Buying a new home takes equal parts patience and persistence. You know exactly what you want and have the right to be picky about anything you see as part of the process.
The real tricky part comes once you've purchased the house and moved in, because you'll undoubtedly come across repairs and fix ups you either missed initially, or they weren't an integral part of buying the home as far as precluding you ultimately deciding to purchase.
These renovations hardly would be considered major but rather preference bleeding through on certain eye sores, for instance, that you want changed.
What you may want to consider, however, is if you're financially capable of doing this work and realistically if it actually needs done at all (or, if nothing else left alone for a while until time and money aren't a factor).
Obviously, things like holes in the roof, faulty plumbing, insect infestation and sub par wiring throughout the house would be found during the inspection process and wouldn't be part of this discussion, provided your inspection person or service isn't also questionable.
