3 Reasons To Buy A Fixer Upper


As you start the home buying process there are many different types of homes you have to pick from. Many of the shows on TV such as Fixer Upper and Flip or Flop are super popular and have inspired people to want to fix up a run down home themselves. Doing a home renovation takes a lot of time, commitment and patience, but the rewards can be priceless. Balboa Realty, the leaders in Orange County property management will help you buy a home that is waiting to be transformed.

Bargain Shopping 

When you're out hunting for houses, you might come across one that has old charm, prime location and a pretty price tag. Even if a house is in dire need of a update don't overlook it. Think about the home's potential and think of the big picture (not just what the home looks like) is key. What is the land like? Is there room for a home addition? Is the home located in a safe neighborhood with access to good schools? When you do a little discount shopping you can turn a run down home into a palace. You will most likely pay at least 20% less than a home that is in perfect condition and ready to be lived in. Balboa Realty can help you can score a true bargain!

Customize What You Want

Take a minute and think about this - What if you could have a house that was designed exactly how you wanted? When you buy a fixer upper home, you can! Renovating a home is much cheaper than buying an empty lot and building a completely new home. Start by assessing the kind of work the home needs and stay true to your budget so you will come out profitable. Go on pinterest and flip through magazines for home inspiration. When you do it all yourself, you can put your dreams on paper.  Make your dream home come true when you design, create and live in the house you've always wanted. 

Flip or Rent

If you're currently happy and already live in the home of your dream, the concept of buying a fixer upper type home still applies to you too! Buying this type of home might not become your new home for you to live in, but it could be a fantastic way to earn extra income. Consider buying a home that needs work for the purpose of flipping it and making a quick lump sum of money or create a long term investment and turn it into a vacation rental.
