Yikes Kathy! Or as Steve Irwin would have said "Crikey!" I wish I saw your question sooner! Yes, fixer-uppers sell and are in high demand. But like everything else, the right price, marketing, and guidance are absolutely critical - now more than ever!
There may be other considerations that may not be so obvious.
I'd love to discuss further. Feel free to contact me directly - 718-446-1300 x.309... more
Simply put, if your home's selling price is over $500,000 a homeowner pays a total of 1.825% of the selling price in City and State taxes. If it sells for under $500,000 then the amount is 1.4% of the selling price.
The first thing you need to do is to have a current evaluation made of the property's value. As you local Realtor, I would be happy to provide it with no obligation.
