In this installment of UrbanTurf Reader Asks, a DC resident looking to put his home on the market inquires if buyers in the city will pay a premium for historic character over open floor plans and upgrades.
I plan on putting my nearly all-original home up for sale eventually, and have a couple questions. In our times of open floor plans and high-end features, is there still a market for original dark wood trim, 5-panel doors, and original but sometimes squeaky parquet floors? And are people willing to pay more for these details? I would love some insight into this question as it will dictate how the home will be marketed and priced. Thanks!
