5 Signs It’s Time to Forget About Your Real Estate Search and Build New

Especially when in a sellers’ market like we are now, building new is the best route to take. For anyone who’s been looking at new homes to buy that are listed on the real estate market, you know how frustrating it can be to find what you’re looking for in your price range.

Real estate prices are way up right now, making it the perfect time to buy a fixer upper and create the dream home you’ve always imagined within the budget you’re most comfortable with.

Renovation Realty makes it possible to get the home you want, and the amenities you need, in the ideal location. All at a price you can afford.

Here are 5 signs it’s time to throw your real estate search out the window and start new with a fixer upper home.

  1. You Can’t Find What You’re Looking For

When you’ve been searching for an extended period of time but can’t find what you’re looking for, it’s time to explore different avenues. Avoid headaches, lost time, and lost money by using Renovation Realty’s proven approach to finding and renovating a property instead of buying less than ideal homes that you’re forced to settle with that on the real estate market.

  1. You’re Priced Out

Home prices have drastically increased over the past couple of years. As a result, our money doesn’t go as far. When it feels as if you’re being priced out of the real estate market, consider choosing a fixer upper and renovating it into a home that’s uniquely yours, all within a budget YOU choose.

  1. Too Many Compromises

Sometimes buying homes on the real estate market forces us to make too many compromises. You’re only left with so many choices, and these choices might not check all the boxes on your dream home wish list. When buying to renovate, you can have your cake and eat it too.

  1. Location

To fit your price range, you might have to veer outside your desired location. Renovation Realty makes it possible to renovate a home in the exact location you want. Finding the worst house in the best neighborhood allows you to customize a house into a “Better than New Home”, without the spec builder limitations and costly upgrades.
