MyHouseDeals Celebrates 5 Years!

Can you believe it? celebrates its 5-year anniversary this week!!

Seems like just yesterday that I was driving along the highway thinking about business when an idea popped into my head.

I said to myself, “I’m frustrated with looking for deals in so many different places. There should be one place where wholesalers can post their deals and rehabbers and landlords can buy them. And I should build it!”

A few days later, I started building the website and after a few months, it went live. At first, the site was just for Houston investors and it had just a few deals and a few members. But it grew exponentially over time.

Now we’re in 15 major cities and we provide info on wholesale deals AND motivated seller leads, plus all sorts of tools and educational resources for new and experienced investors.

But our main focus is still deals. To date, we’ve provided information on 23,051 wholesale deals and 19,416 motivated seller leads with a combined equity of $3.2 billion!

Thanks for making this anniversary possible by continuing to post your deals and buy properties! You haven’t let the real estate “slump” stop you from achieving your goals, and we won’t let it stop you either!

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.
