Not alot happening tonight so I thought I'd do a quick post.
Not a fat lot happening on the poker this week. Probably done about £50 on MTT's without getting close but my chest has cleared up and I'm feeling alot better.
One of the things about working shifts is that you get a fair few days off in the week and I have become hooked on Homes Under The Hammer over the past few months (where they see how much different properties go for at auction and what the new owners do to them before selling or renting the property out and what profit was in it).
It has got to the stage where tbh I want to have a go at it. Given that you are getting jack shit on any savings and there are some bargains to be had, even though house prices have probably not got as low as they will yet, it seems like there could be a few quid to be made.I have worked out how the financing works on auction properties and that you remortgage once the work is completed and though I wouldn't be interested in anything major regarding refurbishments, a lick of paint, new kitchen and bathroom (potentially having to move the bathroom upstairs) etc seems the way forward with a terraced house etc.
One slight snag with my master plan is that I don't come from a building background so fitting a kitchen and bathroom could be tad difficult especially when I have to google how to change a fookin light bulb. However with mates in different trades I am planning to get a couple of them to put a few bob and their expertise in to see whether it can be done. Going out with a few of them next weekend for an all dayer so I reckon I should have a 10 minute window to sell the idea before the first shots go down and everything goes to rat shit.
There are probably still a shed load of things I need to consider but I went to see a terraced house yesterday which an old dear had had which has a guide price of £35-£40k and have searched the prices of houses sold on the same road and they were going for £90k 12 months ago. Even with the downturn they won't have lost 50% so even if things don't happen straight away I reckon the idea itself has its merits.
Oh well just thought I'd post it to look back on in 6 months and see whether I have got my finger out my arse for a change.
Whats the difference between woman and a condom............
Fuck all.. When they're not on your cock they're in your wallet.
Shit but the best I've got.
