Things about  buying a fixer upper that may surprise you
After showing a great "fixer-upper" home the other day it got me thinking. Hav you ever peeked at a worn-out house and thought, 'That could be something special?'

Here's why your gut might be onto something big.

Diving into a fixer-upper isn't just about snagging a home at a lower price, though that's a sweet perk. The real magic isn’t always visible on the surface, but oh, the rewards:

1) Smooth Sailing

Fewer buyers often mean fewer bidding wars, which might get you better terms and even a few concessions.

2) Tailor-Made

Swap 'standard' for 'custom.' Turn that space into YOUR dream canvas—no more settling.

3) Equity Boost

As you spruce things up, you're not just beautifying; you're adding value and watching your home's worth climb. Cha-ching!

4) VIP Pass to Prime Locales

Those ritzy neighbourhoods? A fixer-upper can be your golden ticket in without the gold-plated prices.

5) Friendly Tax Bill

A lower purchase price can lead to a lower tax assessment. Now, that’s a win-win for buyers.

Are you thinking of taking the plunge or just curious about your options? Send me a message! I love talking about all the potential a home can offer.
