What's a House Worth? - To start with, it sure doesn't have much to do with how much you have spent buying it or improving it - at least not in any direct way. People sometimes do $30,000 "improvements" that add just $20,000 in value to a property. Other times a smart $4,000 improvement can...

Real Estate for Sale by Owner - An Opportunity? - The sign reads, "Real Estate For Sale By Owner!" For some investors, seeing this is like finding treasure.

For example, a member could have good cupboards coming out of an upscale remodel that are usable for your fixer upper, saving you the cost of new ones.
