The home would also have to have been well kept throughout the years without evidence of foundation issues, termite infestation, wood rot and many other things.
Does this help ? ? ? Any other questions?
If you need something more specific, feel free to contact me with more details and I will gladly give some of my time to you.

Me, I'm a sucker for the older homes. Give me something built in the early 1900s that has been updated but still has the old school coolness to it.. and you got me!
But, there are some brand new homes that knocked my socks off as well.. It's going to have to come down to what each person really likes. What is more their style...
A home built in 1920 that is worth $500,000 is worth the same as a brand new home that is worth $500,000... ;) Either way, it's all about what you love in a home.
There are pros and cons both ways on Old Vs. New.

If you are planning on being in a home for only a couple years, buying in a subdivision where they are still building new homes can make recapturing value in your home in the short term a challenge b/c you will be selling your home in a subdivision where buyers can get a new home for the same price or less.
If you intend to only be in the home a short time, buying in an established neighborhood make return more value, b/c you are not competing with brand new homes in the market.
This is a general rule and exceptions certainly apply ... "value" can be found in nearly all ages of homes. Remember, you can make money when you buy a home than when you sell it, if you get the drift.
Feel free to contact me at (210) 858-7899 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can assist you.
