Home Buyers: How to Avoid Paying Too Much for Your Laguna Woods, Palmia or Casta del Sol Home

You may be the sort of person who looks at a home in need of significant work as a challenge and an opportunity to make money. Many people have bought fixer-uppers at below-market rates, invested a little sweat equity or more than a little money on renovation, then eventually put it back on the Laguna Woods, Palmia or Casta del Sol real estate market at a profit.

But if it isn’t priced low enough, you won’t recoup your investment of time, trouble and expense. Before you proceed, do a careful evaluation of what you’ll have to invest and consult with your Realtor® to learn what you can reasonably expect to make when you put the home back on the market. And be sure to include the unexpected—there’s no such thing as a “sure thing.”

This is Tip 11 of a series of 24. Watch Melanie Callahan's blog for upcoming helpful tips on how to maximize your return on investment when you do buy (and later, sell) your Laguna Woods, Palmia, Laguna Woods Village or Casta del Sol home.
