Buying a fixer upper home can be a nightmare, punctuated by a series of unexpected disasters, or it can be a profitable whopper of a deal. The secrets lie in choosing the right fixer upper home to buy and getting it checked out by a host of specialized inspectors.

One of the nice aspects about buying a fixer upper is that the purchase is not contingent on the temperature of the real estate market -- any time is a good time to buy a fixer upper!

Especially if you buy the fixer upper for less than everything else around it. The advantages are obvious:

  • Lower sales price

  • Less competition (not everybody wants a fixer upper)

  • Potential for resale profit

  • Gain repair knowledge, which will help you to properly maintain the home

  • Personal satisfaction when the projects are completed

Remember, if you make a purchase offer at the right price, you make money the day you close. Because the time to think about selling is the day that you buy, even if you have no immediate plans to sell. It will help you to avoid many home selling mistakes on the back end if you avoid home buying mistakes on the front end.


Keep in mind that the these properties are listed for sale on the Northern KY MLS by a Real Estate Agent who works for the SELLER. While it's perfectly legal, and a widely accepted practice in Kentucky, to act as a dual agent (representing both the SELLER and the PURCHASER), it may not be in your best interest as the PURCHASER. See what has to say about it in this ARTICLE

If you'd like to be represented by an Agent who ONLY has YOUR BEST INTEREST in mind, you can learn a little bit about me, and what a few of my recent Clients had to say, by watching the short video below. If you'd like to speak to me personally, I can be reached on my cell phone at 859.620.7653 or by using the "Chat With Us" feature at the bottom of this page.
