What does a fixer-upper entail?

I saw homes on your page that was $375.00, a great fixer-upper.

Good Morning!

As everyone said "fixer upper" can mean virtually anything. It's best to look at the property to determine exactly what they mean.

Good Luck,

A fixer-uper for $375.00 most likely needs a LOT of work. It is the polite way to say 'it's a dump". Each "fixer-upper" is a bit different, but it could be anything from a roof to issues with the foundation to everything in between. I would suggest you schedule an appointment and go look at the property and see for yourself just for curiousity.

It could be a good learning experience for you.

Good Luck!

Everyone's idea of a fixer upper is different. And the price varies depending on where the property is located. A fixer-upper can mean just paint and floor coverings or it could mean that there is no kitchen, no bathrooms, no furnace, no hot water heater, holes in the roof, missing plumbing, mold or foundation issues. For $375, I suspect that the property has some pretty major issues.
