I hate that song and now you must all share my earworm.

our realistic options are:
1) 1970-80s house that looks like a 1970-80s house for the most part
we'll likely go with new :P and we're actually thinking of moving out of town to a smaller place a bit closer to the mountains. jules, it's where we detoured for gas on our way back from camping, actually!
I love the character of old homes, but not the repairs.
In a perfect world I would own an old home that has been fully renovated (or we have the money to reno it), hubby would prefer a new home. If the new home still has nice character I would be ok with it.

My brother owns a registered historic home built in the late 1800's. It's a money pit.
that's awesome! 100 year old houses here are really close to downtown, and therefore, like triple my price range.
i loved your house!
Awww my house is 12.
I love old, old homes, but they're expensive as all get out once you throw in all the repairs and things. Couldn't do that without a LOT of spare cash.
My parents' house is only about 5 years old, but it's got character. It's lovely. I don't like the kinda sterile feel of some new houses, theirs really looks like a home.
My house is only 5 yr old. I like it.
Cuz I built it myself!
My dad and stepmom's house is relatively new, and I think it has a lot of character. Sammi, I agree with you about sterile new houses; a lot of developments have cookie-cutter houses and I can't stand that either.
My house is an 87 year old bungalow built in 1925. 800 Square feet. I will probably be adding on in the next few years. I want a big kitchen and living room with a fireplace and a laundry room. Right now I have a small washer/drier combo int he kitchen which is no adequate.
I am SO jealous!
My house turned 100 in 1991.
Since you all are so interested in old houses for some really, really strange reason (I'm with Cajun...old houses cost a ton to maintain), by all means place a bid on it! :D
My parents designed and built ours too Cajun! It's pretty cool, it's way bigger and in a better location than anything we could afford otherwise.
My Grandparents house was built between 1425 and 1450. Just to make y'all super jealous.
My Grandparents totally built it themselves too
What's with the whole frozen food thing today?
all right stop, collaborate and listen
Ice is back with a brand new invention
Chatters like chemicals.
my house is old, but lucky for us the person before us did a lot of rennovations and at some point before her someone walled in the porch, so there isn't anything wrong with it structurally that we've found. we hope to put another floor on it eventually, but i definitely will be keeping the lovely old beams in the ceiling and stuff. it was mostly likely someone's little summer cottage, way back when, because our neighborhood used to be a summer neighborhood for most people.
