There's no doubt about it: Vintage is in vogue.
In fact, vintage is so in vogue that when homeowners who haven't updated their homes prepare to sell, some real estate agents are actually telling them to keep everything as is.
Potential buyers open the doors to be thrown back in time by intensely flowered wallpaper, mismatched patterns, pink bathrooms, mossy green kitchens, mirrored chandeliers or built-in dial radios.
In Omaha, Jim Hill maintained his 1949 home exactly as it appeared when he was young. He loves to remember his boyhood there, and so the home went untouched, design-wise, for nearly half a century.
"As a young boy I planted a walnut [tree], and look at it now, taller than the telephone poles," he told Yahoo Homes. "We had a vinyl red and chrome luncheonette corner table in the kitchen. There were also metal airplane fixtures in the basement. ... There is a laundry chute from upstairs to downstairs. ... And yes, the radio [built into one of the home's wood-paneled walls] does work."
He and his wife, Janice, listed the time capsule home at $95,000 over the summer. It closed in September at their asking price, according to Realtor.com.
