When a real estate listing says "one bathroom restored to original retro look", what is really means is "the PINK tile on ALL of the walls AND the floor was in pretty decent shape (???) so I decided to leave it and just recover the tub". Which really means "sucks to be you, future homeowner who actually likes things from this decade/century".

Oh, and just because countertops and fixtures are "new" does NOT mean that whoever replaced the old ones has good taste.

Just FYI.

I am looking for houses too! My favorite is "Perfect for a first time home buyer" which I think is code for "really small, but you probably don't have that much money or stuff anyway because you've been living in an apartment."
