Wake Forest NC Historic Homes and a COA - What it That?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with RED Properties NC #129285

Many times homebuyers dream of owning a historic home.  The historic homes in Wake Forest NC are absolutely beautiful and I often see cars parked in front with stars in the occupants eyes just dreaming away.....okay, maybe that's me but you get the point.

While owning a historic home is a dream for many it is also a priviledge and with that comes some certain guidelines that one must follow.  One that ANY historic homeowner should become familiar with is a Certificate of Appropriateness or a COA.

If you are a historic homeowner, a historic homeowner wannabe or just want to catch up on the lingo then head on over to my Historic Homes blog What's Your Circa - you just might learn a little something!  You can read all about the Certificate of Appropriateness at this post:

Great idea and info for a blog post.  One definitely wants to know what they are getting into with a historic home.  There's more layers there than your typical home. 

All the best, Michelle

Leesa -  I've never heard of such a thing!  I've also been one to dream about living in an historic home and have heard that there are nuances.  Here is one example and why it is so important to hire an agent that knows these nuances otherwise a new homeowner may find themselves saying what the...? when they get an ordinance from the city or county after buying the home!

Thanks, Michelle and you're right!  I like that - "More Layers"!  While they are absolutely wonderful to own there are quite a few things that homeowners need to know before they make that leap.
