If you are looking for a realtor who appreciates the character and charm of an older colonial, give me a call!
No there should be no reason you cannot consider buying a 1930 construction. In a town such as Tenafly there is a wide variety of beautiful homes constructed in that era. Most of those homes have been lovingly taken care of thru the generations. If you still feel a bit uneasy, consider hiring an inspector to look at the home before you make an offer.
I hope you will feel confident in your purchase.
Not any reason that I can think of without knowing more of your situation. If you are just asking in general if you can buy a house built in 1930 - sure why not? Unless there's something limiting your buying options, I see no reason why you cannot buy a home constructed in 1930.
Add Mountain Lakes to the list of town with great older homes.
Any home built earlir than 1978 will probably have lead paint.
That isn't to say its a problem.
Your home inspector can advise you in those matters.
And pay special attention to any additions that were built.
.There is not usually any difficulty in obtaining finance either.
