There are old home buyers and there are new home buyers. New home buyers cringe at the thought of the old wooden windows rattling in the house, hold their shirts over their noses at the thought of lead paint in the house, and think “money pit” when they see an old house. Old home buyers see the incredible mill work and know that it would cost $50,000 to replicate that kind of craftsmanship today. They get lost in the arches, glass door knobs, and built-ins and think “they don’t build them like they used to.” If you are an old home buyer and want to look for a house in the Salem Oregon area, then there are a few neighborhoods where you would want to concentrate your effort.
