Please read the FAQ’s at the bottom of the contact form as your question may already be answered.
See your home here and want it removed? Enter the address in the contact form below with your request. (DMCA Policy) If you are looking for historical information about your home, it’s helpful to keep the address & photos on the site as previous owners or previous owner descendants could help with your search or provide old photos.
Want OHD to feature your home or listing?
I no longer accept submissions via the old submission form nor am I posting by-owner listings. To submit your listing or home, find the latest “Link Exchange” post: 1) go to the home page, look at the top post that says “Link Exchange”, click on the post. 2) Near the top of the page it says “Click here to jump to comment box.”, click. 3) See the comment box? Paste your link (need instructions finding a link/url?) in the comment box. Include a build date, price and city/state with your link. Hit “Post Comment” when ready to submit your comment/share.
I pick out the best shares for posting but do not guarantee your home or listing will be added to OHD as it’s own post. This includes reader shares as well. I do not charge to add homes to OHD but I also will not post homes unless they are incredibly original or have interesting architectural features. I do not respond to submissions.
How do I subscribe so I won’t miss a post?
Sign up for the newsletter! The newsletter is sent out at the end of a posting day. Newsletter sign-up can be found on the right side of the home page. Or click here for the 3 day a week newsletter for an email every 3 days instead of every day. I do not recommend following with Facebook or Twitter since they do not show you all new posts.
Why isn’t my comment highlighted? I’m an OHD Supporter!
You MUST be registered (click here to register.) You must be signed in when commenting after you are registered.
I’m signed up for the newsletter but can’t sign into my OHD account.
Signing up for the newsletter doesn’t mean you have an OHD account. If you’ve never gone through the registration page and created an OHD account, it means you don’t have an OHD account.
How do I change my profile pic/avatar (as in the pic beside your comment name)?
You must have an OHD account (register here). At the top of the website, under the page header (phone users it’s the little lines), click “My Profile”; scroll down and find the avatar section. Click “Browse” or “Choose Image”, when you get a popup go to where you’ve saved the avatar on your computer and upload. The image you upload will automatically be scaled to 96×96. After uploading, don’t forget to click “Update Avatar”.
How do I register on OHD? Does it cost anything?
Click here to register on OHD. No fees to register, emails are kept private. You must login once a year to keep your account active. The benefits of registering: custom avatar in comments, ability to save house posts to your favorite house list.
How do I search by state or only show homes for sale?
For computer and most tablet users, look on the right hand side of the home page for the drop downs that allow you to choose status, state, style, etc. If you are on a phone, scroll down toward the bottom until you see the drop downs.
Why are off market and sold homes left on the site?
“Not for sale” and sold homes are kept on the site so we can see what happens, allows the new owners to connect to former or descendants of owners and to continue admiring.
I wish you would only show “For Sale” houses….
You can view only the houses that are for sale by using the drop downs on the side menu (phone users, scroll toward the bottom of the home page), pick “For Sale” from the Status drop down. Note, just because a home is marked “For Sale” doesn’t guarantee that’s a current status, always contact the agent for more details.
Can you find a house for me or only send me houses in X state or for X price?
Sorry, that’s impossible both because of time and the newsletter can not be set up that way.
What does “National Register” mean?
Most people think having a home on the National Register means you can’t paint your home or make changes without going through the “National Register Board”. There’s more too it than that. Check out what the National Park Service has to say, regarding the National Registry.
