Historic Residential Properties: Marketing Advantages & Financial Incentives
“Teaching REALTORS® about the values and incentives associated with historic properties is exciting. There is so much misinformation out there. It’s a benefit to buyers and sellers when the right information gets out to everyone.” – Todd Hays, Podley Properties Realtor
This past Monday, more than 50 Realtors attended this half-day workshop in Palm Springs on historic residential properties. Guest speakers assisted Realtors, homeowners and preservationists by identifying financial, tax, and regulatory incentives.
These incentives can be used to offset rehabilitation & maintenance costs of historic homes – and are an effective marketing tool as well! Focused towards Realtors, case examples illustrated the incentives available at the state and local level, the associated eligibility requirements and how to gain access to financial incentives for historic preservation.

Part of a tract of World War II-era homes built as worker housing
Modernism Week events are ongoing in Palm Springs and plenty of pedigreed homes are up for grabs in the desert city. Case in point: this cozy post and beam by influential modern architect Albert Frey.
The simple residence was constructed in 1946 as part of a tract of homes commissioned as worker housing and designed by Frey at the tail end of World War II. The houses all feature identical floor plans, but different positions on each lot and unique paint jobs so as not to appear too uniform.
This house has plenty of modern style, with wide windows, tiled bathrooms, and plenty of indoor-outdoor access. The 1,150-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with an airy kitchen with a vintage stove and refrigerator.
The house sits on a 10,000-square-foot lot, with a large driveway, attached garage, grassy backyard, and spa/swimming pool. There’s even an outdoor shower—partially enclosed for privacy.
Asking price is $749,000. Worth noting: The home’s historic credentials qualify its owner for some tax breaks under California’s Mills Act.
