Well then!

I had an employee I was talking up the house to. I was asking him if he would pay all the cost to transfer the house to his land... ( shrug ) So much for that idea..

You know, those old houses often have gas appliances which are nice. Although the electrical wiring is sometimes unsafe. And the fireplace & chimney can sometimes be caked with creosote so you would want to be careful. And make sure you don't leave any lawn mower gas cans on the front porch when you fire up the Weber grill. :-D

I'm guessing it's the Heights area? Can you buy another lot in the Heights area and move the house there and make it a rental property? If I remember correctly the Heights can demand pretty good rental income. Or can you add on/remodel the existing house to fit your need? There is some benefits on property tax if you go that route.

Again, you might want to wait and see what the Legislature does on historical housing.

Or just a thought...can you make a deal with the seller to just knock down the house first and then you purchase the lot? The new buyer may have restrictions due to its historical nature but couldn't the current owner do whatever they want with the property?

Out of curiosity what is the penalty for taking down a historical property you own without city permission?
