When I was a first time home buyer, I was a little aprehensive about purchasing a fixer-upper.

But, since my husband has plumbing, electrical, and other construction skills we decided to go for it back in 2004.

Here is what the outside of my home looked like initially:

Orange County Fixer-Upper Home

Here is how it looked once we were through with the updates:

So, how do you know if you should purchase a fixer-upper house? 

This chart from Realty Toast may help you decide:

As you can see, many factors need to be considered before you purchase a fixer-upper or any home for that matter.

If you recently purchased an older home and need help deciding on what rooms to update, please consider contacting Kate’s Home Staging and Redesign for some honest and cost effective design advice. 

Kate can be reached at (845)538-3623 or by email at kate@kateshomestaging.com.

Good luck with all your home updates.

As a professional home stager, my client’s are always concerned about the ROI on any home improvements.

If you are planning on selling your home in the near future, it is always a great idea to consult with a professional home stager and Realtor who is familiar with the area.

Remember, the best time to have a home staging consultation on your home is 1 to 3 months before your Realtor posts your home’s pictures online.

Call Kate at 845-538-3623 to setup your staging consultation, our prices start at $125 for E-Staging and $150 for an in-home staging consultation.
