What to Consider Before Buying a Century Home

If you're obsessed with classical details or an old-soul hoping to put down roots, a century home might be perfect for you. However, although full of charm and history, a 100-year-old home could come with a few problems. Here are six things you need to consider before buying a century home.


7 Tips for Adding Character and Charm to a Cookie-Cutter New Build Home

For many people, a move to the suburbs is inevitable. Rising costs, postage stamp-size properties, and the hustle and bustle of downtown living grinds them down, prompting them to consider a move outside the city — especially when starting a family. While there are many benefits to buying pre-construction (energy efficiency, new home warranties, etc.), they are often thought of as boring, builder-basic boxes. But this doesn’t have to be the case.  Here are seven tips on transforming a cookie-cutter new build into a sophisticated, designer-approved showpiece.

20 Charming Design Features Found in Older Homes
Design features found in older homes tell the story of the space. Here are a few ideas on how to embrace these heirloom details, so that they will stand the test of time - and set your home apart from the rest.

No Off Season
As you may have noticed, the summer months tend to be active in the real estate market. One reason is the desire of many buyers to get into their new homes by September. Another reason, of course, is the time people have available to look at properties.

Does that mean you shouldn’t sell your home in the “off season”?

Not at all. In fact, there really isn’t an off-season in real estate. Homes sell for good prices at all times of the year.

So when you’re ready to make a move again, whether that’s this year, next year, or in five years, don’t be too concerned about the season. The best time to sell your home is the moment you’re ready – and that can be at any time of the year.
