Is a Fixer-Upper in Your Future?

The year 2017 marks the 27th year I have been helping buyers and sellers with their real estate needs. As you can imagine, I have made a good number of friends along the way. In fact, quite a number of  my clients are multi-generational. It has truly been one of my life’s best experiences; to help individuals and families make one of the most important decisions ever, that of buying their first home.

Recently, in the last few years, things have changed with the home buying process in such a way that it is much more difficult for first-time buyers to find the home of their dreams. Many have sacrificed and pinched their pennies to save to buy the ideal, move-in ready home, but often find that suitable inventory is just not available or the home price is out of their reach and they need to pay a lot more that they had anticipated. What are the options?

Is a Fixer-Upper in Your Future?

I recently read an article about the upswing in fixer-uppers and where they are located across the country. Just follow the link and you can read it for yourself.

Where There is a Will, There is a Way

If you as a first-time homebuyer are becoming frustrated, perhaps it’s time to think about things differently. Maybe it’s time to consider taking on a project and consider the ‘not-so-obvious benefits’.

Many existing homes have good bones; they just need some TLC, and this is your opportunity to make the home your own. It’s a fact: nationwide, homes that need work will list for less money, partly because sellers often forego making ‘highly desired’ updates, but you can use that and more to your advantage. Would you like to know how?

While there are plenty of negative reasons you may have in mind about taking on a project, I can help you prioritize your renovations, to get the most ROI down the road if and when you decide to resell.

Contact my office today, 708-428-6312, and let me help you learn the many ways you benefit and how I can help you answer this question:
