6 reasons to invest in an older house

15 Aug

Below are some of the main reasons why you should invest in an older home:

1. More character. Older homes possess a certain character that you just won’t find in new cookie-cutter models. It could be a hand-carved staircase, a farmhouse sink, original stained-glass windows, or a classic fireplace. These are all features that you most likely won’t find in modern houses. There are even stories of people buying and living in renovated church homes.

2. Solid construction. Let’s face it – homes just aren’t built the way they used to. An older home will typically have thicker walls, and framing built with old-growth wood. This means that the wood is denser and more sustainable. Also, doors are generally made from solid wood and come with hardware built to last.

3. Old-school savings options. My sister owns a house that was built in 1885, and she has something called transom windows over her internal doors. These are basically small windows that can be opened and closed and can greatly improve the air flow in the home. This allows you to take full advantage of the natural breeze, thus lowering energy bills. And while some older homes don’t come with centralized air-conditioning, you can use window units and just cool the rooms you use the most.

4. Better price. Since older homes are generally not as popular with buyers as newer homes, you may be able to get one for a cheaper price. Plus, they are often larger than recently built homes. If square footage is important to you, an older home may represent a relatively affordable way to get more.

5. Transportation savings. Older homes tend to be located in urban neighborhoods. So along with getting a deal on the price of the home, you can also save on transportation. These neighborhoods are generally within walking distance of grocery stores and other businesses.

6. Tax breaks. Depending on the locale, your new home may qualify for certain tax abatement programs. These programs essentially waive or reduce certain city, school, or property taxes over an extended period of time.

How to Limit Spending When Getting A Home Ready To Sell

30 Jun

A home inspector is another asset Sellers should take advantage of to save money. Buyers will likely hire their own inspector to examine a home, and if they find significant problems, they may ask sellers to lower their asking price or walk away altogether. However, sellers who discover issues beforehand and have them repaired may be in a better position to price their homes and mitigate potential problems.

Keep improvements to a minimum

Minor updates to a home can be helpful in attracting buyers. However, going overboard on updates to sell a home may not give sellers the kind of return they are expecting. For example, adding on an office addition or turning the basement into a den may make a home more appealing, but buyers may be unlikely to pay a great deal extra for it, according to the National Association of Realtors. Instead, sellers may benefit more from small touch-ups, such as repainting the home, adding new fixtures and hiring a landscaper to improve a property’s curb appeal.

Not sure where to start with your exterior? Realtor.com posted great suggestions that included:
• Keep the lawn edged, cut and watered regularly.
• Trim hedges, weed lawns and flowerbeds, and prune trees regularly.
•Check the foundation, steps, walkways, walls and patios for cracks and crumbling.
• Inspect doors and windows for peeling paint.
•Clean and align gutters.
• Inspect and clean the chimney.
•Repair and replace loose or damaged roof shingles.
•Repair and repaint loose siding and caulking.
• In Northern winters, keep walks neatly cleared of snow and ice.
•During spring and summer months consider adding a few showy annuals, perhaps in pots, near your front entrance.
• Re-seal an asphalt driveway.
•Keep your garage door closed.
•Store RVs or (extra) cars elsewhere while the house is on the market.
•Apply a fresh coat of paint to the front door.
