When you first start looking for homes in Punta Gorda Florida you may find some “steals” on the Web. Homes that are advertised as handyman’s specials. It is very important to look at the neighborhood when looking at these houses. If the homes surrounding the house in question are well maintained and it is a nice neighborhood, then you should calculate what it will take to improve the home to a comparable standard. If the cost of the fixer-upper and the cost of the home improvements is still under the median cost of other houses in the neighborhood and you have the skills or the cash to do the repairs, then buying a fixer-upper might be a good investment. You can then make the house into your home!

However, beware of homes that are extremely cheap in neighborhoods that are in a decline. The home’s price may be not only a reflection of the condition of the house, but of the declining neighborhood.

FINANCING A FIXER-UPPER. Some mortgage lenders will allow you to close on the home with a construction loan and then place permanent financing on the home as soon as the repairs are made. This gives you the freedom to put your cash down on the home to benefit from reducing or eliminating Private Mortgage Insurance without having to come up with additional cash to do the improvements. Your New Quest City Punta Gorda Florida Relocation Realtor can help you find a local mortgage company that can help you with a construction loan.
