Do you know what you asking?

There are just too many variables:
I would bet that if you had 10 Contractors visit and give you ideas and estimates you could go from $100 to $500,000 and this wouldn't be something where you would want to take the LOW BIDDER!

Are you sure you want to undertake this? Why not look for a house that better meets your needs?

Good luck and may God bless

If you are trying to purchase a home that is in need of alot of repairs and overpriced, you may need to have your agent negotiate with the seller, or move on.

It 's the "norm" these days, that homes are being sold "as is". Many times meaning just that. No repairs.

Have your agent run a Comparative Market Analysis for the area to see what the market value is. If it's tha overpriced and won't appraise, it's moot point to stay with that home.

Hi Eric,

Posting on Trulia might get you some good job there. Maybe make up a flyer/coupon for free estimates and distribute to real estate offices or send by email. Put together a presentation and/or website with before and after pics also stating amount buyer paid for the results. Those are a couple of ideas.
