes, but I had never understood how painful it could be.  When we filed our tax...
