It seems a little dated to me. If it fit all of my criteria, then updating it wouldn’t hold me back from purchasing it.

Not a fan, honestly. I think it’s mostly the outside I don’t care for; it reminds me a bit of a barn. I do like the layout of the kitchen but I don’t think this is somewhere I would live unless I could get it very cheaply.

Then again, I tend to like things that look very old, so take it for what it’s worth. I don’t think there’s anything objectively wrong with it, but it isn’t my taste. If it’s yours, go for it–I don’t see any hints of structural issues or nasty neighbors or anything like that.

It’s lovely! What state is it in? I love in Florida and got a 4 bedroom, pool a granite kitchen foreclosure for $182,000 a year ago. I’m very happy with it! My question to you is, is the house a good value for its location? Houses are still undervalued but I don’t think we will see them go up in value the way our parents did. It’s a lovely, beautiful house and I think you could make a wonderful home there!

@Jw1724:  I don’t like split level homes so I would pass. Love that 3 season room tho!

I think it looks like it’s in really great shape! I don’t know what your priorities are when it comes to that stuff, but I know that for my husband and I, we’re more interested in our first house being one that we don’t have to do tons of work to (only the cosmetic things we *want* to change). I looove the three season porch and I think it has great curb appeal.

Well, what would you use it for? I dont mean living 🙂

IE, how long do you plan to live there, how many, if any, kids? dogs? Do you like to cook, Do you have money and plan to do any remodel? How near work is it? Is it at the bottom or top of your budget? what are the top to must haves you want in a house and does this house have them?

It’s ok to me.  The outside seems a bit dated, and the kitchen is a tad small, but other than that, the porch and the amount of land sounds nice

It’s a great looking house!  If it’s a bit dated here and there, those are things that are relatively easy fixes.  Have you had anyone look at it to check for the stuff you can’t see (mold, plumbing condition, electricity condition)?  Is it in a good location?

@Jw1724:  If it were me, I’d see how much it would cost to alter the arch-thing. It may be primarily cosmetic, and if so, you shouldn’t let that keep you from buying a house you otherwise like.

Have you seen others you’ve liked?
