Inexpensive Home Building

Cut through the jargon and nonsense of home building and house construction by starting from zero dollars and trying to figure best-value bang-for-your-buck when choosing construction methods or construction materials. My research might answer some of your questions and at other times perhaps you have the knowledge or experience to post the answers to my questions and thereby help others too. The goal is an affordable and sustainable home for all.

Housing Bubble: More abandoned house construction and home renovations in real estate MLS listings

Abandoned house construction and home renovation

Perhaps as another symptom of the bursting real estate housing bubble, I have noticed more MLS ads where realtors cheerily advertise for you to "finish as you want," not mentioning the implication that some poor soul or unskilled "house flipper" ran out of money and walked away.

This is a clear lesson to avoid over-extending yourself, anticipate cost overruns, and keep rainy day funds.
