Tips for Buying a Historic Home

Untitled design-13

If you’re anything like me, you love the charm of historic homes.


But does that charm come at a cost?


It’s no secret that older homes come with their own set of headaches like outdated features, safety concerns, and aesthetic issues to name a few.


When you buy an 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 prescriptive 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 an 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 an historic home after reading all that, 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 an historical home or even just to purchase and preserve it.
