For people who love old houses — and love to work on them — the notion of buying a fixer-upper can be irresistible. Sounds good, right? Often, it is. But buying a fixer-upper can be fraught with peril. So before you take the plunge, make sure you have a realistic idea of what you’re getting yourself into.
Preservation Network is a series of free workshops held once every month on the second Saturday. The monthly workshops feature guest speakers who are specialists in windows, flooring, roofing, stained glass, tile, plumbing, electrical, and more. Other guest speakers have included experts in real estate sales and appraisals, and city codes and zoning officials who discuss historic overlays and building requirements.
