DozerMid-Century Modernist Houses are Endangered!

When bulldozers are on the way to Modernist houses, people tend to blame developers - which is unfair. Developers come only after many opportunities to save a house have been ignored. The real enemies: vacancy, time, and unrealistic selling prices.

When homes are vacant, they decay faster. They are more susceptible to weather and vandalism when no one is around to care.  Without active owners (or tenants), vacant houses suffer a slow, painful deterioration often resulting in demolition. 

We preserve North Carolina Modernist houses by keeping them occupied. As part of our ongoing mission of preservation, this list reduces time on the market and gets these Modernist houses the caring occupants they deserve - faster.
