Scenario Buyer finds a grand old house, sellers mark theproperty is not designated because it is not on theNational Registry. Buyer closes on the property, a month later beginsreplacing old windows with new vinyl windows. Buyer gets a friendly visit from a city official to beinformed to stop replacing the windows and putthe old windows back in. What happened?

What can you do? Whether you are representing the buyer or theseller, contacting the local preservationdepartment with the property address to find outif it is designated can help your client avoid thissituation. Ask for a copy or link to District Design Guidelines

What is “Designation”?

Types ofHistoricDesignationNational Register & NationalHistoric District- Potential TaxCredits –Approval by State(SHPO)Local Historic Designation &Local Historic District – PotentialTax Credits and Design GuidelineReview by CLGFederal State Credits are ONLYfor Commercial Use

If it has a plaque, it has rules. FALSE Anyone can put up a plaque Homes on the National Register of HistoricPlaces usually have plaques Other reasons for plaques, such ascommemorating a place or event ofimportance

If it doesn’t have a plaque,it doesn’t have rules. FALSE Misconception, especially in designateddistricts Districts could consist of:– A neighborhood block– Subdivision– Farmstead– Commercial district

It must be over 100 years oldto be “historic.” FALSE Any home 50 years or older is a potential candidate forthe National Register nomination Era built Architecture Surrounding properties (esp. historic district) Integrity of design Association with important figure

BecomingDesignatedLocal Historic Districts- Citymust have a CLG createdthrough the state SHPO andhomeowners vote to approveformation of districtLocal Historic DesignationHomeowner choses to havehome designated, CLGapprovesNational Register- ALWAYSstarts with the state SHPO.Final approval from NRHP.

Historic Survey of DistrictDocument created for designation approvalIncludes specificinformation about districtsuch as:History of districtArchitecural styles and ages ofhomes and buildings in districtPhotos of homes and buildingsCan often be found online in pdf form

Only homes on the National Registerare protected. FALSE Many municipalities will “flag”a permit for rehabilitation ordemolition on any home over100 years old or of localsignificance. Local Historic Districts, TaxAbatements, often haveregulations.

Buyer Questions Many common myths exist within the realm of historic homeownership. Just as we advise our clients to contact an attorney for legalquestions, an accountant for tax advice, there are localprofessionals to give “old house” advice in regards torehab/restoration regulations. Even if the home is not designated many owners of “old homes”will still want advice as to how to retain/restore their historicproperty.

Being designated means someone can tell youwhat color your client can paint their house,and they can’t change anything. FALSE (with some local reasonable colorrestrictions) Street view of exterior façade is main concern(some local interior reviews) Could include windows Suggested that any necessary changes shouldbe done with like style and materials in mind Specific features may have additionalprotection if home is on National Register

If a home becomes a part of a designateddistrict, your client will have to remove the newstuff and put the old stuff back. FALSE Not around here Any future changes will be reviewed by yourlocal CLG

If your client buys an historic property, they willhave a responsibility to open thier house to thepublic. FALSE Completely voluntary! Plenty of opportunities to participate incommunity old homes tours, but you have thepower to decide whether or not toparticipate.

You can’t get insurance ona designated house. FALSE Replacement value policies can be expensiveand are not based on designation regulations. More expensive to take out policy to covercomplete replacement of interior and exterior. Market value replacement insurance is whatmany homeowners use.

TaxAbatements Provided by municipality Typically, will still pay tax onland and or value beforeimprovements Primarily used to increasehome-ownership in blightedareas Can be managed by anAbatement Board withoutCLG guidelines Does not require historicdesignation

Old homes have less value. FALSE The surrounding environment can make themmuch more valuable than any other type ofhome Their protection often protects their value The restoration of old homes has manybenefits

Historic district designation leads to increasedlevels of home ownership and longerresidence by both homeowners and renters. Designated historic districts tend to havehigher rates of participation in neighborhoodassociations and improvement projects, whichprotects shared spaces from decline.

Nationwide, property values in local historicdistricts appreciate significantly faster than themarket as a whole. Study in Phoenix, AZ noted that historicdesignation increased the average marketablesales price of a house by 31%. Study in Memphis, TN, combined local/nationaldesignation added 18.6% to assessed propertyvalues over a 4-year period, compared to a 13%added by national designation alone.

A 2000 study in South Carolina found that homeswithin a historic district sold 26% faster thanoverall market, while nearby Beauport saw a 21%greater sale price. Historic designation typically increases residentialproperty values by 5-35% per decade over thevalues in similar, undesignated neighborhoods. Local historic district designation decreasesinvestor uncertainty and insulates propertyvalues.

Restore? Remodel?

Update Update Update Just as we help our sellers determine whatupgrades are the best value for resale, thesame applies to historic aged properties Check solds, most often buyers of thesehomes prefer homes that have had theoriginal details kept and preserved orrestored. Quite often too many updates are the lastthing buyers want.

Today’sMaterialsvsYesterday’s No one ever said restoring an oldhome was easy, inexpensive or withoutpotential dangers– Lead based paint– Asbestos Insulation in walls, attics, pipesand ductwork, also sometimesfound in flooring– Electrical & Plumbing Get an inspection!! Electric andPlumbing has evolved manytimes since it’s inception, quiteoften upgrades beingperformed by non-licensedhomeowners or contractors.

Old Materials

Owning an old home with original windowsmakes you an earth hater. FALSE FTC Ruling Where is energylost?

Surprises In TheYard Outhouses, old septic “tanks”and wells Graveyards– Headstones and markerscannot be disturbed– Must remain accessible tofamily members of thedeceased– Unmarked graveyardshave regulations– Local & State laws candiffer in all additionalgraveyard regulations
