Last November I bought a house that was in foreclosure for $43,000. It was listed for $46,000. At first glance that doesn't seem like that great of a deal. I locked it up within a few days of it being listed. Here is why. It was listed as a two bedroom. Most people want 3 or more bedrooms. Also, it was located in a nice up and coming location. When I got there I found out there were 2 more bedrooms upstairs that they weren't counting. When I asked the listing agent why they weren't counting the 2 bedrooms upstairs she said "we can't count the upstairs as livable space because there are no heating or cooling ducts running upstairs." My banks appraisal showed the same thing. I was thinking in my mind "YES!!!" After I closed on the house I called a guy that installs heating and cooling ductwork and he ran the new ductwork for $500. Now I just added 600 square feet of "livable" space to a house for $500. I asked my realtor how much more money I would be able to get for 2 added bedrooms per square foot over and above non-livable square feet and she said about $50 more per square foot. 600 times $50 is $30,000! That is just one way to "THINK A LITTLE DIFFERENT."
You've got to find your obstacles and call them out! Unsheath the sword, and do battle with whatever it is that holds you back!
