The older the house more the maintenance, but we are not going to talk about how to manage the maintenance cost. The other thing that we lose, is the heat efficiency. When the winter arrives the older homes are not that well equipped to fight the vicious cold and pass it in the rooms. Modern homes do not have such problems since they are well equipped to fight the cold temperature. But the problem is housing market is costly and you can’t just change your house right?
