I would buy it.
I would buy it.
If I thought I could cope with the inadequacies of the house for the amount of time it would take to be able to renovate it then I would buy it.
If renovating was an indefinite period of time away and the house would make me miserable to live in then I would keep looking.
Thanks for the replies guys! Usually I am so decisive but I am so in two minds about this. Actually last weekend I talked myself out of it so DH and I went to look at display homes to build our own house. Then here I am a few days later thinking how wonderful it would be to live right behind the kid's school and in such a great neighborhood.
DH and I aren't much into renovating and have limited funds but yes, we could look into it in the future.
Once again thanks you for your replies
Can the house be renovated and will the money spent on renovation yield a better return if you were to sell? Is there an option to demolish and build your dream home on the block? What is the market like in that area? There are so many questions.... A nice house in a bad area can be a massive PITA too!
We bought for location a year ago and while I love the setting the house is really getting me down esp now as its winter and the house is badly designed. We have plans drawn to renovate and extend but I am currently carrying my second due at the end of the year and I am dreaming of moving back into my other house with all the mod cons every day! It will be a hard slog to renovate this one but I just keep telling myself it will be worth it in the end. We do have the funds to renovate and the time.
