IndexI just happened upon these. I e-mailed about them and they need some renovations that may equal to the sale price which means you could get a historic home for less than $200,000!

Careful there are tons of rules to owning a historic home and OTHER people that have to approve your repairs, colors, designs, about anything there is a National Historic home for sale around here and it's been for sale for a long time and it's cheap ... no one wants it do to the cost of keeping everything "historic" .. i.e. no replacement windows, replacing stain or leaded glass, wood work, keeping wood siding up etc ... and as I said it's not up to you, somebody (committee) tells you what you can and can't do on a house you are paying for and they don't even pitch in on the work or the cost.

In short I'd pass.

Thank you for the info. If I had the money I would do it anyway but I love anything historic. I guess someone may want to take it on.
