FIXER-UPPER STRATEGIES Fixer-upper strategies can apply to both apartments as well as single family houses, but it is particularly well suited to the latter. It can be particularly appealing to those who like to work with their 42 CHAPTER 5 hands and are in a position to live in the house during the fix-up process. Good fixers, in such cases, are properties that are basically sound but that need a lot of superficial or cosmetic upgrade— paint, refinishing, minor structural improvements, and landscape work.

The amount that you can afford to offer for this property is calculated as follows: Resale price: Less: Repair Cost: Overhead Cost: (15% ϫ $150,000) Profit: (15% ϫ $150,000) Purchase Price: $150,000 ($10,000) ($22,500) ($22,500) $95,000 CHAPTER 5 44 If you can’t purchase the property for $95,000, it will not provide a gain to you that makes good financial sense under a buy, fixup, and resell scenario.
