Can you imagine yourself buying a house like this and turning it into your “dream house?” Sure, I can. I’ve done quite a few. In the city, the suburbs and out in the country. And two things are for certain: (1) you’ll have some surprises along the way, and (2) it will take longer and cost more than you expect.
If you can picture your dream house, go ahead and get that fixer-upper. Talk to me before you buy it and I’ll give you an idea of how much this dream will cost you.
