Fixer-uppers an Affordable Option to Home Ownership

By
Real Estate Agent with First Weber Hedeman Group

 

For first time home buyers let me suggest that you should examine the fixer-upper option -- among others -- to get the affordability you seek.

In the past, first-time home buyers were willing to purchase older, more basic houses in an effort to save money and break into homeownership and this continues to be an excellent option 

It is important for first-time homebuyers to remember that by considering a fixer-upper for their first home purchase, they can build equity over time and later move up and later buy their second home that reflects their dream home expectations

Buyers looking for affordability who go with the fixer-upper option should get the home professionally inspected to determine what fixing up is necessary, and certainly not bite off more than they can chew. Even homes that need a basic face lift -- paint, carpeting, landscaping, window treatments and other cosmetic touches -- can come with big savings. Homes that may require professional upgrades cost even less, but the buyer has to weigh the discounted price against the cost of the improvement. If you are in the market in the Green County Wisconsin area let me help you navagate your housing options.
