I believe the inference was relative to older property. It is my opinion many younger people, not all, just have an adversion to older property, mainly because they do not have the experience or vision to anticipate what it can be. Either that or they are so naive without knowledge of basic building structures they buy some falling down piece of crap and then wonder why everything is so expensive.

Few people take the time to learn about construction, materials, and such. If ypu just follow some realtor's advice you will get burnt about 9 times out of 10.

Some people have a problem with some of my statements. Most likely they and I went to different high schools. Or maybe elementary schools....

I work with a lot of clients in their mid/late 20's who buy old houses (first home or a move up from a condo) and are trying to get it right the first time.

Old houses are different things to differrent people. For me personally its period interior design, totally up to date mechanicals and a kitchen and baths that work. The devil is in the details. Doing things like sealing the ductwork, insulating the pipes properly, making sure your electrical can actually handle what you are throwing at it are all things that you want to do right the first time and if you do then maintence will not be a major issue.

In fact, if you do it right, you may have less problems that some newer homes.
