I can make do with one that small, but I am more thinking of a bungalow. I want something just under the minimum size for the standard market.

Fixer upper more history and much more fun than something that needs nothing doing to it.

Women: a little touching up
Buildings: A fixer upper which isn't going fall down on my head

I worked with a chartered surveyor so I know that some fixer uppers just need burning down. We went in to one house for £20,000 but it had no floor board anywhere even on the second floor.... it was pretty much mud and bricks. You'd have ended up paying to knock it down and then build it up

Personally fixers, because they have character... most houses now are built to be blank canvass'

Depends on what fixes the house would require. Foundation or plumbing work would immediately rule out an existing house for me. A house with those issues just isn't worth it.

I can do electrical and general renovation, but when there's structural or plumbing (piping) issues I want nothing to do with it.

However, my preference would still be a new home since I'd be able to pick the floor plans and layouts.
