Know a good buyer's agent in the Hillsborough, NC area? Especially for fixer-upper, reo, etc

Asked by Yusef Napora, Carrboro, NC Sat Jan 24, 2009

First time home buyers are looking for fixer-upper, reo, etc. Looking for a low monthly payment we can sink some sweat equity into. We've got our eye on this listing: http://www.trulia.com/property/1073504420-210-Faucette-Mill-… but we need an agent to represent us. Help please!

I would be glad to help you as your buyer's agent with this home or start searching for a home that fits your budget.

Yusef - Why have you decided that fixer-upper and REO properties are the best option for you? We are experiencing the best market in a generation for first time homebuyers - even here in Carrboro. Interest rates are astonishingly low...and may go lower. Sellers are learning they must present their properties in pretty great condition and very reasonably priced to get them sold in a timely manner. You can take advantage of the government offered tax credit (which might end up being non-repayable) to get into a home. Do yourself a favor and look at all your options, including in the prime housing market. You might be able to spend your time (and money) on decorating your new home and having friends and family over to oooh and ahhh over your new digs instead of painting and repairing! Good luck!

That is a solid fixer upper for sure! Do you have your financing in order yet? It might be tricky with this home due to the amount of work needed.

I'm happy to get your some information and get you in touch with a lender who might have some alternatives for you!
