Move-in ready home or fixer-upper? It’s the age old dilemma that first-time homebuyers have found themselves facing for years. Weighing the pros and cons of each option is just a part of the process.
If you’re in the middle of trying to decide if a move-in ready home is right for you, consider these three significant benefits:
You can move in now. Like the name suggests, your home is ready whenever you are. You don’t have to worry about construction or renovation timelines. The stress of buying a move-in ready home is significantly less compared to buying a fixer-upper home. Your home waits for you—not the other way around.
It’s more up-to-date. Because move-in ready homes are built more recently than fixer-uppers, they typically offer newer designs and technology features. More often than not, move-in ready homes will include open floor plans, high-end fixtures and cabinets, walk-in closets and hardwood floors—all of which are some of the most common renovations homeowners make in fixer-upper homes.
Move-in ready homes are also built to new code regulations, are more structurally sound and include more reliable and functional wiring and plumbing compared to a fixer-upper home. Essentially, when you buy a move-in ready home, you won’t really have to make any upgrades.
Location, location, location. When building move-in ready homes, builders often select areas that are most desirable or are on the up-and-up. Which means, when you buy a move-in ready home, you can feel confident knowing that you will be in an ideal location. This will also help with your home’s resale value if the time ever comes for you to sell.
