There is an interesting article written by Lew Sichelman for the Herald Tribune in Sarasota, Florida. The title, "Homes For Sale 'As Is' Often Means 'As Won't'." the article addresses the reluctance of many home buyers to purchase fixer upper homes, who prefer 'move in' ready homes instead. The piece cites the opinions of several ActiveRain bloggers, including Chris Ann Cleland, Brian England, Sally & David Hanson, Jeanne Gregory, Mary Hutchison, Candice Donofrio, and myself (Myrl Jeffcoat).
