Let us help you find value
In every market, there are opportunities found in unique properties, with the potential to be a future investment and great real estate deal. We can help identify the right options to meet your needs and budget. This may even include seeking out options that others may ignore.
Here are some tips to finding those real estate deals in the Orlando area:
- Consider an improving or growing neighborhood. Central Florida is growing and there are so many new developments and improving neighborhoods. Early entrants into improving neighborhoods can be rewarded for taking a chance.
- Consider a cosmetic fixer. Many buyers shy away from cosmetically unattractive properties (which is why the home staging industry is booming). However, with simple and inexpensive enhancements, you may be able to transform an unattractive home into a beautiful one. Simple changes can add lasting value, like repainting, removing carpets to reveal hardwoods, or making other sensible changes.
- Consider a home with a ‘major’ defect. Disadvantaged properties are less likely to receive multiple offers or bids over the asking price. They are usually bank owned properties offered at really low prices. If repairs and related costs are reasonable, and you are willing to commit to a renovation project, this type of property can be a real estate deal. Cost-effective repairs can reap major benefits when it comes time to sell. While some defects are incurable (like location), they may not affect your personal enjoyment of a property. This is something you would definitely have to think through before committing to, as it may be more than what you’re willing to try, but it’s worth a thought.
