I am totally in the minority here, I am under the opinion that anything can be fixed. We bought a total dump of a house and yes it has take a while but it is so worth it. I knew that even thought it was really bad it was going to be perfect for us so I overlooked the smells, clutter,the popcorn ceiling falling down, no door, too many dogs, bad carpets,no walls in some rooms, bad cabinets and the list could go on and on, I knew my house was perfect for me when I looked outside and saw my dd running thru the fields. We are totally about the location. I could literally see myself pulling up in the driveway every day.
