Deciding whether or not to purchase a fixer-upper home can be difficult, on top of considering all these things, it is important to talk to an experienced real estate agent and ask for advice. We are experts in the market and can give you valuable insights about desirable neighbourhoods, current market values and projected market values after renovations. We are also experts in determining which renovations and features add the most value to a home in their specific market and which ones to avoid. Your local real estate professional is one of the best tools you can use when deciding whether you should buy a fixer-upper or a fully renovated home. If you do decide to purchase a fixer-upper, you can be handsomely rewarded both emotionally and/or financially when your project is completed. If you have renovated the home to live in, you get a completely customized home that was designed by you and has your and your family’s needs in mind and you have also increased the value for a future sale. If you have renovated the home to flip and stayed within your budget and timeline, you can often make the home worth far more than your initial investment.
