Owning an investment property continues to be one of the best decisions I ever made.

Awesome day already.

Big personal real estate news and success.

Right before Easter I sent my renters a happy holiday note and let them know I was going to be out of communication a few days.

My renters responded saying thank you, we wish you a happy Passover and they plan to send me some happy news.

They emailed me last Wednesday. Opens up with 1 of them recently getting a great new job and them recently getting engaged, how much they love my condo and it has been a special place.

I am waiting for the next paragraph about moving but...

They continue that with the new job they will be in DC at least a few more years, would love to stay and even extend with a multi year lease, as I had present to them when they considered the condo last summer.

I'm thinking, "HECK YEAH", and after a short time period of analyzing the situation and the market, replied saying let's extend the currently lease by 2 years through and including the the end of July 2020 with proposed rent of $X that will be kept in place during that time.

And....this morning we are fully signed off on the lease extension!!!

This is so fabulous. Our lease was set to end July 30 and they had to give me 60 days notice of their intentions (the end of May) and now a lease is extended roughly a month and a half ahead of the game. I can now relax on Memorial Day Weekend, lol.

If it had been signed off yesterday, then it would have literally been de ja vu all over again! A few years ago on April 10, my previous tenant and I also agreed to a 2 year lease extension.

Two of the best moves I have ever made were buying a condo, even while a single guy and keeping the condo as an investment property when I got married. It has really paid off and I burned the mortgage a little back. I treat the condo like a business and have been mostly blessed with good renters and income.

Have you ever thought about buying an investment property? We should talk.

Top of the morning to you!

Have your colleagues, family or friends ever talked about buying an investment property, whether as a place they would first live in and keep as a rental when they move or buy a place to rent out right away?
I would be happy to meet and discuss the topic with them. Even if they aren't in the market to buy or sell but have a real estate question and want to talk about the market, have them contact me: (301)943-4370, for high service and low pressure. I always gave time for and appreciate your referrals.

Life is good!
