Seriously, who needs to blog anymore when there are social media options where one can write a few words or merely post a photo? But hey, I’m a chatty person and sometimes I feel like writing a few paragraphs, so here I am.
How you been doin’?
So, the news. No, I haven’t been sitting around eating bon-bons nor have I gotten a full time job (heaven forbid!). When we last left off, I was fixing up the Rockaway house to put on the market. Done and done. Four days on the market and some surfer chick/hat designer/art director snapped it up. I’m now just waiting to close which will hopefully be next week.
So, I started looking whilst in contract because I have to do this 1031 exchange thing for tax purposes. Hopefully since I’m inspired at the moment and have time to kill before closing on the new place (yup), I can explain what the hell a 1031 is in another post.
Suffice it to say, because of said 1031, I needed to find another property to purchase quickly. Yada, yada (again: deserves it’s own post), looks like the next project will be in The Bronx!
So cross you fingers for me that I’ll be going into contract on the 1899 two family frame that needs a whole lotta tender loving care from the basement right on up to the roof!
See ya next time.
