What’s YOUR House Style?

One of the most difficult things for some home buyers to decide is what style of home they want to buy. Sure you’ve got the three bedrooms, two and a half bath and 2 stall attached garage down but architectural style isn’t always something a buyer thinks about until after seeing a home or two.

Looking at listings on the internet, a home buyer is able to view the images of many types of homes. Some will have descriptions like, ranch, contemporary or bungalow. But many buyers have know idea of what these styles are...heck, some real estate agents will misuse the terms too!

I just came across this awesome tool for home buyers! It is an Architectural Guide to Residental Homes  The guide defines with drawings and descriptions what 33 popular styles of homes look like and the history of that design. Home buyers who review this information will have no trouble determining whether a saltbox or Tudor is their favorite style when their REALTOR® asks!
