Troy Stavros advises buyers to be realistic. There are many factors to consider with regard to the fixer-upper. Will you be living in the house during the renovation? If so, imagine how you will function without a working kitchen for several months. If living with a hot plate, microwave, and bathroom sink are something you can deal with in order to achieve the end result, then a fixer-upper may be right for you. There are many great fixer-uppers on the market in the Knoxville area – check out www.RealEstateFish.com for more information. I would be happy to discuss your real estate needs with you. I can be reached at 865-599-9444 or email at Troy@RealEstateFish.com .
Before committing to any rehab project try and get a clear picture of what the total project is going to entail before you begin. Chances are there will be surprises along the way. Be sure to build this into the budget from the beginning! Surprises cost both time and money. Be prepared. Being realistic will help your project run smoothly.
