Real Estate: Recycling Houses

Date:

Share post:

recycled housesToday is Verona’s annual Green Fair and Town-Wide Garage Sale, two great examples of environmentalists’ mantra to reduce, re-use and recycle. Real estate also gets recycled in Verona, where re-modeling and rehabbing still thankfully outweigh tear-downs and rebuilding. That’s one of the benefits of having a public school system that families keep wanting to re-use, generation after generation.

Look through the 11 new listings and  15 open houses, and you’ll find more than a few properties with updates to kitchens, baths and even garages and patios. One note: If you buy in Verona, you will have to get used to having your house identified by the name of its previous owner. We recycle those too. This reporter grew up in Mayor Howe’s house; you might be told you live at the O’Toole’s, the Connell’s, the Morris’ or the Wilson’s if you buy this weekend. Such is life in a small town.

Here’s what’s happening in each category, from lowest priced to highest:
