Fleeing Cities to Seek Older Homes

Many home buyers are moving away from city centers during the pandemic, and showing an interest in locations with vintage homes that have character and charm. Sales of homes built more than 100 years ago in some areas climbed 16% between 2019 and 2020, according to data from realtor.com.

According to an arcticle in Realtor Magazine, however, remodeling experts warn buyers to be aware of the costs of renovating older homes. For example, restoring floors, fireplaces, and windows in older homes to their original glory can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Robert Khederian, a real estate professional who is renovating an 1821 brick rowhouse, told the Post that every historic home has different needs, but many people budget about $300 to $400 per square foot and $10,000 per fireplace when renovating.
