Ferndale, Wash. and Austin, Texas (PRWEB) December 06, 2012
Historic home owners in Austin, Texas and northwest Washington state who wish to research, preserve and share their house’s history now have a convenient option. Houstory recently partnered with house history researchers in these areas to offer new home history package deals.
Houstory is the creator of The Home History Book archival journal, a luxury scrapbook printed and bound in the United States that’s designed to record a home’s genealogy. While the journal is normally purchased blank, this new package deal allows customers to easily ‘add-on’ professional house history research service from the Houstory.com shopping cart. Research findings can then be used to fill in the “Our Home’s Beginning” section of the book.
“House history research isn’t for everyone. It can take time and effort – specifically for older, historic homes,” said Dan Hiestand, Houstory marketing director. “While the majority of the journal is designed to tell the current homeowners’ story – it’s like a ‘living time capsule’ for the home – the ‘Beginning’ section highlights the home’s past. Some of our customers have stated they prefer professional assistance when it comes to researching, due to time constraints or convenience. They now have an choice.”
House historians who partner with Houstory have been personally vetted by the company, and must display a proven track record of house history research in their locales.
Hiestand said he expects the package to be popular, particularly with luxury real estate agents seeking new options for home staging and closing gifts, as well as historic bed and breakfast owners looking to share the story of their properties with guests. He added Houstory would be announcing new package deals in cities around the U.S. in the near future.
