Most Houses Are Easily Defined By Historical Time Periods

Are you selling a house? Thinking about a “move up” or “scale down”? Now is most likely the best time to sell, maximize the cash out of your home and take advantage of a tremendous windfall in home appreciation. The value of your house is influenced by the characteristics and style of architecture, and Matt Quagliano has over 30 years of experience dealing with a multitude of different types of homes.

Late 1800s, earliest 1900s

Some of the most beautifully, architecturally rich homes were built around 1900. Grand foyers, multiple fireplaces and tremendous windows not only offer beauty, but were necessities of the time before electricity and central heat systems. Over the years, systems have been modernized for utility, but there is a distinct, often passionate buyer seeking a classic turn of the 20th century Victorian or colonial. Matt knows the distinction of these homes and will draw the emotional response from a buyer passionately seeking a historic home. Matt has firsthand knowledge of mortgage financing options available that can include restoration and rehab funds to further restore these homes.

1920s, Industrial Revolution

Houses built within the industrialization of America tended to retain many classic architectural features but became easier to maintain as much of the “live-in help” that was plentiful prior, left the house for an explosion of factory jobs. The Craftsman Bungalow became very popular within the era, as it embraced the many classic and beautiful features of the previous era yet offered a living space that was manageable. There is a distinct and strong-willed group of buyers for this type house and Matt knows how to highlight the features and history of these homes to the exact the top sale price.

Multi-Family Homes

Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, there was an explosion of two-family homes built throughout various neighborhoods in Buffalo. These greatly appealed to working-class families that embraced the separate spaces which allowed extended families to live together but have their own home. It was common for multiple houses on the block to be owned and occupied by different generations of the same family. Today, these multi-family homes for sale are most appealing to younger buyers, who can easily obtain a mortgage, collect rent and live inexpensively while paying off student loan debt. Matt Quagliano is a master of mortgage and money analysis which can easily compel a buyer to embrace and see the value of these homes, often encouraging a multi-bidding situation that can push the ultimate sale price to the highest level.

1940s to 1950s, Suburban Life & Ranch Style Homes

With the advent of the suburbs and state, federal and local highway systems that connected areas with ease, a more contemporary and easy-to-maintain home became increasingly popular. These homes are often ranch-style and have stood the test of time. Many of the neighborhoods abundant with these types of homes appeal to multiple market segments, from the youngest buyer looking for a starter home, to the older homeowner hoping to retire into a manageable, one-floor home. Matt Quagliano knows how to highlight the appeal of these homes and offer advice on inexpensive updates that can increase home value.

Modern-Day Era Homes

Throughout the suburbs and in smaller pockets of the city, younger homes appeal to buyers seeking a neighborhood experience and a home that combines modern and functional attributes with many classic features that mimic architecture characteristics common in the earlier times. Matt Quagliano is a pro at developing a timeline to help the seller get the most equity out of a sale along with a simultaneous close and move.
