House hunting

No, I'm not moving! :) My folks are looking for a new house. I toured one with them this morning that's not too far from my place. It was built in 1968 and looked like it still had just about the original everything! Bright turquoise countertops in the kitchen with a double Hotpoint wall oven. Cracked and missing linoleum on the kitchen floor and threadbare carpets throughout the rest of the house. The backyard was filled with berry vines and grass higher than my waist! It looked like the only thing they did to the house since it was built was to paint the main bathroom...black! Black walls, black ceiling, and a red countertop with a couple spotlights shining down above the mirror. Very nice! lol I need some black paint. They're asking way too much for all the work needed on that house. Needless to say, pass, they'll keep looking.

Why are they moving (if I may ask)?

lololol Therein lies the question!
Mom says the house is too small. She wants to do more entertaining and their living room is too small for several couples at once. Dad says she's got too much junk and he can't use the garage for his woodworking & other projects. She's a packrat and Dad would toss it all! I take after Mom in that regard. :(
It's right across the street from the school so they shouldn't have any trouble selling theirs. It's more a matter of finding one that they like and can afford.

I think they were asking market value without any upgrades done since the house was built in 1968. It looked like everything in there was original equipment when they built the house.
