Fixer-uppers today are the stars of today’s many reality shows on house flipping. We’ve all seen an afternoon show where a Guy Fieri impersonator that’s good at building stuff gets his hands on a rundown townhouse in the inner cities and transforms it into a luxury abode. However, you don’t have to be a Flavortown enthusiast with amazing handyman skills to get a fixer-upper. Fixer-upper homes can also be a great choice for those of us looking for a cheap place to live that has a soul.
There’s just something unique about old homes with their pretty brick facades, rustic trim, and their charming colonnades that simply can’t be found in new homes. And even if you aren’t planning to flip your old home in the future, fixer-upper projects can be very fun and rewarding.
Fixer-upper homes can be an attractive option for those of us looking for our next place to live, and there are many reasons for this.
