Cracked 3 million which is nice but not too much movement overall. A gain of $12,513 overall due mainly to gains in my stock portfolio and option writing premiums.
I have been very busy with my real estate holdings. I had to switch architects for the home I am building due to them being quite backed up. I am already one month behind where I want to be and got to get things going there.
The brewery has had a soft opening and will do a grand opening next month as they work out small details there. Quite excited to see them actually producing beer, still not bottling yet but should be soon enough.
I have also started a large new project. My cousin is a builder/developer for homes and he is looking to develop in my area. I helped him secure 2 properties where he will be developing houses on each. He gave me the option of going in on the deals where we would build and flip new homes in hot markets. From extensive research and number crunching I calculate potential returns of 20-30% on investment for a time period of minimum 9 to hopefully max 14 months. Minimum investment is 200k. I am thinking of coming in for around 500k total. He is quite experienced and he has been doing well for years. Yes it is risky if real estate markets tank but the projects look like no brainers for me and him. I have not put any money into it yet as I have a couple of months decide as that's when the properties close. If I am going to get in I am going to need some money from somewhere obviously. I think I will sell my warehouse or find a mortgage on my 667k rental home.
Next month I have to pay for property taxes on all my properties which is gonna be a good chunk of change so I anticipate a dip next month
Sorry haven't been too active with the blog lately but things are getting crazy for me. Its been constant property hunting, dealing with my Nephew who is living with us, getting my home fixed up to have it in listing shape and all kinds of other things.
Till the next update Good Day and Grind On!
