Majority of people buy a fixer upper because of the lower cost and they think they are getting a better deal for their money. Sometime that is not always the case. Depending on what issues the home might have, fixer upper homes can end up costing you more money in the long run. You always want to think of the worst case scenario when thinking about a fixer upper. Some homes it's something as easy as painting and new floors, some homes there could be foundation issues and plumbing leaks. I always recommend getting a home inspection in any real estate transaction. Getting a licensed home inspection to do a top to bottom inspection on the home will give you an idea of everything that needs to be fixed, even the issues you can't see. The positive part about getting a fixer upper is you are able to customize the home to exactly what you are wanting it to look like. The best thing to do is ask a real estate agent the regular value of the home and what comparable homes in the area are selling for. That will give you an idea of how much of a deal you are getting with the home. Contact me for more information about finding your perfect fixer upper home in the Clarksville, TN area!
