Savannah Ga Homes - Victorian and Thomas Square/Starland Districts

Savannah’s Victorian District and Thomas Square Streetcar District are good alternatives for those buyers trying to avoid the higher prices of downtown Historic District, but still be minutes away from downtown Savannah. Here is a link to the National Register of Historical Places to give you an idea of Savannah’s historical significance and a little information about architectural styles.

There are still many homes in these districts that are in disrepair but there are many areas/neighborhoods that are being transformed, offering opportunities for investors, couples or individuals looking for multi-family homes to use unit rentals as a way to offset the mortgage, or families looking for space and a private yard.

Many of these old homes have good bones and the systems have been updated through the years by various owners. Not only does the Victorian and Thomas Square districts provide a good alternative regarding price, the location makes it easy to access downtown, all of midtown, the islands and the interstate, I-16.

There are many new businesses coming into these districts but it is mainly residential, with styles including: Queen Anne, Folk Victorian, Italianate, Neoclassical Revival, Colonial Revival, Beaux Arts and Craftsman.

It is important when buying one of these homes to make sure your purchase offer includes very specific verbiage concerning the inspection process – you want to fully protect yourself from any surprises. You also need good information about the area trends and comparable sales in the area during the last six months or so.

I am always happy to give anyone who so desires a tour of the area and to provide up-to-date statistics. I love showing these homes; it’s always an interesting pleasure.
