Nowadays more and more people are excited to see the “fixer upper” and “flipped” properties. These have been played up by home improvement shows and articles showing owners who purchase poor homes in disrepair and reconditioning and repairing them to sell them for thousands more. The hosts on TV make it seem simple, but in reality it can be an extremely difficult experience, especially if you have little to no market experience.

Owners who purchase a home to flip often make the mistake of paying too much for the home without considering how much will be needed in the restoration and improvements. This problem shows itself when the owner tries to sell and the value of the home is less than what they’ve put into fixing it up in the first place.

There are homes that can be fixed up, flipped and then sold but you have to be careful, pay close attention to the market, and be able to assess all your restoration costs; if you’ve not had years of experience in this field it would be wise to find someone who does.

If you’d like to buy a home to fix up, contact The Sandi Pressley Team today.
