Do you have a popcorn ceiling? Or are you looking at a home with a popcorn ceiling?
Be warned that depending on the date the ceiling was built or redone, you may have a problem with asbestos. Bill and Kevin Burnett at Inman News just published a great article on this topic.
The quick answer is that asbsteos was banned in 1979. So if your house or the work was done after that date, there shouldn’t be a problem but the only real way to know is to have it tested. For more information on asbestos, check out the Environmental Protection Agency Web site.
