Hi, I've been looking for a family home in Hobart and thinking to make an offer on a heritage listed property. The current owner has been living in the house for decades. He's already done extensive restoration and renovation through the house especially for the bathroom and kitchen. Its location, size, structure and condition all suit our family pretty well. It appears we are not going to be overpaying for what the property is worth, taking into account it has been on the market for quite a while comparing to other similar properties. However, I have heard from friends on the expensive maintenance and complicated work/development process associated with the heritage building. I have also obtained the works guidelines from heritage Tasmania and will engage their adviser in the onsite inspection. I'd love to know your thoughts on buying heritage listed houses, your experience and opinions on pros and cons, especially on how difficult, inconvenient and costly it is for a family with small kids to live in such a home. Any information will be greatly appreciated.
