Here is week 33 in our series of home buying tips: Red Tape.
If you’re considering purchasing a historic home, one located in a historic district, or one with a strict homeowners’ association (HOA), it could mean that any changes you want to make to the exterior — and sometimes even the interior — have to be approved by a historic commission, society, or other board. Doing any renovation on a home that has historical significance could prove to be a permitting process far beyond anything you are interested in doing.
The good news is that our team has relationships in our community and knows how to navigate red tape and find out the relevant facts for each neighborhood, street, and home that gets your attention. Call or email us, and we’ll get you the information that isn’t in the MLS.
