1. “Required improvements” Increase the value of the house – generally you can hope to see the increase in the value of your home when you do things like changing air conditioning units, furnaces, or roofs. You will get a higher offer in your home with these things than without. So, while the idea of buying a house with an old hot hot heater you need to change it looks like Buzz, you will pay less than if they have improved it for you (always use this as a power negotiations! Every request! They do it, or take into account what is worth the house ). This combination can be a great way to buy a good house for a lot.
2. “Do not regret” changes in design – that parquet floor has been around long enough to encourage any regret to tear it and replace it. The 80s tiles, don’t hesitate to tear them. The trend ends and it’s better to tear the tiles that pass the prime rather than new tiles that are almost not visible to use. And you are free to replace it with whatever you want, while the builder usually has the choice you have to choose.
3. The charm of “old house” – more expensive to buy new “charming” details. Just like tile floors and old parquets, crown molds and carved wood details you will often find in older homes have “pay for it” and cheaper to buy in older homes. You will find decor with this detail to be a gift because they are attractive visually and beautifully.
4. Cheaper to buy an older house can be cheaper to buy in advance for the same square recording in the same area. This is related to the cost of labor that entered new construction. You pay a wage when you buy these houses while you only buy property values from older home sellers.
5. Established countries – older houses are in an older environment and this can mean beautiful shade provides adult trees, grass, garden, and others. Drive through an older environment and you will see the benefits with the adult landscape and a variety of people who live there.
6. The potential for renovation – because the houses are often cheaper, lots are usually bigger, and the houses are not as close to, there is not much room to overhaul the older house. Please and attach it with # 2 and you in it to win it, right?
7. Energy efficiency – Yes! Surprisingly, I will notify you that buying an older house can benefit your bank account. Smaller houses are cheaper to heat and cooled. As long as you have or improve the existing isolation features, smaller rooms and lower ceilings will feel cheaper to stay comfortable. And at the other end, older houses are not equipped with cooling and modern heating so they are built with features that keep it cool (without electricity, YAY lower electricity bills!)
8. Problems that have been found & intended – as long as the previous owner is not a total d-bag, a problem that has increased from home construction will have been addressed. Things like solving possibilities have happened (real stories – my parents bought new construction and they had big spots around the door of one side of their home where they had a crack from the settlement of new homes).
9. Variations in choice / style / design / layout – When you buy from the builder, you get an option. This choice is uniform in choice with all other houses sold by builders. When you buy in an older environment, you get various styles, choices, and finish to choose.
10. Older locations are usually closer to the desired part of the city. My older house is located near the beach, other old houses in our city are located in a beautiful neighborhood right next to the city center. Newer new construction houses are usually built on old areas full of trees and enough out of the way (and if you want to get out of the way, a charming old farmhouse usually out there!)
