    Also, you said, "I am buying a home". Does that mean you have not bought it yet? Many banks offer loans of that type so you can fix it up. It's been awhile but I believe they are called 203K FHA loans. Check with your realtor for more info and or call your bank. Here is a direct link. http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/program_o...

    I usually check out the HouseLogic.com website when it comes to DIY home repairs. If you are looking to hire someone to do the job, I would consider checking Angie's list first for reviews so you can find someone trustworthy.
