Thinking About Buying A Large House Houston Riverside Terrace Need Remodeling Ideas
 
I am thinking about buying a 1940s 9000sft Home in Houstons Riverside Terrace for $250k it needs alot of work. I just wondering what everyones thinks would it be worth it to buy it & put $150k to $200k into it. If you think it is worth it what you do to the house when your remoding it. How much do think it would cost to do a nice remodel to this 1940s Homes I am not looking to go way overboard on the remodel? Never had a home remodel so this would be new to me

You would need to access the houses worth based on it's location before and after the renovation. How much you do and put into it would also depends on your plans for the house. Live in or sell?
