Of course when asked the question “What’s So Great About A Fixer Upper?” I’m just a tad bit biased lol. Was my Grandma’s house a ridiculous amount of work? Absolutely. Did I give up bucket loads of blood sweat and tears for this place? Absolutely. Do I have any regrets doing this myself? Not a single one. This article mentions how DIYing a fixer upper can literally give you the home of your dreams and that is just so incredibly true.

Because I was willing to do all of the work at 30 years old I moved into my dream home. Otherwise, I never would have been able to afford it.

And the fact that this home was my Grandparents’ house just made it that much more meaningfull. If you’re willing (and capable) a fixer upper can literally make your dreams come true!

Fixer-upper homes are currently a popular investment in the housing market, and partly because they’re typically sold at about 8% below the market value.

With so many young, first-time, home buyers looking to get the house of their dreams at a low price, it’s no wonder that these kinds of houses are becoming so hot.

Whether you’ve inherited an older family home or simply want to purchase a cheaper house in need of some love in order to flip it, there are many great things about fixer-uppers.

You Can Earn More Money Back

If you’re in love with DIY, chances are that you would probably invest in lots of small flipping projects even if you purchased the perfect home.

You can avoid paying all of that money for a newer home and instead invest your time into a really unique, perhaps even vintage-style home, where you’ll be able to truly DIY the renovations without fear of going over budget.

Not only is this a great way to engage in your home design hobbies, but it will allow your home to appreciate over time, in order to earn more back in the long-run.

You Can Truly Personalize It

One of the best things about a fixer-upper is the ability you have to truly personalize the space in every single way you want and need.

This means that, for example, if someone in your family needs a little more accessibility to certain areas or you may want to rent out the property further down the line, you can incorporate that during the renovation.

Because you’re already investing time and money in fixing it up, you can install ramps onto the front porch, widen the doorways or even install that stunning yet functional kitchen island you’ve always wanted.

You Will Feel A Deep Sense Of Pride

While you might come across the home of your dreams in perfect condition that isn’t in need of any changes, it’s highly unlikely.

Fixer-uppers allow you to truly craft the home of your dreams and DIY each and every area of the house until it’s exactly how you want it. While it might seem like a lot of work, it pays off in the end when you walk through every room of the house and see all of the hard work you’ve put into every detail.

Fixer-uppers are great if you want to truly feel like you made a house your home.

Enjoying The Fruits Of Your Labor

When DIY’ing a home completely, it’s important to remember to take time to truly enjoy the fruits of your labor. Take time to rest and rejuvenate your mind and body while enjoying the spaces that you’ve worked so hard to renovate and redo.

Before you know it, the whole house will be done, and you’ll be living in a totally customized space you worked really hard on crafting.
