Antique Homes & Replicas

Welcome to The Adams Home Team, Antique Properties page. We have had the privilege to represent a number of Antique Home sellers and buyers over the past few years and have an acute appreciation for the intrinsic beauty and historic value of these properties but also some of the challenges inherent with this particular market.

In most homes there are some very special features that help define both the historical value as well as appeal to discriminating buyers of Antique homes. We take time to define these features and then wrap them into an aggressive marketing plan that includes our many standard marketing channels as well as avenues discrete to Antique Homes. It is important to focus on both since we have found buyers that were not initially looking for an Antique home. Our belief is that quality sells and exposing it to the broadest group of potential buyers will accelerate a successful sale.

The Adams Home Team is part of Keller Williams, the largest Real Estate company in the world with offices in over 80 countries. We tap into this asset as well in our effort to promote our listings. The market is now Global… so you need to be global.

If you are looking to purchase an Antique home, we have included some tools to make it easier to identify homes of interest in both New Hampshire as well as Massachusetts. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if there are any questions or you would like to move forward with the sale or purchase of your Antique home !
