When I hear the term “fixer-upper” I think about The Money Pit, the 1986 comedy starring Tom Hanks and Shelley Long as a yuppie couple who buy a beautiful-but-seriously-dilapidated old house that nearly ruins their relationship. It makes for a funny plot, but in real life there’s nothing funny about buying a home and discovering that the roof leaks, or the wiring hasn’t been upgraded in decades.
