Buying a new home is a big decision for anyone. There are a lot of different choices that a buyer has and one of them is picking between move-in ready homes or fixer-uppers. There are a lot of benefits to both depending on your budget, time constraints, and skill level, but there are some important factors to consider when making your decision. In a lot of cases, while purchasing a fixer-upper has become a popular option, getting a move-in ready home can save a lot of hassle and financial surprises.
One of the big reasons that people choose fixer-uppers is the ability to customize it to exactly what the buyer is wanting. Fortunately, with a lot of move-in ready homes, there are a lot of customization options that can be installed with very little effort or cost. Some of these can be discussed with the seller and installed before you are scheduled to move in. Chances are though, you won’t feel the need to change anything thanks to the high-end fixtures, flooring, and cabinets that are found in high quality move-in ready homes.
While a lot of people find home renovation enjoyable, a lot of people don’t. They would rather just be able to move into a home and enjoy it without having to work on any drywall. A lot of fixer-uppers can be almost unlivable at first and it can take a long time to finish even the most important projects. This can result in some very uncomfortable living situations. When you buy a fixer-upper, it’s not a guarantee when your contractor makes an estimate. As the home is being worked on, additional problems can be found like water damage that had just been covered up and never fixed. In some cases, there is unknown faulty wiring that can end up leading to a fire. With a move-in ready home, you’re able to enjoy your purchase immediately instead of waiting for your new roof to be put in.
A lot of move-in ready homes are in some of the best areas in the city. They are in the best school districts with some of the lowest crime rates in the state. This isn’t just important when you’re living there, it’s exceptionally important if you ever decide to sell your home. These neighborhoods are also located near great amenities and attractions that your whole family will enjoy.
Move-in ready homes are built to meet your needs with a variety of options. Your sales associate can show you a variety of different homes, so you can choose exactly what you want. Another benefit is that the whole process of purchasing and moving into your home typically takes less time than other types of home purchases. Usually, closing only takes less than a month and a half.
Move-in ready homes have a lot of benefits over fixer-uppers that can save money in the long run. They come with great features that you may not have considered if doing your own home renovations.
