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.
