Finding Money for "Fixer Uppers"!

Here are eight steps to finding money to rehabilitate a foreclosed property:
 
1.Meet with a Mortgage Prowho is experienced in doing 203k loans and get pre-approved.  You will need to get pre-approved for not only the purchase price but also the fixup costs you expect as well (for example $150,000 for the home and $25,000 for fixup= $175,000)
2.Start house hunting with your Buyers Agent.Your Agent needs to be comfortable and knowledgeable about fixer upper homes.  If this is not a specialty of theirs, you’ll want to find someone else as they will be a huge part of the process.

Tips For Basement Remodeling

First, establish that your basement is free from moisture.  Then you will need to ask yourself the following questions:

1) What activities will your finished basement be used for; recreation, office space, etc?
2) Will you be spending enough time in your new basement to allow for a bathroom to be located on the same level?
3) Would this be feasible in both your design and budget?
4) If your laundry facilities are located on the basement level, is there a more convenient and/or better location to move these facilities as to not interfere with the basement plan?
