Well, while I was out of town for my Honeymoon -- I finally got a contract on the place. It's not the greatest, and the final numbers show me losing about $5,000 (Unless the buyers try to beat me up severely on the inspection report) -- but at this point I'm glad to get rid of this place. The deal should be closed before Christmas, so I'll be able to write the loss off of this year's taxes -- and most importanly I'll be able to get some of my money back out of the deal, pay everything off, and stop paying these insane interest payments every month.
Once this deal is closed, it will be time to re-evaluate the business, re-evaluate goals, and regroup for the future. This will be the first deal I've ever lost money on -- and as someone posted in a comment on my last blog --- I need to learn from this, and not let it deter me from future deals. It's not like Donald Trump has never been involved with a bad deal, or never lost money on a deal... Tomorrow is a new day, and lessons that cost you money are sometimes some of the most meaningful lessons to learn.
