I'm still about 12 months from looking at homes to purchase in or around Charlotte. I have to say, I'm having a difficult time deciding on a historical home or newer construction(not brand new). I'm attracted to historicals, but I think of the inevitable problems with plumbing, foundations, electrical and overall restorations. But, I suppose, it comes with the territory. I know I have time to think about it, but.........

Now, the reason I post this is, are there particular websites to look at histoical homes for sale? I find I have to weed through a lot of listings on realtor.com to find one. What areas of Charlotte are recommended for old homes(low crime, ect..) I know it's early to look, but curiosity is getting to me

PS; price range; $175000-$275000

Cool Plaza-Midwood

Plaza-Midwood - they are bungalow type homes, in a historic district with tree-lined streets about 1.5 miles from center city. For that price, it might be hard to find a fixer-upper. Moderator cut: tos violation soliciting

Another option-go in to CarolinaHome.com and put in search by city-Charlotte, Max price 275K (actually I would suggest 300K so as not to miss anything slighty above your price point) and then put in under age of home 50+. I found there were 200+ homes. Hope this helps.

Mike, have you considered a newer "Neo-Traditional" home? Builders like Saussy Burbank and David Weekly offer some very attractive homes that have a "classic feel" but modern construction and conveniences. From the outside, many of the floor plans look like they could have easily been built generations ago. Just a thought.
