It's no secret this house needs some work. The roof is currently covered by a big blue tarp, which is your first indication that the house needs more than some paint and staging.

Still, think of the potential of buying a home for a little more than a brand new minivan and using the rest of your funds to spiff up the kitchens and bathrooms. Torres Torres
