Minor Panic Averted

"This place is a dump!"

Not at ALL what you what your Father/Realtor say when checking out your possible dream home. Dad checked the place out this morning, and when the Missus and I met for lunch today I had to call him.

Not good.

The house that looks so cute and perfect from the pictures is actually junk inside. The paint is new, but not done particularly well. The hardwood floor is actually cheap laminate. Nothing in the house is actually replaced, it's just been painted over. The door between the outside world and the finished basement is hollow-core. This suddenly ramshackle mess also turns out to be about 25 feet from the busiest street in the city.

I guess we won't be putting any sort of offer down on this one.
