So this is a pretty cool fact sheet for millennial homebuyers, mostly because I’m technically not a millennial but fall under the majority of these categories.
Buying a home is a big decision, and oftentimes in Los Angeles specifically, it’s really hard to find your dream home in your ideal neighborhood within your allotted budget. So millennials kind of have the right idea with being more open to buying lower-end homes that need fixing up.
We live in a time where more and more customization is preferred. Personalization is appealing to consumers. From designing your perfect car to ID-ing your Nike sneakers, it’s an on-going trend. So why should it be any different for home buying? Fixer uppers are the ideal solution should you want to customize the way your home looks. How many times have you walked through open houses on a Sunday wanting the bathroom from one house and the bedroom from another? One house has the perfect amount of storage, but the other one has the open-concept look you want.
Fixer uppers are a great option if you really want to create the house you really want. Yes, it takes a lot of time and effort (and the best contractor), but in the end, you’d probably be more thankful you took that extra time than moving into a home that didn’t have everything you truly wanted.
Point being: lower-end homes have their advantages. Take a chance. Create what you want in your home. After all, it is one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make in your life.
