Fixer upper [buying a house]

What are your views on buying a "fixer upper" here in Switzerland? I am a bit worried the cost will get out of hand, if I give it a shot. What are your thoughts on this matter?

We bought a new house over here which had what we thought was a reasonable "budget" for things like kitchens / bathrooms - however the minute you don't want anything basic the cost spirals very quickly!

Good luck

Re: Fixer upper [buying a house]

If you can find a local handy man and work things out before you start, you should be treated fairly. If you do it through a professional company, you bills will be higher. But keep this in mind, you get what you pay for.
If you ever plan to resell, will it look the same then? If not, your resale price will be greatly reduced.
