Got the tenant out of my rental condo. Trying to get it worked on: hired a guy who didn't know what he was doing as a handiman. He ruined carpet and other things. Hired another guy who took credit cards as I am totally broke. He did a lot of good work, begged me to release the money to him that the credit card co was holding. He said he was honest etc. Did so...have not seen him since .Carpet cleaners don't return calls, cleaning crew does not understand the words "thorough deep cleaning". Etc. Etc.
In the meantime I have to pay the mortage, HOA, Insurance etc. on it and on my own place. Bounced "checks" for the first time in 20+ years. No money to pay my regular bills that are now due.
I need to spend several days working on the condo myself. This means taking days off from work = no income. Sigh!
"Luckily" I have not done my mileage report for my job for several months so I'm going to work on that today instead of working on the condo. This will get me a few hundred dollars in 3 weeks over my regular commission pay. My commission though will be lower due to having to take days off to work on the codo. Don't know how to pay the bills due now though. Sigh!
Thought the condo would be sold by now. Instead it won't even be ready to put on the market for at least another month. Who buys a condo for Christmas?
Once it is sold (if I can hold out) I will have a bit of a cushion after paying down some credit card debt.
Please pray that I can get it finished up and sold soon.
