A real estate question. Is a Victorian worth more per square foot than a Craftsman just do to the age? For those of you who have followed my adventures, you know I'd fallen in love with a craftsman but it sold before my house in Oakland. Now that my house fell out of escrow I'm in the market for another house again. Yesterday I stumbled across an amazing Victorian. About the same square footage as the Craftsman I fell in love with but about $100,000 more. The Victorian is indeed a house I could fall in love with. From just a quick tour of the house yesterday, I think it needs more work than the craftsman did and I'm trying to figure out how to justify the price difference(or to negotiate a substantially reduced price). The two houses are within 5 or 6 blocks - the block the craftsman is on is filled with craftsmen and Victorian houses. The Victorian stands out a bit in the block its on - the other houses seem to have been built more recently, there are no other Victorians on the block(I'd guess the other houses were built in the 50's and up).
