The Condo Search - Part One

October 19th, 2007 at 08:35 pm

Last weekend my friend and I went to Gulf Shores, Alabama to look at foreclosed vacation condos. We found a potential buy. It is a 2br/2ba for 169K. I am currently crunching the numbers, but it looks like if we can get them to accept 125K we will buy.

My friend and I are planning to pay cash. I am getting my half from a HELOC that I am currently opening. I believe I can carry the cost for about six months. It is a risk, but I believe we can put it up for sale below market and still make a good profit.

My next post will have the breakdown of the numbers.

    Thanks, we are currently finding out the total amount of carrying costs. Condo fees, insurance, management fees and utilities may it difficult to profit from renting alone. I am going to post the numbers when I have everything identified.
