The earliest built year that I found in Livingston is 1930.So for the houses with unknown built year, were they most likely built before 1930? Thanks!

All that said...generally undisclosed is a sign that the age may be old(er), so while I agree that you shouldn't make assumptions, your hunch is likely more right than wrong. Home age can be denoted approximate if the seller/agent is unsure. Having nothing is not a great marketing positive. In a similar way, while no photos do not necessarily mean that their is nothing inviting to share, that is often the inference.

Good luck and best,

It depends on the neighborhood. Contact a REALTOR in Livingston, don't assume anything when you are lokoing for or buying a home!

Just because a home does not have the age listed it does not mean that the house was built prior to 1930, it just means that they do not have the info at hand.
Sometimes a home seller does not know the age of their home; in this case a little research or local knowledge of the architecture could help establish an approximate age of the home; but not all homes as you know will have their age listed. I have been to many homes of varying ages with their "year built " listed as age "unknown".
Livingston celebrated it's two hundredth year anniversary last month, but the area was fist settled circa 1700. Few very early home survive today and the town did experience a later build out than some of the surrounding towns that were more accessible due to the train lines. Many homes were built between 1940-1960, while surrounding towns experienced a building boom in the mid 20's.
An experienced agent with local knowledge can help guide you through this process, feel free to contact me if you need any assistance.

Are you in search of historical homes? Livingston is not the right town for that! Most homes were built in the 40's, 50's and 60's. Also depends on your price range. Lots of the older homes are less expensive. The newer Colonials and Split/ bi level homes are mainly from the 50's and 60's.

If you are looking for a home in the area and don't have a professional realtor to assist you with your search you may not get the full information about each town.

Feel free to call our team for a buyer's consultation where we can find out more about your needs and point you to the right homes.

Great luck in your search!

I would not assume that at all. In fact, you won't find an abundance of homes built prior to 1930 in Livingston because up until the 1920's, it was mostly farmland. Most of Livingston was not developed until after the 1940's.
