Do you absolutely love the charm and character of the older historical homes? Do you want to be in the middle of town where the city was first created? You can definitely say they don’t build homes with the craftsmanship and charm the way they used to. Older homes have that cute and established factor that you just don’t get with a new home community. Or maybe you just want to live in downtown Colorado Springs.
Benefits of owning a historical home also include mature landscaping and trees. Large tree lined streets and gorgeous bloomed flowers add the extra touch to a historical neighborhood. Many of our historical neighborhoods in Colorado Springs are extremely close to the cities build in parks and trails. We have the Pikes Peak Greenway Trail, Shooks Run Trail, Monument Valley Park and Sondermann Park.
Also since these homes have been existence a long time many of these homes have been modified to expand rooms, make bigger kitchens or have additions added on to the home. This creates a historical architecture that meets modern living.
Property Values increase faster with a historical home because the neighborhood is already established and there is a high demand for historical homes. In newer neighborhoods you will have more competition selling because there may still be building going on. So now you have to compete with the builder to sell your house.
If you buy a home in one of the historical districts in Colorado Springs you may be eligible for tax credits. Our community wants owners to restore and preserve our history. So if you plan to restore the historical character of the home you may have some tax credits.
As of right now we only have the ability to put historical homes on our site from the Pikes Peak region. If you are looking for a historical home in other area's please give us a call. We can set up a custom historical home search for your needs on our back end.
