    i own a few businesses, a main one and two joint ventures with other people. About 6 months ago, a builder friend of mine's work stopped. There wasnt a damn thing to do. We bought a few distressed/foreclosure properties for $5k-10k. He put some work in them (another 5k-10k in materials) with my help when i could. I was mainly the money guy. One of the properties we bought was 10k and we put 10k in it. It was a duplex. Today at 2pm, that place is selling for 100K.

    I'm meeting with my boss tomorrow. He's going to give me my End of the year bonus and my first of they year raise. No, there will be no retro pay. There's also a very good chance he will be informing me of a layoff.

    Nice. Anything for $5-$10k sounds like a steal.

    you gotta make sure there are no liens on the property. I almost got burned on a property that had back tax and contractor liens through the ceiling.

    we have a realtor with bank connections. i also look online. If they have only 1 picture of the outside or pictures inside without furniture, make a low ball offer and take a shot. I look at houses from 20-30k and shoot a 10 k offer
