Tips for Buying a Fixer Upper Home

Are you looking to buy a home but faced with budget constraints on how much you can afford on payments? A solution to this dilemma maybe a fixer upper home in the neighbourhood that you would like to live in.

Once you have your eye on a potential fixer upper home, getting a home inspection on the property and hiring a contractor to get an indication of any structural issues, repairs and renovations that maybe required and to get quotes on the costs involved is a smart way forward. Be sure to add an additional 30% or so to the estimated amounts for any other unexpected costs that may incur. Expensive renovations and upgrades include full kitchen, bathrooms, electrical, plumbing windows and repairs to the roof.  All renovation costs can be added on to your mortgage at the time of purchase.
