Maybe it’s because the holidays tend to evoke old memories…or maybe it’s because what is old is new again – but the housing market trends are reporting that historic homes are in demand! Okay, let’s face it, with these inventory levels, nearly all homes are in some sort of demand. But the days of everyone wanting a modern, simplistic style are gone, and tastes are as diverse as the buyers who are home hunting this season.
In this week’s top visual…I plucked a picture from a week of the most popular homes viewed on Realtor.com. From 1905 fixer-uppers to vintage Victorian’s, the scene was more about personality than modern minimalism.
If the topic of historic homes has captured your attention and your inner history buff, here are a few more sources for tried and true properties rooted in time:
National Trust For Historic Preservation: http://historicrealestate.preservationnation.org/
With a tag line of ‘saving the past & enriching the future’, you can view homes across the US that are considered historically significant and protected by a privately funded non-profit.
A site specially crafted for the old home lovers & renovation dreamers features innovative marketing and tons of resources for enjoying experienced & ever-desirable historic homes.
National Register of Historic Places: http://www.nps.gov/nr/
The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the Nation’s historic places worthy of preservation. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places is part of a national program to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America’s historic and archaeological resources.
Be sure to check back next Tuesday for another top visual…picked by me for you!
