  Classic Nantucket

An abutting property of one of my clients came on the market. I called him and said Whip, you should buy this - just like in backgammon, when you control abutting points/properties, you are in a stronger position. He said he'd pass for now. In the meantime, he did work on his property and had to get a survey done.

He called me and said what's going on with the property. I said it's available, let's do it. He said, let's do it. So, we did it. He said, after we close, I'll tell you why I'm buying the property. We closed and he said aren't you curious? I said always. He said his $5K shed was on the abutting property and he didn't want to deal with moving it, so he bought the property. $1.5mm property because of a $5K shed - gotta love it. Welcome to ACK! Market continues to move – a property just sold for $5mm on Washington Street! Off to the land of no zoning next weekend – will report bACK.

The great thing, there is beauty in everything, just some more then others but let all be equal and to each of their own. I personally like to live on this beautiful Island and make it happen daily with my blood brother. Wheeling and dealing making it happen for all the clients that swing by our doors at 19 Centre.

Seller (not listed new construction) is approached by a JPFCO agent. The JPFCO agent is working on putting together a deal with the Seller and a Buyer. The deal is the Seller (NL) won't sell until 2018 but a Buyer is saying "I don't want to miss '17 summer on the Rock." Team JPFCO comes up with a plan for the Seller to lease the house for market rate to a Buyer but with this lease there is a ROFR for the leasee. Deal is done and the future looks bright. Let's make it happen!!!

Well, once again I fooled myself. I thought this real estate fund would be a 'piece of cake.' But, no way. Getting investors? Not a problem. Finding properties? Tres diifiicile. Of course, I could put investors into pieces of junk, but I can't do that and I don't want mail- call, or anything, for that matter, with Bernie Madoff, who does, by the way, get his correspondence at the same time and same place as Alan Stanford of Antigua B.W.I. fame. Crime pays? Hmm. Okay. Pick the location. Not a problem. But other people have ferreted it out as well. So, the question is. How do you get good, or maybe, great properties at a discount? I'm working on it.
