Our Concept of Old and Historic

Historic Properties of VA is a Frederick County, Virginia real estate firm dedicated to presenting and preserving older homes and properties. As noted in our Mission statement below, we mainly deal with properties that are older – with the general concept of what is labeled “historic”. It mimics the same factor as old vehicles – a moving target of those items that are 50 or more years old. As you see – that house built in 1956 in a Levitz subdivision may be considered “historic” – strange as that may seem.
Our label usually looks to those properties built before 1940 as the styles and look tend to register in the public mind as “something out of the past”. We reach back to the 1700s log structures that are still standing and being lived in today.

The Concept of Recycling

Recycling concepts have taken on considerable weight in the recent years. The general idea for recycling has been directed toward consumables: paper, plastic, metal and glass. The efforts have been so successful in terms of quantity that around the U.S numerous areas have been forced to restrict the intake of these materials. The items overload the recycling centers and the demand for the recycled products has been reduced to the point that agencies cannot resell the raw product and have to pay to have it hauled away. AND it may still end up in landfills instead of being recycled.

We see a bright side when it comes to older real estate properties: Old houses or buildings end up recycled through renovations. They provide housing without using up agricultural or native land, they provide jobs, the demand is there, older materials are sought out for reuse, and ... they “look neat”!
