Many people ask for a fixer upper yet few are willing to do the repairs. By "fixer upper" I mean having to do more then replacing floors and cabinets. Right now Kauai fixer uppers are running from $194,900 to $299,900. Some buyers want to purchase a fixer upper because these properties are priced in their price range. Without realizing that some of these homes cannot qualify a loan and would have to be bought with cash. These 3 homes all have potential for the buyer who is willing to put in the work.
