It is possible to sell any home in any location for a profit if you buy it at the right price. As is true with any investment, you need to understand the market conditions and value of the home today, conservative estimates for repair costs, holding costs such as mortgage payments, utilities, general maintenance, etc., and also the cost to sell. It is impossible for anyone to accurately predict the future of the market so the more conservative you are with your estimates and the more cushion you give yourself, the better chances you have of profiting when you sell. Working with a local real estate professional can help you determine the market value of a home today before you buy. Good luck with your investment and feel free to contact me if you would like any advice on a specific home.
