What does "just needs a little TLC" mean?

Should i go for it or just forget about it? but i need it though, maybe i can bargain less than given price right, so i can have enough to fix it if there is a problem. Can someone please make it more clearer to me?

    When I put this in ads for doll clothing, it usually means 'just needs a snap replaced' or 'just needs a little rip sewn up.' It means it might need a bit of work, which some people just don't want to put forth time or effort. Others love to work on whatever their fave hobby is. Then--some advertisers fudge and it really means 'needs a whole bunch of time and money to restore.' Good luck!

    "TLC" means "tender loving care," so they're just saying it needs some fixing up, that with some time spent working on it, it'll be good.

    I dunno what you're buying, is it a house? Well whatever it is, you should know if it's good enough and if you can improve it. If you're willing to fix it up, or if you just don't care either way, then go for it.
