Buying a home is an exciting endeavor, but there is a fair amount of vocabulary that you may not be familiar with. How many times have you driven down a neighborhood and pointed to a house that you liked but didn’t know what the style was called? Wonder no more! Here is an overview of the most popular styles of homes, like the Cape Cod style.
Cape Cod (1600’s Revived in 1930’s)
This style of home originated in the Northeastern corner of the US as the name would suggest. Traditionally the siding features wooden siding, however, the more modern styles may have stucco, stone or brick. The roof is steep with a shallow overhang. What makes this style iconic is the multi-paned windows, typically two on each side of the door, as well as the dormers on the roof.
