Historic Homes and Buildings in MD, VA, and DC
The sale of historic properties requires specialty knowledge and handling due to the preservation requirements placed on the new owners. Owners are expected to maintain the historical significance of the property and must receive approval through special permits before making any improvements. We’ve found in many cases there are strict rehabilitation guidelines, which may allow the homeowner to repair, but not rebuild or replace existing or previously-existing parts of the property.
Restrictions often apply to:
- Paint colors
Particularly old properties may lack modern amenities that make historic properties livable. In fact, features such as bathrooms, electricity, and modern heat and air-conditioning systems all may not be included. Depending upon the property, local ordinances may allow for modernization of these items, or not, forcing the owners to keep the property as much to the original structure as possible. These are the kind of things Coakley Realty always researches for our clients.
