Buying a Home: Why You Need a Real Estate Attorney

When I bought my first home, I basically signed whatever was placed in front of me. The idea of becoming a homeowner overshadowed any concerns that I might have. Besides, the agent seemed to know just what needed to be done. It was only later that I learned there was some confusion about the location of the property lines. Two years and several thousand dollars later, I finally got things straightened out. When I bought my second home, you can bet that I had a real estate attorney by my side. Everything was checked and double-checked before I signed anything If you are thinking about buying a home, take nothing for granted. Let me tell you more about my experience and why you need your own legal counsel. In the long run, you'll save a lot of time and trouble.

3 Reasons To Buy A Fixer Upper

If you are looking into local homes for sale, then you are likely realizing just how many different homes options are out there. You have your brand new homes that come with all of the bells and whistles and a price to match, you have your older homes with a lot of character, and you have those homes that are in need of a bit of TLC. While any home that you purchase can be made into a great home, you actually may want to consider purchasing a fixer-upper. This article will discuss 3 reasons why you should consider going this route:

Affordable Price 

Perhaps the best reason to choose a fixer-upper is the price. Because the home is older and isn't in great condition, it will cost you substantially less than other homes on the market. This can allow you to get a lot more square footage for the price. This is perfect if you don't have a large budget, but need a home that is larger in order to meet your needs. Also, because some fixer uppers are foreclosures, you can pay even less than you would if the home was being sold by the owner of the home. However, keep in mind that if the home is being sold as a foreclosure, it can often take a lot longer for it to process than a regular sale. 

Flip Potential

If you are interested in getting into the business of buying and selling homes for a profit, then purchasing your first flip home is an excellent way for you to go. It will be a huge learning experience for you and will allow you to get your feet wet in the world of buying and selling real estate. You will want to quickly update and renovate the home, so you will need to be sure that you have enough room in your budget to do these things right away. Then once the home has been updated, you will turn around and sell it for more than you purchased it for. You will then repeat this process again.

You Can Make It Your Own 

When you purchase a fixer-upper, you will quickly realize that it has so much potential. And, since you will be ripping a lot of things out and staring over, you get to make everything your own. This is great because a lot of the time you are stuck with the things that the previous owner chose because you likely paid so much for the home initially that you don't have enough room in your budget for the changes. This is not the case with a fixer-upper.
