Posted on Thursday, April 5, 2012 at 4:40:40 PM
First-time homebuyers looking to save a little cash may wish to consider purchasing a fixer upper on the West Coast to get more bang for their buck. Home improvement loans can provide a person with enough capital to make significant renovations to the property they buy.
Choosing a home without the latest finishes such as granite countertops, wood floors, tasteful paint and stainless steel appliances can drastically increase the price of a home. DataQuick reported that the average home was listed at $239,000 in February, but consumers might be able to find a listing underneath this median.
Home improvement loans allow a person to design their property they want they want to without having to gut out a house with modern features that may be expensive. Renovate areas such as the kitchen, master suite and bathrooms to significantly increase the value of the property. A home is an investment, and smart decisions can drastically improve a person’s financial status.
Fixer uppers come in all shapes and sizes, locations and can require different amounts of work to improve. It’s up to the individual to decide what type of project they can take on.
