5 Bad Reasons “not” to like a house

The wall and carpet colors give you a headache.
A little paint and a neutral-colored carpet or wood are quick fixes. Pay more attention to the layout and use of space than to the color scheme.

Dated appliances in the kitchen.
If the layout and the size are right, you can live with the appliances until you can afford new ones. Who knows, you may even get to like white (but probably not avocado).

Uninspired landscaping.
As long as there is adequate space for your needs, consider the garden and grounds a blank canvas on which you can work your horticultural magic.
Furniture that’s old and worn. Not everyone has your good taste when it comes to decorating; visualize how your things will fit into the space.

Messy rooms.
