Buying A Historic Home
Are you drawn to the classic beauty and charm of a historic home? Sure, many of us are. While newly built homes smell clean and often have perfect lines and symmetry, historic homes are full of character. Perhaps you have rented one of the historic homes listed on the National Register of Historic Places before and are now considering buying one. Before you do, understand that owning a historic home is a huge commitment.
Here some pros and cons you should know before owning a historic home.
Superior Craftsmanship. Historic homes often feature craftsmanship that you will not find in a newer home.
