Why research your home's past? Because every home and every neighborhood has a story to tell and a past to be re-discovered.
You may want to research your home for many reasons but for most of us it comes down to just three:
Make a connection with home you live in.
Most of our clients are seeking to learn more about the past occupants and their place in the community, their way of life or maybe just more information about the year it was built and those who participated in it's construction. There are many reasons to make that connection.
To reconnect with past loved ones with ties to a particular home.
Tracing one's roots thru an ancestral home place is like opening a door to one's lineage, as you never know what or who you will find. It can be quite surprising and rewarding.
To add value to an already historical beauty.
Making the property more marketable is a very valid reason for researching a home when one is ready to sell. There are many buyers who only wish to live in an older home with a rich history or even with an historical placement.
What will you find when you unlock your doors?
