I did not get the rental property that I wanted. The good news is that this process made me much happier! I did not have any should I/shouldn’t I moments through this entire process. I have a couple of numbers that make everything much simpler. Those two numbers are dollars per door and rent as a percentage of the purchase price. When I found this property it was at my dollars per door number and better than my one month’s rent as a percentage of the purchase price number.
I made an offer to make the numbers even better, because why not. Things were looking good and then I was notified that there were other offers. Instead of then hemming and hawing, I just raised my offer to my maximum allowable offer based off of my dollars per door number. So simple. So easy.
I did not need to worry about it. It matched my criteria and I could simply stick to my rules and move forward. I did not need to agonize over the decision. I simply stuck to my rules and moved in accordance with them. Now I get to go look for the next property that meets my criteria.
