Pros of a Historical Home

1. Amazing Architecture - entering a historical home can sweep you away to a bygone period of time. Each nook and cranny is unique and filled with detail you do not see in modern home design and construction.

2. Stunning Detail - Historical Homes in Texas have many amazing and intricate details that will never be seen again due to the extreme cost associate with its construction. If you want a unique home, this is a great way to achieve it.

3. Location - Historical Homes in DFW tend to be situated on or near the original town square. This means it can be a short walk to enjoy the downtown nightlife. Imagine having a short evening walk to a great dinner, glass of wine and then back home. Quite a lifestyle...

4. Financial Benefits - Many local, state and national entities offer financial assistance to historical homeowners that are doing a period renovation.

Cons of a Historical Home

1. Price - These amazing homes are never cheap, nor are they a 'good deal'. They tend to be at the top of the market and usually need a very expensive restoration.

2. Strict Rules - A historical home is usually under a very strict set of rules. These rules can extend to materials, techniques and even paint colors that are acceptable.

3. Expensive Insurance - Your home owners insurance may be very, very expensive. Due to the nature of a historical home, you may receive a huge surprise when shopping for home owners insurance.

4. Very Few Contractors - Good luck finding a qualified contractor in your area. These folks are a rare breed indeed. If you are looking to do a top notch remodel in the McKinney Historical District call the British Builder, simply amazing results.

5. Your project will probably take longer and cost more than you expect - with limited workers, restrictions on acceptable products, local codes and snooty historical code enforcement you will pull your hair out and question your decision multiple times. The end product will be worth it, but only if you are prepared before you begin.
