Where can I view online the homes listed for sale in some of the Historic areas of downtown Raleigh? They are out of my price range for now, but one day I may come into some money and would be interested in purchasing something closer to downtown in one of these areas and I would like to do some research on them now. Are these homes usually listed on the MLS or are they handled differently since they are historic and usually only appeal to a smaller demographic? I am still on my RE agentís company search website to view properties in the triangle, but I canít seem to search these specific neighborhoods for some reason. I often see for sale signs (Not FSBO) on homes in 5-points, Mordecai, Boylean Heights, Oakwood ectÖ but can never find anything about these properties on-line. I would love to know what they are going for these days as well as see some pictures to get an idea of how people have updated them over the years. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

They're posted on the MLS just like any others. Only a few small parts are actually on an official historic district designation, and the only thing different would be certain covenants on the property to keep it historically accurate/preserved. (But compared to suburban HOA covenants, they're not really that bad...lol.)

I do know of an agent around here who advertises as specializing in sales in and near downtown. I won't link here cuz I don't know if the mods allow it or not (advertising?)....so I'll PM it to you. (But public info sites like downtownraleigh.com and downtownraleigh.org both have more info/links/etc.)

Any Realtor in Wake County can put together an auto search for you that will cull listings that fit your criteria and email them to you daily as they change, or are newly listed. It is called "Prospect Gateway." It can be repetitive but can also be a powerful tool.
It's free, too.
