Welcome aboard Atlanta, Philadelphia, and South Florida!
Hello again fellow investors,
It’s been a busy week at myHouseDeals.com. I’m back from San Fran, and my team and I are finalizing something that’s been secretly in the works since September of 2007. Starting sometime tomorrow, AtlantaInvestorNetwork.com, myPhillyDeals.com, and myFloridaDeals.com will become myHouseDeals.com!
That’s right, we’ll be supporting members and compiling wholesale deals and motivated seller leads in three more cities. This brings us to ten metro areas total: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas-FW, Houston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, NYC/Tri-State, South Florida, and Washington DC.
The three web sites mentioned above are currently being operated by my twin brother, Trent Smith. But he’s been so busy investing and running currentforeclosures.com that he hasn’t been able to improve those three sites as much as he would like.
And since we’re always improving myHouseDeals.com, it just makes sense to move those deals and investors over here. Some of the improvements that members in Atlanta, Philadelphia, and South Florida will see include:
– The ability to search for properties based on equity, ARV, repair cost, and asking price.
– The ability to search for wholesale deals and motivated seller leads with just one form.
– More deals! You’ll be getting up to TWICE as many motivated seller leads.
– Easier browsing of the properties. Get a quick glance at the property images and maps all from one listings page.
– Enhanced screening of the deals to weed out over-priced and over-shopped REOs, HUD homes, and bank foreclosures.
– Did I mention more deals?
If you’re a member of one of the sites we’re assuming, this means that you’ll now log-in to your members only area at www.myhousedeals.com/members using the same username and password. And if you wish to inquire about your account, just click on the Contact Us link at the bottom of the myHouseDeals.com home page.
If you’re a member of one of the already existing cities, this just means that you’ll now be able to add Atlanta, Philadelphia, or South Florida as additional market areas on your account. And you can do so at half the price of your primary membership.
As we expand to more metro areas, add more properties, get more members, and hear more success stories, I can’t help but reflect on when I first started the site in March 2005. When the site first launched, its name was HoustonInvestorNetwork.com, and we served — as you can imagine — Houston area investors only.
I was the sole person working on the site’s creation. I had 2 guys in my office working short sales for me, but that’s all they did. It went on like that for about a year. Then, I took on a super star employee named Lauren to help with the expansion to the Dallas-FW area. At about that time, I changed the name to myHouseDeals.com.
And from there, the site just kept growing. And to help it grow, I hired more people, all of whom I’m thrilled to have. We currently have a “crackerjack staff” of 12 people, which includes Travis, Alex, Charles, Liz, Monika, Jessica, Sarah, Dori, Anne, Kate, Kristine, and Rodini. Lauren just left (tear) because she’s pregnant (but congrats!). And we look forward to bringing on Taylor next week!
As you can see, it takes a LOT of us to round up all of these deals, put on webinars, handle customer service, and develop the website. Anyone who thinks I do this all by myself is sadly mistaken! I can’t thank my staff enough. They’re the driving force behind the entire site.
I also want to thank you for your support of myHouseDeals.com. Without valued members like you, we wouldn’t be where we are today. We look forward to providing you with more deals and investing education than ever before. And as we expand, we’ll keep customer service and, most importantly, “deal flow” at the top of our list.
Thanks again for your support. And welcome aboard Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Miami members!
Until next time, happy (and profitable) investing!
