Although I recognize historic homes don't always sell quickly, I believe any WELL-maintained, WELL-priced home will be WELL-received by buyers. The key is to use a broker with excellent Internet marketing to find those special people who are willing to think outside the box and consider an old home.
This fall I sold an old stone Bucks Co farmhouse that needed TOTAL restoration. It took 18 months to find the right buyer, but there was excitement at the settlement table as the buyers and sellers spoke about the story of the home.....its past and its future. Last fall it took 9 months to sell a different Bucks Co farmhouse which had character galore but no updates. Thankfully the new buyer was old-fashioned and didn't mind!
And then there's my parents' 1750 Bucks County stone farmhouse which has been restored and expanded with authentic construction styles and blended with modern amenities. When it comes time to sell that one, there will be a line running down the street!!
Has your home remained true to the period, yet been updated to today's lifestyles? If so, I believe that there is a special buyer searching for YOUR home right now!! I'd love to know where your home is located!! Maybe I know it!!
Feel free to read my client reviews. I'd love to add your name to the list!
All the best,

Once your home is listed we get the word out as soon as possible with an extensive marketing plan. Historic homes are unique and there are lots of buyers just waiting for that right house to come along.
