Introduction

Paraphrase

In some parts of the world, an increasing number of people are becoming interested in researching their home's past.

Thesis Statement

This is because they feel this can add thousands onto the value of their house. Interviewing older neighbours in the community can help gather enough information about one's home.

Body Paragraph 1

Topic Sentence

The main reason for such research is the possibility of adding resale value to the property concerned.  

Explanation

The boom of reality property shows in some countries has made people realise that an interesting history can make their house worth more in the housing market.

Example

For example, if someone were to discover a famous person once lived in their home, or if it were architecturally significant, this fact could attract much higher bids than otherwise.

Reinforcement

However, exciting as this might seem, it is more than likely that the house was occupied by ordinary people, but it is still fascinating to find out who they were.

Body Paragraph 2

Topic Sentence

Whatever the reason, there is a plethora of methods to carry out such research, both online and off.

Explanation

Asking the neighbours and local historical societies can provide clues to discover who the previous, possibly, famous owners were.

Example

For example, many older members of the community could be approached as they tend to know everything that goes on in a neighbourhood, and many local organisations have extensive online records that could be checked for information.

Reinforcement

With all this wealth of resources, it should be easy for the house historian to find out what they need.

Conclusion

Restate topic & main ideas

In conclusion, the growth of interest in property history can be ascribed to a desire to increase the value of the building. Thus, it is relatively easy these days to uncover the hidden past of house and home, whether of the building or its former occupants by methodical use of on and off-line sources.
