Can You Afford to Buy a Fixer-Upper?

Many homebuyers are drawn to the lure of the fixer-upper. And with good reason, at least on paper.

But the “buy low, sell high” ethos of fixer-uppers isn’t exactly a guarantee. There are plenty of people who snagged the worst house in a great neighborhood and turned it into their dream home. You’re just as likely to find overworked and overspent homeowners ready to run from their money pits.
