When searching for a new home, do you scroll past properties that look a little worse for wear? You know the ones, where the carpet hasn’t been changed since the 70s and the floral wallpaper is curling off the walls?
Lots of buyers look for newly renovated or new-build homes due to fear of the doer-upper. If that sounds like you, we’re here to tell you that you’re potentially missing out.
Older, seemingly ‘unloved’ properties may look scary, but they’re often hiding bags of potential.
Here’s what to consider when buying a doer-upper.
At Liberty Blue Estate Agents we have noticed a trend change when it comes to buyers looking for their first home. Previously most buyers wanted a home that was pretty much turn-key.
However, in the past year, there has been a stronger demand from buyers looking for a home which can offer them a project. The result is that older townhouses which had been left aside and looking sad are being bought by buyers who see their potential. These buyers want to invest the time and energy into a redesign and retrofit.
