Handyman Specials and Fixer uppers – Are they good investments?

If you are the type of person who recognizes a great deal in a fixer uper, you’ll know a great deal when you see one. There are many types of homes to purchase, brand new homes all perfect is what we dream about. But some of the best homes may be less than perfect. Shriveled plants, weeds, wallpaper needing removing, peeling paint, or a cracked driveway are problems that sellers must often fix before their house goes on the market. These homes have the potential of being a great way to make money quickly on as an investor.

Buffalo NY and the Who knew effect

Who really wants to live in Buffalo? A lot more people than you think, and for many varied reasons. Buffalo NY takes a lot of jokes about the snow and a lot of negative press with it being one of the fastest dying cities. Yes people do leave Western New York, but people leave for many reasons. Remember negative press sells newspapers and magazines.

So it is really wonderful to see an incredible article in the New York Magazine, entitled Where the Urban Dream Life is Going Cheap by Adam Sternbergh. Adam asks a very interesting question – What could possibly make someone want to leave New York and move to Buffalo?
