The "BEST" deal I ever made...

I have been watching this little vacant, yellow building for about three years.... What can I do with this thing??? It's only a half mile from my house and it seems perfect for many small businesses.  I am now in real estate and thought if the rent was cheap enough... maybe I could pull off running my business out of there.  So I start the process of finding out what can and can't go there... I get the zoning requirements sent to me and then I met with the landlord/owner last Wednesday.  She tells me about the place and how coincidental is it that her passed on husband was also in real estate.  I told her of my ideas and maybe just maybe I will put a small coffee shop in there as well.  She thought that sounded good.... So we say good bye and it was nice to meet you... and leave.  The next morning, Inez (the owner) calls me to let me know that a young couple wants the place and they would be there this weekend to sign the lease documents..... The next day she calls .....  :(
SO ... PLEASE... If you want something... DON'T BE AFRAID TO PULL THE TRIGGER!  My good friend told me after this happened to me....
"The best deal he ever made ... was the one he never made"!

My First Post as a Blogger...

Today marks a time in my life that I thought I was NOT going to get to.  Joined Twitter and started a blog... What's Next? is going to be an avenue for me to talk about anything but especially the NW Michigan real estate market. And just "What's Next"?
