Architectural Style : Puttin' On The Glitz ?

It's been said that the style of a home can affect it's value, it's worth, it's economic status. Does the architecture of a home really have an impact on the market value? As real estate agents, is it important for us to be familiar with the variety of architectural styles of homes throughout our country? What about the time periods that are associated with the various types of homes throughout America? I think about the romantic homes of the Italian Renaissance and the styles from ancient Rome. Columns, roofs that angle low and the ever-widening facade.

How will the community and the mood affect the architecture? Log cabins in the Ozarks and Smoky Mountains, adobe style homes in the desert, antebellum mansions of Savannah and Vicksburg in the old South, the homes in Martha's Vineyard that are braced for the icy cold winters.

Is location much of a factor today when a home is designed? It seems that, with all of the great new homebuilding techniques, inventive and aspiring to retrofit, in most instances, adding a component or accessory to a house that did not have it in the past when it was manufactured has become a standard for a new home regardless of where the foundation begins and ends. Will the day arrive when we begin to see Igloos in Southern Florida or Pink Flamingos in a yard in Northern Alaska? I already know that the global warming crowd will thrash me on the last question.... :-)

Hope everyone's having a great week !
