A hoarder's house (like still full of gross stuff) would you accept?  Why or why not?

I would probably accept but pay someone to clean it.  I don't think I could live in it if I cleaned it myself.  And then all carpet would have to be replaced, everything would have to be scrubbed with bleach (and I'm not a bleach user), and the walls would have to be painted.

What about you?

Mommy to my angel baby (miscarried 6/21/06 at 10 weeks), Jason Josiah (born 6/6/07) who is always pushing to be the best he can be, and my VBAC baby who tested my patience to no end by being 15 days late Delaney Abygail Grace (born 4/19/10)

I agree with you and having ALL that done would be the ONLY way I'd take the house.

Yep! We would just clean it up,and Dh can fix and repair almost anything.And even if we dont live in it ourselves,we could always rent out or sale.

depends on house and location. if  the house is saveable i would try to clean as much as i could and call the 1 800 got junk guys to help. if it was more hassle then was worth i might try to donate it to a charity and take the tax write off instead..

 I can not watch that show, I think that it would have to be cleaned before I see it or i couldnever live there.

I would only if it wasn't nasty trash and I could restore it.
