Real Estate Rental Property #3 Update (July 23, 2013)


DONE! Rental Property #3 officially closed today, at 11:00 AM (PST). I stopped by my local bank and had the funds wired over to the title company. True, I could have wired the money over using the online service, but that would have cost me $25. By visiting the local branch, I was able to get the fee waived!

In the big picture, $25 is nothing, but why pay for something when you don’t have to? Often times, I think people get too complacent and just go along with whatever the rules are. As I’ve been learning through my experience with getting rejected by credit cards (and having the rulings overturned!), sometimes, all you have to do is ask nicely. You’ll be surprised how often you can get things done on your terms.

This whole process took three months! I’m so relieved it’s finally over… now I’m going to go out tonight to celebrate! 🙂
