    A cul-de sac is an extended circular area at the end of a paved road in a development. It goes to the last house(s) at the end of the drive so cars can easily turn around and head back out. It's basically a "turn-around"

    TLC means tender loving care. It means the property just needs a little touch-up repair and a steady maintenance program.

    Fixer-upper basically means "as is," which means it is in need of a lot of repair and fixin' up.

    A cul-de-sac lot is one at the end of a road that leads in off of a main road, usually where everyone turns around. TLC means tender Loving care, and a fixer upper is a place that needs some work and is usually priced lower due to that need.

    I've lived on a "cul-de-sac" my whole life. Basically, there's a street that breaks off of a main road, probably constructed for the housing development. And off of this street, there are about five (in my case) "cul-de-sac"s. They're just little loops of road that shoot off like buds off of a branch. They basically allow for as many houses as possible to be built in an area with the fewest amounts of streets. A house on a cul-de-sac has a "court" address. I.E. 22 Ridgeford Ct.

    What this means for the property is a very low amount of through traffic. It's pretty obvious it just spits you back out to the main road to the average driver's naked eye, and they'll only go through if they need to make a turn-around, so for families that want to be able to put a basketball hoop up or let their kids play in the yard—especially the middle of the cul-de-sac which is communal and great for playing baseball, kickball, soccer—any activity that needs a fair sized patch of grass.

    A cul-de-sac is not always at the end of the road. It is a section (mostly half circle) extended on that road. It is not a court. A court has it's own name and street sign. There are plenty of cul-de-sacs in the middle of roads. Mostly used for a safer play area for children or turn arounds.

    cul de sac means that its in a neighborhood/street with a little circle at the back with houses around it... it makes it really easy to turn around..i live in one

    tlc... means that the house needs "tender loving care"... it is a bit messed up

    fixer upper... is the hard way of doing things.. you have to do a lot of repairs on them, you'd be better off just buying a new one (not new but you know) they tend to be older, and cheaper but the labor costs of fixing it up is a lot more trouble most times than it is worth...

    Good Luck ! <3

    cul de sac is like the end of street where it has a turn around kind of.

    tlc is tender loving care...aka it needs some work

    and a fixer is something that is going to take quite a bit of a work to fix it up
