Renovating Old Savannah Homes

 I apologize for being away from the blog for so long. I've been busy renovating a duplex I've owned for awhile -- I worked on it when I first bought it, then got busy with real estate and just life in general, and now I'm back at it. I love renovating old homes. I don't know how to do everything, but I know what I can do and do it well.

Savannah is a good real estate town for anyone who wants to buy an old home at a bargain and fix it up. There are still investors flipping homes in Savannah, although that market is not as hot as it was around 2005. There are some builders who make their living in Savannah by rebuilding old homes. It's amazing how the Victorian era homes transform and come back to life with a lot of sweat and care. There are also a lot Craftsman style homes around Ardsley Park that people restore to their original detail.

Through the years, I've put together a list of plumbers, electricians, carpenters and general contractors who work on old homes. It's an art to do it right, although many people don't restore, they update. But for anyone who wants to restore an old home, feel free to give me a call and I will share my list with you. If you are in the market to buy an old home, Savannah is a great town in which to do it. From Victory to around Gaston there are still many, many old homes waiting to be renovated or restored. It's good to watch the area change and the older homes come to life.
