New York, NY (February 16, 2010) – As the housing market stabilizes, now’s the time to find masterfully crafted homes in communities that truly appreciate them. The editors of This Old House magazine have tracked down 51 great neighborhoods that have promising futures, people that care, and homes that truly deserve a long-term commitment. The Best Old-House Neighborhoods appear in the March issue, on newsstands February 19th, and online at www.thisoldhouse.com/best-places.

This Old House scoured the United States, and Canada, to find unique, tight-knit neighborhoods for their third annual search for the Best Old-House Neighborhoods. These places might not be on your radar, but deserve to be, according to the magazine’ editors.

This Old House magazine (p.34) and ThisOldHouse.com feature 51 great spots that fit the criteria of old-house neighborhoods –architectural diversity, craftsmanship of the homes, and the preservation momentum in the area as well as neighborhood amenities including walkability, safety and community. With the help of PreservationDirectory.com, neighborhood groups, real estate agents, and preservation societies, This Old House compiled their list of the best places to track down, fix up, and fall head over heels for. The National Association of Realtors, the voice of real estate, is the sponsor of the 2010 Best Old-House Neighborhoods list.
