Buy a Bigger Home for Less

Most Americans don’t want to live in cramped spaces. There are possibilities to find larger homes for less money. Have a look at six ways to find your next big home.

Look for Sitting Ducks
Homes that have been sitting on the market for more than 30 days are ready for negotiation - get to it!

Look for Grandparents Homes
Yup, floral wallpaper and pink bathrooms included. Buyers with a vision can turn these homes around with some imagination.

Renovate for the Prime Location
Great location you love, but the home is still cramped. Knock down walls, expand and convert. Location is key for some buyers.

New Build Negotiation
Make an offer during the early stages of the build, altered floor plans to save a little money. Modern homes are built with more space in mind.

Bunk Up
Roommates or family members! Hey, they do it in Europe and Asia! Family sharing the expenses will allow you to buy the larger home, you all win.

Search Area Expanded
Look outside your “preferred” area by 5 to 10 miles and you might find the deal of the century. The area you love will always expand out to where you live, then you’ll be part of it!
