Historic Home Buying is the latest trend in the Atlanta Metro Area!
As Atlanta’s housing market continues to rise, new construction is becoming plentiful in the metro area. But old Atlanta is still scattered around the trendy neighborhoods . Faced with competition from newer homes, the older homes that make up Atlanta’s history are still viable. They’re waiting for new owners to come and lovingly bring them back to life.
Atlanta is rich in history. It’s old homes are everywhere. Restoration is being increasingly important in order for Atlanta to hold onto its beautiful historic past. As new construction goes up, the older homes are being neglected and forgotten about. These are the homes, set in that up and coming neighborhood that get overlooked because they haven’t been cared for in a long time. Instead of buying a newer home in the same neighborhood, sometimes for double and triple the price, grab that older home and take on a fixer upper!
When purchasing an older home, many homeowners are faced with the tough decision of doing a complete gut and remodel or trying to restore the home to its former glory. In a lot of aspects, complete remodels do not have to be necessary in an older home. Homes built many years ago were constructed to last. With that said, ripping out older fixtures may not be the right path for your classic home.
One decision to make when tackling an older home is what to do with the bathroom. In very old homes, there are usually claw foot tubs, porcelain sinks and tile that isn’t being produced anymore. Bathtub refinishing has become a very popular trend recently. Not only in older homes, but in rental properties and hotels where tubs see a lot of activity.
A bathtub is often the focal point of a bathroom, especially in historic homes. If it looks scummy, grungy or run-down, the rest of your bathroom will too. These flaws don’t have to stay forever though. Instead of scrapping that old claw foot tub and installing a new, costly soaker tub, you can easily restore and transform the existing one. For a fraction of the cost.
Bathtub refinishing is a quick and easy process that will take that older, well-constructed tub and restore it to its former glory. It was most likely loved by its former owners and now you can love it too! Bathtub refinishing will also save you tons of money so you can focus on other projects that need more attention.
