Older homes have their fans. Thousands of them. Those oldies have style, character. They have a soul. They have the originality of authenticity. They are back in fashion, and very much sought after since their number is shrinking. The buyers are collectors of sort, interested in bringing these ancient houses back to their past glory. Of course, if it’s OK for an older house to proudly show its age from the outside, the respect of historic integrity does not extend to the interior. We are now in 2014 and a few things have changed inside a home, over the last 2 or 3 centuries, with the discovery of electricity and inside plumbing. Style is one thing but comfort should not be compromised at the high-end. Too bad for the purists. This infatuation with older homes is spreading all over the map at accelerated speed. It almost looks as if more and more of us needed to plunge into the past to recapture an identity and honor our common roots. Whatever the reason, Americans are now passionate about old stones and wood.

these homes are simple looking is actually their m.”

In a recent article, the Wall Street Journal sees in this “hobby” a reaction against over-sized and over-designed McMansions. Perhaps, but I am a bit skeptical about that view since fixing up an antique house does not necessarily means that the living quarters will be small. Indeed, a lot of buyers, when opportunity affords, are fast to convert adjoining old barns, stables or whatever, into guest rooms, pool houses, etc…

The other day, as I was playing on Yahoo, I came across a story that illustrates the point. Somewhat. They were talking about a guy who fell in love with an original Pilgrim’s Saltbox house, from the late 17th century if I recall. I don’t know if you can picture a Saltbox but I guarantee it’s boxy alright, salt or no-salt. Aside from its typical steep-pitched roof, it is as plain as plain can be with only tiny windows to decorate the wood siding. The fact that these homes are simple and modest looking is actually their biggest charm. Whether painted white or red, they look most interesting in a typical New England landscape. But there is a price limit for everything. The buyer poured tons of money in renovating it while preserving its integrity. Before he knew it, he was in for something like $2.5M. Then he tried to sell it. He is still trying. The price is around $1.5 now, if memory serves me right. Tough lesson to learn. Hundreds of thousand dollars later, the house is still as plain today as it was before, and at that new price, nostalgia is too expensive. I too am sentimental I guess. Back many-many moons ago, I fell for an oldie. It was a beautiful turn-of-the-century California farm house perched on a green knoll, on the San Francisco Peninsula. The contractor we hired to make it functional “enjoyed” the place a lot more than we did, as he worked there every day for more than a year! When it finally was all done and looking gorgeous, we sold it for much less than we put into it. Listen to your heart when you buy an older home, but, unless your wallet is expandable, listen to your brains too!

One thing to remember when you are hunting for an older home is that what you like is not necessarily what others will find attractive enough to pay top dollars for. Potential resale value is critical if you don’t intend to live in the place very long. Most oldies’ buyers succumb to the charm, fix-up the house at great expense, and hope to not only recover their investment but hit the jackpot. Not all of the oldies are worth burning a lot of money renovating. Some are so run down or so basic that they are like the cute funny-looking puppy that only a mother would love.
