Mike,
The wood streets do have historic homes. Not all homes are historic. From what I do know, in Down Town Riverside, and the Wood Streets if the home is at least 100 years old you will qualify for certain grants to renovate the home. There are different programs available through the city its self. However these programs change and most lenders don’t know much about them. The best advice I can give you about the programs is to call city hall. Ask about the historic home programs. I would love to sound like an expert, but the renovation programs in the area change all the time, and has some red tape involved. If I can be of any more assistance, let me know.

Mike,
Some homes have a special designation as "Historic" when this is the case there are only guidelines in place as to what color you can paint the house and what changes can be made. Not all the homes in the "Wood Street" area are historic. Both Riverside and Corona has areas that have these wonderful old homes.

Yes, you can get renovation loans. I work closely with a lender who specializes in home renovation loans. We have a great working relationship and I would be pleased to pass her inormation along to you. The historic society for this area has the best information in regards to restrictions. http://www.riversidehistoricalsociety.org
Also, I know of a great realtor who specialize in historic homes. Their specialty is vintage. I would recommend going with a realtor who's knowledge is vast in this area of expertise. Good luck to you.

Yes the Wood Streets are located in a historic district,which means that there are certain guidelines and restrictions that you would have to consider when making improvements on the exterior of the home. There are loans you can get for improvements on the home as well as rebates you can receive through the city.
