Re: Want to Buy..Really Need Some Advice
It's pretty difficult to answer your question because we have no idea of your skill level or the actual condition of the house. Re-plumbing, electrical, and structural neglect and deterioration are all repairable. It just takes time and money. The money, even if you do it yourself, could run from $50 to $100 sq. foot.
It sounds like the house is not livable in it's current state and banks are getting stricter on lending practices. It's difficult to get a loan on a non-livable home plus a construction or remodeling loan.
