They sure don’t build homes like they used to! Our cities and suburbs are full of newly built homes full of modern conveniences, and if you don’t mind a little longer morning commute you can buy a lot of land as well. But some of us are a lot more traditional and have always dreamed of buying and restoring an older home. The American “city center” is making a big comeback, and you can find some amazing deals on beautiful homes that were built long ago. The caveat is that you can often expect to have your work cut out for you to make the home comfortable and safe.
