Would you live in a trailer or old house that needed painting and remodeling?

  • 'quality' as in safe and efficient, livable...very important!


     'quality' as in how it looks, not so much.

  • I actually HATED the house dh bought right before we got married. It needed A LOT of work and was ugly. But, over time with some tlc, I love it now. But, there is no way I could do it again, or live in a trailer. I like a home to be nice inside and out.

  • it would depend on how big the yard is and how many rooms are in each one. those are what we look for.

  • Yes there is nothing wrong with a trailer or an old house. Home is where the heart is. Long as I have my family and we are in good health and have a roof over our head it doesn't matter where we live.

  • 2nd ?..no trailers for me..not for this tornado-alley girl.

    an older home that needed a facelift? sure, as long as it was solidly built and everything still passed inspections.

  • Why do people think that living in a trailer is bad?

  • Like a smelly trailer? Some are nice. I just can't live anywhere that has a misty smell

  • I don't think I could live in a trailer. I think I'd be fine with an older home though as long as it was safe.

  • My important things in buying a home were a nice yard, good schools, convenient location to jobs, and enough space for our large family. We got all of that in a great old house that needed a lot of work in terms of painting and remodelling and updating. We've been remodelling one area at a time and it's coming along beautifully.
