The movie, The Money Pit, featuring Tom Hanks and Shelley Long, is a wonderful treasure to have in your movie collection. With its comedic tale about a couple struggling to fix up the house they bought, making the title, The Money Pit, fit nicely.
I like this movie personally, but who doesn’t love a movie with Tom Hanks. What I really like about this movie is that it is a realistic story plot. There are hundreds of people who purchase homes that end up becoming money pits. If you are in this situation, you aren’t alone, this happens to a lot of people.
If you are reading this, and are getting scared off from buying a fixer-upper, don’t rule it out just yet. Believe it or not, it isn’t as scary as you may think. The high-end finishes you want in a home, most likely is not in your price-range, especially if you want a move-in ready home. But if you purchase a home that needs a little TLC, you can put these finishes into your home, and customize it to your personal taste and style.
This can increase the value of your home, and you can sell it down the road and walk away with some serious cash!
