Helping consumers make decisions
Hand holding is common in the real estate practice, and helping make small and large decisions comes with the territory. A rising trend in real estate buying leans toward fixer uppers or handyman specials.
This trend began with the DIY invasion on cable tv channels and is now fueled by the low prices of foreclosure listings that need some tender loving care by an investor or buyer.
CreditSesame.com put together a flowchart to help consumers decide whether or not they are cut out for do-it-yourself purchase. The flowchart appears to be a little tongue-in-cheek and would probably be better made by a real estate insider, but it gets people thinking beyond the glitz and glamour shown on tv.
