Historic Homes and Historic Preservation
Keith Goad, a Vintage and Historic Property Broker (Prudential Rubloff) gave a presentation on listing, buying, and maintaining a historic property. He is an active member of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust, Preservation Chicago, and Landmark Illinois, so he brought a lot of background and experience to the discussion.
  • We had a lot of questions and discussions about historic districts and their requirements for historic properties, as well as the guidelines for maintenance, and how to work with Landmarks to make updates to your own property.
  • We also talked about economic incentives for the repair and rehabilitation of historic buildings at the local and national level

Keith writes a blog about vintage property, that covers buying, selling, as well as historic preservation issues, and maintenance issues like foundations and windows.  It’s called Do You Speak Vintage? and can be found here.
