Hi all! It's Julie Farmer once again. Today, I decided to write about what I think of the Victorian District in Savannah as a lot of people have heard about it or seen it on television but may not fully know what it means to us for all Savannahians, especially in terms of real estate. You will find yourself in the Victorian District when you go south of the Savannah Historic District. This part of the city is 50 blocks in size, sometimes I would imagine how nice it was to live here during the late 19th century. These are the kind of homes that dotted the landscape of urban America over 120 years ago. Victoria and Albert would both feel right at home.

Victorian Architecture at Its Best

The Victorian District was formally listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, and this may surprise you but it was a Savannah suburb in the 19th century. The style of architecture is amazing! You’ll find gingerbread trim and stained-glass windows as some of the notable features. These are homes that have a delightful charm which is almost irresistible. Many people would love to be able to own one of these houses. It is quite possible but there are some cautionary notes. These homes look a certain way for a very definite reason.

National Landmarks have Specific Requirements

A house that is a historical landmark has certain requirements about the exteriors. The structure must look like it did back in the day, and the historical landmark people are insistent on that. If you wish to buy a house in Victorian District, you have to be prepared to respect the "historic" conditions. A good real estate agent is going to find out what you can and cannot do with such a house. Unfortunately, many real estate agents are just concerned about selling the property. Live Love Savannah goes the extra mile to help a client.

We Care about the Client

If you want to buy property in the Victorian District, a Live Love Savannah agent is going to find what you’re looking to buy. We first listen very carefully to what your needs are and do our very best to fill those needs. If there are any special requirements for the house, we share that information with you. You do not find out at the closing that you cannot do certain renovations; you’ll hear about that before you even make an offer. We do the research. If an owner has the opportunity to do any interior renovation, we check on it. We also make sure about any interior repair work that still needs to be done on the house. That knowledge is important because it can affect the negotiations on the final price.

You also might want to buy a thoroughly modern residence and we can help with that as well. Live Love Savannah real estate agents are full-time professionals who understand the Savannah real estate market. We know what is currently for sale, and we can help you get viewings and know as much as possible about the neighborhood before you sign the papers. It is the small things that make our service so valuable. We pride ourselves on being a boutique real estate agency that helps a person get as much return on investment as is possible.

The Victorian district is not the only area in Savannah that is full of bygone charm. There are other areas with houses full of history for you to take a look at. We can show you around, and let you know where important things are such as schools, churches, and police stations. Live Love Savannah is committed to providing full service to any client who seeks our help. You may be wondering about all we have to offer. We want to be able to respond to all your questions and share information with you.
