Modern Real Estate Marketing For Historic Properties

The hottest real estate markets in the US—New York, Boston, San Francisco, and yes, Detroit—are all historic. And according to the National Trust For Historic Preservation, Millennials (and Babyboomers) are on the march downtown again. They want to bike to work, walk their kids to school, and be surrounded by cafes, music, and the conveniences of metropolitan living.

All I Want For Christmas Is An Historic Southern Home

We’ve been shortchanged for the past three Christmas holidays on the gift front so we figure we’ve racked up a pretty good favor bank with Santa. This year we’re wishing for that historic Southern Charm home that we’ve been endlessly searching for—low country architectural character, a long oak lined driveway, mint juleps on the front porch, the works. We sent Santa our Southern property wish list last week. We’ll see how many columns and chimneys he can cram into his sack.

Property Envy: Own An Authentic Piece Of The South

Every region of America has its own signature historic architecture descended from its first settlers and early economic development that gives it a certain uniqueness and visual character.

Throwback Thursday: A Vintage Trailer Renovation You Won’t Believe

Find Everything Historic’s newest columnist on home, decor, and interior design, Brie Dyas, is passionate about all things authentic and retro, and we love her ‘Mad Men’ style. Whether it’s a vintage renovation, her love of old books, or her unique creative lens to be able to see anything modern in an historic light, Dyas will delight you with her wit, charm, and in-depth reporting. It’s also fitting that her first column for Find Everything Historic is about a vintage travel trailer restoration in a classic mid-century trailer park Palm Springs, California, since we’re about to embark on our own vintage Airstream renovation. You’ll never think of ‘mobile homes’ in the same way again. Like Dyas our only question is: When can we move in?!

Plunge Pools: Back To Nature

No matter where you go in the world where the sand meets the sea—San Tropez, South Beach Miami, Grand Bahama, the Great Barrier Reef—few things are more humanly ritualistic than just walking chest deep into a pool of water or the ocean and doing nothing. When that experience is replicated in an historic property in your own private nature-inspired oasis it’s called a ‘plunge pool’. Just ask the Japanese Snow Monkeys.

Dream Towns: Newport, Rhode Island

Real estate and travel are eternally intertwined especially where historic properties are involved. So it’s only logical that our newest column, Dream Towns, is a combination of both.

In Dream Towns we’ll be bringing to you the most historic, eclectic, off-the grid, off-the-charts, culturally-rich, historically-significant, and inspiringly revitalized towns across America where you can happily spend a weekend or the rest of your life.
