Are there any problems buying a house built in 1930s or 1940s? Do they devalue with time?

I am planning to buy a house in Newcastle, there are lots of homes which are built in 1930s and 1940s, and very few newer homes in the high Heaton area where I am looking for a house, is there any risk of devaluation with time of a house which is already 60 to 70 years old?

  • Absolutely not. 1930's properties for instance can be highly sought after. It all comes down things such as size, location and overall condition etc. Older properties which have been lovingly looked after can come at a higher premium than new builds.

  • Hi. Not at all, in actual fact properties built in the 1930s and 40's were built to a very good standard and pose no risk at all for purchasing.
