If I buy a house which is livable in "as is" would it make more sense to do a rebuild or a remodel? What are the costs?

Asked by thechrisarmstrong, Houston, TX Fri Apr 4, 2014

Home was build in 1950's and was updated and added on to in 1980's. Property is not going to be listed.

Depends on the current condition of the home, and size and your needs. If the house is currently in livable condition and can be enhanced through some remodel work then it may work out. If you're looking to demolish the home and rebuild on it depending on the lot size that is another option. We'd have to see it to determine which is the best route, also look at the cost of the improvements as well.

The haunted house on Victoria drive was purchased for $1,105,000.

It was torn down last month.

That 'big water' view apparently was a factor. Something tells me the castle being erected in its place will be valued higher than $1,105,000.

I'm sure you are aware you question can not be answered.

Best of success,

Depends on your particular preference. If you would like to retain the charm of the older style home with modern convenience, your answer is remodel. If you are looking for a location and do not care much for the structure on the land, then a complete rebuild would be in order.

Without seeing it and knowing a lot more we could only guess.
