What To Consider When Buying a Kissimmee/St Cloud Rehab Property When buying a Kissimmee/St Cloud rehab home the property location, condition, age and after repair value should also be considered. A higher end home will yield a greater return-even if the repairs needed are more extensive.   We sold this lovely 3/2 St Cloud Fl home featuring its ideal location. Just 2 blocks from the beautiful St. Cloud Lakefront.   The couple who purchased it, loved the location.  Over time, they remodeled the kitchen and the bathrooms.  The location is what sold them.  A good long term investment.   Lower end Kissimmee/St Cloud homes have a maximum value; regardless of how much money you spend, a low end home, may not yield the best return on investment. This an issue that Kissimee/St Cloud home buyers...

Instead of differing to the seller's disclosure your agent had you fill out at the time of lisitng, you are sure you can fill in the blanks for the buyer.   THIS IS WHERE THE BUYERS MENTAL CALCULATOR KICKS IN "The roof, electrical and plumbing are ALL ...
