Value of vintage details // comparative
We just looked at a home we are considering purchasing. There is a very good comparative house for this house -- another row house in the same block, built at the same time, same square feet, etc that sold recently. A big difference is that the other house had been renovated such that all vintage details were removed. The house we are considering has a lot of original features, like fireplaces and woodwork. The previous owners tried to restore some details with modern fixtures, too (including some ugly Victorian-style wallpaper).
How do I get a sense of how this would affect the comparative value? We are not particularly Victorian afficionados; I like the wood and high ceilings but would probably be just as happy in a more modern decorated place.
Is there any way to assess how the vintage details would affect resale value, and thus the price we might offer?
Your thoughts are appreciated!
