Over the last few years, Central Oregon’s real estate market has seen a lot of volatility. There have been changes in inventory and prices. Anyone looking to purchase a home in Central Oregon has many options. However, if you are looking for a fixer-upper, there may be great deals on properties. Although your initial investment might be small, you can invest a lot of money in the property to make a large profit and then flip it.

Greenbar Secure Storage can help you find a self-storage unit that is suitable for your needs while you are renovating your property. We can store your belongings until you are ready to move them.

Choose a Fixer Upper

There are many options for fixer-uppers. However, it is important to select one that suits your needs. There is a big difference between major renovations and cosmetic improvements. You want to make sure that your house has “good bones” which means that it is sound and there are no structural problems. While you might need to tear everything to the studs to flip the house you can save a lot of time and money by not having to replace walls, floors or roof joists.

Budgeting for your Remodel

A fixer-upper might have a low price tag, but that does not mean the cost of a remodel will be too. Even if the numbers are only rough estimates on paper, it is important to establish a budget for any home renovations. Home remodeling projects can quickly add up, whether you’re updating your kitchen or replacing your siding. You can avoid unexpected surprises by having a clear idea of your budget before you start any project.

Storing your Belongings

If you plan to completely gut your house, you may not be able to live there while you do so. It is possible to not have electricity or water for several weeks. While it can be fun to “rough it” and save money, you may find that the showers are not as enjoyable after a week without them. While you are working on your fixer upper, you could rent a smaller apartment or house nearby. These will protect your belongings until you are ready to move them into your new house. All of our units are available for monthly rental, so you only pay what you use.
