What is a Historic Home?
For a home to qualify as historic, it has to meet a fairly strict list of criteria:
- The home must be of a certain age.
- The home must have retained the majority of its characteristics at the point where it was appointed as “historic.”
- Historic homes are often of certain standing or influence, possessing unique architecture, historic significance, or other noteworthy features (such as previous historically-pertinent figures).
- A home is historic when it is deemed so by government sanction. In other words, one cannot simply proclaim a home to be historic and expect it to stick!
What are the Benefits of a Historic Home?
Aside from being trusted with an important piece of architecture and the prestige that comes along with it, there are financial benefits to being the owner of the historic property! There is a growing number of tax benefits for owning and caring for a historic home, many of which are geared at not only assisting in the upkeep of the home itself, but are also aimed at providing incentives for the homeowner to do so!
In many cases, homeowners can even anticipate grants, tax breaks, and even endowments available in accompaniment with owning and living in historic homes. To ensure you’re receiving the most benefit from your contributions, it is important to work alongside a trusted team familiar with local and state tax benefits and information!
