A friend of mine called me up the other day, and asked if I'd like to work a couple days with him. At $20/hr, and currently looking for work, my answer was obvious. Hell yes.
I've know this friend for 12 years now (he's 28), and I never get tired of talking to him. We're sitting in his work truck, and we start talking about his goals for the next three months, and he grins a little and tells me this:
1) I'm going to sell my rental property for $235k next week. I bought it 5 years ago for $145k. Selling to my tenant. No agents :)
2) I'm taking the $75k I intend to net after taxes, adding $115k from my savings, and paying off my primary residence. (He owes $190k, assessed at $290k)
3) I'm getting a HELOC for $230k and I'm going house hunting so I can start flipping houses on the weekend.
