Sam Craven Wholesale Deal


Sam Craven Wholesale Deal

Senna House Buyers in Houston, TX
Sam Craven with Robert Craven Mat Trenchard

This was a wholesale deal that came to us from our absentee mailer. There were 3 properties on the 2 lots. I didnt think much of this property, in fact i thought we were overpaying for this deal, but we have a repeat buyer in Dubai that loves cash flow and appreciation and this deal has both of those. Without marketing it to anyone else we sold this property sight unseen to an out of country buyer. We had to do some extra work in setting up contractor bids and providing comps ect, but it was well worth it.
