It has been estimated that restoration's market share growth will exceed 80 percent of the entire US construction economy in the near future. As the country begins to explore sustainability, both in terms of the economy and the environment, buying and selling existing buildings, rather than developable lots, will increasingly become any realtor's main bread-and-butter.
Historic properties are valuable to potential buyers because of their existing infrastructure and in numerous other ways; such as stable property values; aesthetically pleasing neighborhoods; and materials, construction and design that cannot affordably be reproduced today.
