  • New England Real Estate Carbon Challenge – Restoring the GREEN in Old Condominiums: A Practical Guide!
    While that sounds very promising repairing an old condo can be as expensive as building a new one If you don t have a lot of money for repairs you might still end up with a huge construction loan But if you are creative and innovative enough you may just be in for some good bargain I know because I tried restoring an old Nadi condo in Bangsar and it really broke my budget trying to go green Just as with everything else there are pros and cons to it so read on if you re planning to do exactly this for your condo project Pros You can save up on the down payment While the closing costs are practically the same these old condos are usually sold much much cheaply than newer and expensive condos such as the Park Seven condo in KLCC These houses have outdated electric and water systems most likely so they would really be very very inexpensive Ditto goes for Iskandar region condos You can save up on mortgage Your total mortgage loan won t be as big as when you re buying a new home And for obvious reasons The cheaper the house the smaller the fees and total costs They are usually in very good locations Bangsar Petaling Jaya and New Klang all have potential condominiums that are always in demand to the public Other condo buyers are just not into the hassle of having to work on a condo They want condos that are ready to live in There are old condos in good areas that are a turn off for home buyers because they are a lot of work to do If you invest in them you get both the condo and the good location Cons They may cost you more
