Post Textured walls

We are buying a new house and it has walls that are drywall covered with texturing, kind of what you see done to ceilings. Is it possible to remove the texturing to have a smooth drywall finish? If so, how do I do it?

You can probably wet the texture down enough to scrape it off with a wide sheetrock blade.
Use a Windex type spray bottle, and experiment, using only enough water to do the job.
Be careful on the seams.
Put plenty of plastic down. It's a very messy job.
After it drys out, repair any damaged places with spackling, lightly sand wherever you need to, prime (sander-primer-sealer) and paint.
Good Luck!
