Historic Homes - Remerica Hometown REALTORS

Some people love the blank slate offered by a brand new home. Others prefer the quirky charm and lived-in ambiance of an older home in a historic neighborhood. After many years in the business, our REALTORS® have sold just about every kind of home there is.

If you're out looking for Ann Arbor homes for sale, you have a wide range of options to choose from. Some of those options will be historic homes that come with plenty of charm and, in a lot of cases, may need a lot of work. Here's what you need to know about buying that historic home. 

Pros of buying a historic home

  • Historic homes are unique. 
    Older homes often have unique features that range from charming to downright odd, but one thing's for sure: You won't find them in a newer house. From intricate crown molding and hand-carved railings to antique fireplaces and quirky fixtures, historic homes are often packed with one-of-a-kind features. You're not likely to find them anywhere else.
