Tips on Buying a Fixer Upper

Blog / 12.06.20170 comments

Let’s say you’ve been looking at houses, and you found a house that you love. The only problem is that the house is terribly outdated, or is in need of major repairs (think new roof, broken air conditioner, or a nonfunctional water heater), or is just plain ugly in its current form.

As with all real estate decisions, there are advantages and drawbacks to buying a fixer upper. Whether you’re planning to renovate your way to your dream home or using the property as an investment, here are some steps to take to prepare yourself for the project ahead.

Check the Zoning

You need to the zoning requirements for your home in order to get an idea of what renovations can and can not make to your new property. Having a huge lot that offers room for a home addition won’t be worth much if the zoning prohibits it, and a historical landmark home requires a number of extra bureaucratic hoops to jump through before you start making any big changes. To determine the zoning requirements, meet with your municipality and they will be able to walk you through the regulations regarding zoning. Your real estate agent can also point you in the right direction.

Q: What made you become interested in real estate?
A: When I was a child and we would drive by a home I liked I would try to calculate how much money I would need to earn per month in order to live in that particular house.  I would realize rather quickly that I wouldn’t be able to earn enough to buy the home, mainly because I was only ten.  Owning a home was always my dream, and it makes me so happy to be able to help others achieve that dream.  Purchasing and selling a home are important life events and I sincerely feel honored when someone entrusts me with the task.


Beyond the Zestimate: Best ways to determine a home’s market value

Blog / 05.06.20170 comments

The popular real estate website Zillow has served as a resource for sellers, buyers, and real estate agents to provide information about the market, trends, and individual properties. But despite the company’s forward-thinking algorithms and data collection tools, Zillow is now facing a lawsuit over their estimated market price calculator, known as the “Zestimate.”

The lawsuit, which alleges that the calculator serves as an unlicensed property appraisal and has had a negative impact on the real estate market due to its inaccurate estimates, highlights the difficulties of a non-expert in real estate markets when determining the value of a home. The same way Zillow doesn’t factor in a house’s condition or upgrades, a layperson looking to buy or sell a property can’t always tell how one property stacks up against others in the area beyond square footage and the number of rooms.

So how do you figure out the fair market value for a property? SetSchedule CEO and real estate investor Roy Dekel shares some advice.
