Type(s) of Victory: Got my first deal under contract

Hi, I just closed a deal on my first property. My real estate agent contacted me on a Sunday and said she had a house that had fire damage and the owner was bringing a group of contractors to make bid on the property the next day. She said if could be there in the next hour I could get first look at the property. I grab my folder with all my pre-printed forms and my camera and headed out for the property. I walked threw the property took lots of pictures and made as may notes as possible for rehabbing this property. Now came the hard part the owner said I only had about 2 hours to make the offer or he would let the other contractor come in and then take the best offer. I went back home to prepare my offer. The big factor with this property is that the fire damage was only to 12 floor joist and his insurance company had already done a complete gut job due to water and smoke damage. So the inside of the property was nothing but studs and the outside of the property was not damage at all. Here is where as my mastery training paid off. Only being a mastery student since March 2014. I had complete all my core training and went to Nashville for a rehab boot camp, so with that and having an excellent coach Darlene Smith I was ready for this. It only took me about 1 hour to have my offer ready . This was done by having a complete Scope Of Work per done for a full rehab with pricing for my local area. I did a Scope Of Work in advance for a full rehab so when I found my first property I though it would be easier for me to bid on it. Well all I did was insert the square the footage and added 15% to the cost and was good to go. The property present value was $120,000 and I offered $ 84,000 and the owner accepted my offer and we signed papers with my real estate agent that Sunday evening. Please note that I did have 5 days to meet conditions which was my out if i did anything wrong. I am not sure how many students have a complete Scope of Work done for a full rehab prior to even going out to look at properties but it sure paid off for me. I am putting $ 95,000 in repairs and will have a ARV of $ 260,000 when I am done. Last but not least always be prepared because you never know when a super deal may come by. CRUSH IT!
