An Update on My Scholarship Recipient

Hello again fellow investor!

As many of you know, I gave a scholarship last year to the valedictorian of the high school that I attended way back when. She’s been busy with school, so I hadn’t heard from her in a while, but it was a nice surprise to receive an email from her the other day. She’s clearly doing well, and it feels good to know that I helped (I know, just a little bit) to make college a reality for her. Here’s the email…


Dear Mr. Smith,

It’s been a long time, but I wanted to let you know how my first semester of college went. I was extremely busy with volleyball and school work. I thought I was busy in high school, but it turns out I didn’t even know what busy meant! It all turned out alright, though. My GPA is currently 3.95 (thanks to one pesky A-). I still have no idea what I want to do with my life, and my major has yet to be declared. I love my school and what I’m learning. Thank you for helping to make it possible for me to be there. I really appreciate it.

Amanda Kitten


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.
