My bf and I are in the process of finding our first home. We're torn between:
a) Buying a home in move in condition, that needs no work (at a higher price). We would end up using pretty much all of our savings as a down payment since there will not be any reno needed.
b) Buying a home that needs a lot of work, put down the minimum, keeping most of our savings for reno.
If you don't mind sharing, about how much did it cost you to completely reno your kitchen? If you have a picture, i'd love to see for some inspiration.
I'd love to have everything new, the way I like it, but also want to be realistic. The kitchen is one of my favorite rooms in a home. :-)
Thanks in advance!
