It’s no secret that older homes may be beautiful, but come with their own set of headaches like outdated features, safety concerns, and aesthetic issues to name a few.
When you buy a historic home, or a home in a district that has been designated as historic, there are even more things to consider:
- Rules surrounding your historic home might be even more restrictive than the strictest HOA.
- Renovations are probably going to take longer, cost more, and be more frequent.
- You might face obstacles when trying to finance or insure a historic home.
You might not get a great return on your investment when you try to resell your historic home.
If you still find yourself longing for a historic home, you’re probably a really good match for a gorgeous historic home.
There’s huge appeal. Historic homes pack an enormous punch when it comes to character and charm. Plus, they’re packed with history — history that you’re helping keep alive!
You might also get access to tax incentives or lower interest loans to restore a historical home or even just to purchase and preserve it.
