Most of the houses in the walkable downtown area of the city I’m targeting are old (70-110 years old) and kinda shitty, so I’m afraid of buying one and putting money (50k? 80k) into it to make it nice. Is this a fair concern, or am I just being unreasonably afraid of being the first gentrifier? Couple new breweries just went in, and I think people will realize it’s becoming a nice area for adults (college town) not just college kid bars. What say you, OT?
