We did just what you are discussing; painted, pulled up carpeting, washed windows, changed curtains and have been here happily since 1995.
Dirt is just dirt; washable. Buy the house and have a lot of fun throwing clean up parties!

I wouldn't want to walk away from a great home. If the home smells of smoke, you can set out vinegar. Using "Kiltz" on the walls and tearing up carpet can make a big improvement.Get ducts cleaned and put in new filters. That will help a lot. Smoke attatches to everything but can be wiped off of wood. You would need to take out everything made with fabric and don't have sellers leave anything behind.
Best of luck to you and your family
