Why You Shouldn't Count Old Homes Out

.

 

Purchasing a home? It can be very appealing to look for something move-in ready that consists of new construction, new appliances and the like. But there are lots of great reasons to keep a few older homes on the list. Why? Find out below:

  1. “They Just Don’t Build ‘Em Like They Used To.” You’ve probably heard that saying before and most of the time, it’s true. Lots of established houses on the market are built to last and many aspects of the construction simply cannot be duplicated today. With that said, it is a good idea to replace older heating and cooling systems as they can cost you much more over time.

  2. They’re Situated In Established Locations. Take the Twin Cities for example - we’re known for older harms with unparalleled charm, our school districts are magnificent, and the crime rate is relatively low compared to other cities. If older homes are still prevalent, it’s a good sign that the area is stable.

  3. They Have Unmatched Character. Mature trees don’t form overnight and original crown moldings are hard to come by. While some new homes try to copy older styles, you may opt for the real thing instead.
