Fixer Upper vs Prime Condition

What is your preference? Why?

(By fixer upper I mean fairly substantial work required to get it to be the house you want--redoing decks, knocking down walls, etc.)

We're searching for a fixer-uper. Partially, that's a financial thing since we're really hoping to lower our housing costs by buying versus renting. But I think we'd want a fixer-uper anyway -- I want to be able to get everything exactly the way *I* want it, not the way someone else did.

This is why we wanted a fixer upper. We just got a really nice house with a kitchen that had been totally redone. But while it's nice, it is SOOO not my style and I don't really like it.

Yeah, I am SO PICKY about kitchens that I'm sort of looking for something where we've got an excuse to re-do the kitchen. A lot of the things that are popular in remodels thee days are like fingers on a blackboard to me (granite counter tops! We hates them, my precious!), so I'd way rather do it myself.

Yeah mine has dark wood cupboards and granite counter tops, where I've always wanted white cupboards with Corian counter tops. The exact opposite of my dream kitchen. :(
