If you are planning to buy a house, what would you prefer? A costly new one or a cheaper older house ?
I know a lot of people would prefer a new house but there are also advantages in buying old home. Why ? One reason is the construction. Older houses were built with finest quality of materials which have withstood the test of time, where every detail has been attended with meticulous diligence. Materials used are those of the highest standard like the usage of penflex metal hose instead of the plastic used nowadays. Due to the high cost of materials today, some may choose sub-standard specification of materials.
Usually older homes are usually filled with beautiful architectural features . You just don’t know some of it are priceless decorations. Another advantage is the bigger spaces these homes offer. The size of new homes being constructed these days has greatly decreased due to increasing cost of land and materials. Older homes are usually located in downtown areas nearer to shopping centers, hospitals, restaurants and school.
Of course there are also some disadvantages in buying and older house but it’s really up to the owner to weigh the pros and cons.
