Walk Like a St. Louisan!

It was quite a weekend for me and the staff at myhousedeals.com! We flew to St. Louis on Thursday evening and got back home late Sunday night. We were there for a 3-day seminar that taught us several ways to increase the value we provide to members of myhousedeals.com.

We are currently in the process of prioritizing our “to do” lists. But one thing we know for sure is that we’ll soon be providing an additional search feature. You’ll be able to search for properties that are in the part of town where you’re looking to buy. Examples would be the Northwest and Northeast parts of town. This should save you a lot of time entering certain zip codes where you like to buy properties.

But it wasn’t all work work work! I got to catch up with old friends, visit the famous St. Louis arch, and even meet the president. Here are some pictures from the trip. Enjoy!


Me (right) and my friend, Richard Roop (left), national investing mentor. We talked about the state of the national real estate market and how this is the perfect time to buy and hold for long-term cash flow, equity build-up, tax write-offs, and appreciation. Check out his site at www.richardroop.com.


Me and President Bush. Ok, so he’s an impersonator. Still, that’s gotta count for something.


Walk like a St. Louisan! From left to right: Alex, Elise, Lauren, me. We’re really under the arch. It almost looks like a fake backdrop because it’s so perfect.


Want some? I didn’t think so.


Livin’ in a gangsta’s paradise.


“I’ll be there for you! ‘Cause you’re there for me too.” (That’s the Friends theme song incase you didn’t get it.)


My twin brother was there too. He’s on my shoulders in this pic. Check out his site at www.currentforeclosures.com.

Travis, the lead software developer, couldn’t make it to St. Louis. But he sent a nice email while we were away. It reads, “Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that everything here at the office is going fine.  I snapped a picture just so that you can see what a typical, calm, organized friday I having…..” We quickly cut our trip short and returned the office … to join the party!


Well, that’s all for now. Back to implementing all of the valuable improvements that we have in store for myhousedeals.com. Great things are coming!

Until next time, happy (and profitable) investing!

MyHouseDeals was founded in April of 2005 and has since provided information on thousands of bargain-priced properties with over $7 Billion in equity (and growing!) In addition to property lists, we help investors succeed by providing valuable tools, resources and education. Most of the properties on MyHouseDeals are single-family houses. Many of these properties are wholesale deals, which are for sale by other investors. Others are motivated seller leads, which are for sale by homeowners who are often in a bad situation. These properties are typically discounted by far greater amounts than bank foreclosures.
