New Life For Old Churches

Some buyers find turning a church into a home or condo is trickier than they expected.

"As churches close for various reasons -- an urban church finds that most of its congregation has moved to the suburbs, for instance -- these buildings become available for other uses.

Because of their location, appearance, grounds, and high-quality construction,some attract hopeful buyers eager to transform them into individual homes or condos.

It's not necessarily as easy as it sounds, though..."
