Older housesAround the areas I'm looking, there are a lot of remodeled older houses built in the 1950s and 1960s. Are there disadvantages to buying a house this old? I know copper plumbing might be an issue. However, I figured if the house is remodeled it shouldn't be as bad.The only other thing I can think of is someone might have died in the house. It's something that could be a deal breaker for me depending on how the person died inside. I would definitely ask the seller this.July 18 2012 - US00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
