The second factor is how much of a fixer-upper you can buy. If you’re thinking of rehabbing a foreclosure, you could see gains of 25 percent or more in a short period of time if you buy the right property, at the right price, in the right location.

It’s seductive to think about buying a home and making a fortune, but until THAT happens, you have to be comfortable living there, day in and day out.

Let’s work on rebuilding America, one house at a time.
