Just when you think your property is TOO challenging . . .

When you specialize in ~ because you LOVE ~ vintage homes and buildings, their history and their stories, sometimes the grand Victorian mansion comes your way . . . and sometimes it's just the opposite.

Welcome to 1210 N. Main Street in Salisbury, North Carolina. The North Main Street Historic District, one of (10) districts in Salisbury, runs straight through the center of the North Main Neighborhood, affectionately known as NOMA. North Main Street is the last remaining residential corridor leading to the City of Salisbury's downtown center, and is lined with period homes representing residential architecture from 1900 through the early 1930s.

When Realtor® Greg Rapp listed 1210 N. Main Street, he knew this was one of those challenges. In rugged condition, this work-in-progress Victorian vernacular home is on record as a circa 1924 structure, although the design and other details relate strongly to an earlier date, perhaps more like 1900. With plenty - and we mean plenty - of elbow grease, this home could easily be a very nice 3 bedroom / 2 bath home and still have a large living room, kitchen and dining room. Luckily, lots of period millwork remained in the home.

This home needed a complete restoration and was being sold 'AS-IS' and, if that were not enough in the challenge department: CASH only.

BUT . . .

The reason Greg Rapp is known as the Preservation Professional and the area's Historic House Expert is demonstrated once again at 1210 N. Main Street. Listed 06/24/19, under contract 06/27/19, and closed 07/11/19 . . . this is how a real estate agent earns this type of recognition.

AND . . .

Listen to what the sellers of 1210 N. Main Street had to say (posted to NextDoor.com):

"Greg Rapp Superstar! 

I just wanted to take a minute and sing the praises of Greg Rapp! It was such a pleasure to sit back and watch someone wield a craft they have honed to perfection! If anyone knows Historic Salisbury and her homes and how to sell them it’s Greg! Our home had challenges in multiple areas and I’m sure was not the easiest he has been asked to move but Greg never had a negative word and really encouraged us to seek what we wanted. I had fears as the house next door had languished for months under another agent even though it was in better shape than ours, Greg faced it head on. Our house was under contract within 48 hours of Greg putting up his sign, I am convinced that this result was because of the way Greg works his market and has a following. If you are looking to sell OR buy in NOMA please don’t look at anyone else besides Greg Rapp."

AND . . . (the following thread ensued):

• Seconded!  ~ Erin Wood, NOMA North Main Neighborhood

• We have talked to him and we feel like he is exactly who we needed! Congrats on selling so quickly.  ~ Diane Peoples, NOMA North Main Neighborhood

• I would also concur!  ~ Jacqueline Millican, NOMA North Main Neighborhood

• I bought my house from Greg Rapp in 2008. He was great then and he is even greater now.  ~ Marty Martinez, Fulton Heights Neighborhood

• To add to the respect he brings, when Greg appears before City Council, his opinions are well thought-out, thorough, straight-forward, supportable, and honest.  
~ City of Salisbury City Councilperson David Post, W. Innes Street Neighborhood

And the rest, as they say, is history.
