House from 1960 and it shows! How much to remodelMy husband and I are looking at buying a house from 1960. It has every original part. It needs new electrical and plumbing. It has a 1200 square foot unfinished basement. I also would like to refinish the upstairs hardwood and make the kitchen more modern for the cheapest amount possible (it has a 1960's cook top in the island). I don't want anything fancy. I just need safe for my kids and updated to an extent for cheap. How far could possibly $20,000 get me? What about $15,000? It may still have an orangeburg pipe as well. Will I need to replace that right off the bat? I need to know if it's worth the fight for this house and how long roughly will it take me to make it all livable.
