Finally, spring has sprung and so the next step of the grand plan is executed. The last step prior to listing was installing that retaining wall from a single tree. The long section is 40′. My brother, his son, and I got it done in a day. It would have been easier had Dave remembered to bring his pushing chains, rather than only the pulling chains for his F-250.
I have two For Sale By Owner listings up, so far.
I’ll probably do a couple of other listings, perhaps Redfin and ForSaleByOwner. Any experience with those or anything else, please drop a note in comments.
I’ve done a simple description because ultimately, it’s the location and the photos—and then a visit.
Our former vacation home since 2003. Extensive rebuilding and remodeling in 2003/4 after a significant fire (all electrical, plumbing, and structural updated to code). From 2011 – 2015 it was one of Arnold’s most popular vacation rentals, generating an average of $30,000 revenue annually (documentation to prove it).
The home is being offered completely furnished and equipped. By that I mean that it could be immediately occupied with no move in or investment. It could be rented as a vacation rental immediately. If a second home, bring clothes and toiletries. That’s literally all.
Additionally, the association has a very nice swimming pool, open from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
It’s great for two seasons. Snow in the winter (a ski resort 30 minutes away) and wine and Gold country in the summer and fall.
Also perfect for family holidays. It will sleep up to 14 without sleeping bags on the floor.
So, that’s about it. My follow-ons are as follows. I’ll write posts in more detail in due time.
- I’m speaking at The 21 Convention yet again. Fourth time. But guess what? This time it’s in Warsaw Poland, mid-July. Frankly, it’s an anti-Feminism conference. Be sure to check out the short promotional video at the above link(s). I’m making it a Euro tour. I’ll be headed from Warsaw to southern Spain to hook up and auto-tour with an old Navy buddy who lives there.
- I’m going to build out my own RV, Sprinter Van style, only using the long and high Dodge platform. I’ve done tons of research. It’s the best for this application.
- Then I will be traveling the US to scope out land on which to build Shipping Container Homes. I’ve done lots of research there, too, but my designs are basically four-40′ containers, about 1,200 square feet total, done in loft/industrial style.
OK, that’s all.
