Update On This Blog

October 19, 2014 · 4 comments

For anyone who’s been following me for the past 6+ years on this blog, I’m sure you’ve noticed that the content updates have dropped off considerably. Part of that is by design — we’ve been doing a lot of blogging over at The Scott Pad — and part of that is based on the fact that we’re so completely swamped with work and life that we just haven’t had much time to keep up the blogging here.

I’ve decided that I’m going to leave the site as documentation of our first 50 flips, but now that we’re closer to 100 projects and have fallen behind in our documentation, I’m going to leave it at that. I have a feeling that what’s happened since our first 50 isn’t nearly as interesting as our first 50, so hopefully nobody will be too disappointed that we’re not documenting every project anymore. Also, over the past year, we’ve started doing a lot of new stuff — wholesaling some deals, partnering on a lot of deals, lending on deals, rental properties, etc. — so keeping up with everything would take a lot of time.

I do plan to keep updating the site with new articles, information about me and our business, industry announcements, etc. And, I have a feeling that when things start to slow down again, I’ll find a way to repurpose this site to include new educational information and content. In the meantime, I hope that new readers will take advantage of the thousands of blog posts, articles and other content that has been populated here over the past 6 years.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more!
