There are some tremendous financial benefits to being an owner of a historic home. One advantage is strong resale value. Buyers of historic homes tend to be very passionate about their affinity for vintage properties, which benefits owners when it's time to sell. The second benefit includes state and federal tax credits which reward owners for making improvements to their historic homes.
