Q. Should I buy that gorgeous “fixer-upper” with the 1950s plumbing?


A. Here’s a question for you: How attractive is the price compared to other properties in the same area? If it’s a real steal, you might want to ask if you can bring in a licensed plumber to give an estimate of how much it would cost you to upgrade the plumbing.


This is advisable even before you put in an offer, if the seller will allow it. (Of course, any offer to purchase you do eventually make should be subject to approval by a building inspector, as well.)
