Ever wonder why these classic homes have two front doors?  I do, too.  Because Google holds all the answers, I threw the question into the search bar.  It seems like the consensus is that the second door was to accommodate multiple generations of families living in a home (think The Waltons…Grandma and Grandpa could have their own door), or to facilitate subletting a part of the house for extra income.  No matter the reason, it sure adds a lot of curb appeal!

STL City Home Rises Over Four Thousand Percent in Value!

…….But it took 114 years.

Here’s a fun advertisement I found while doing some otherwise unrelated historical research (the real estate ads distracted me):

4156 Castleman 1900 5200

(St. Louis Republic, June 10, 1900; $5,200)

4156 Castleman in more recent listing

(St. Louis MLS, ca. 2014; $219,900)

STL Republican June 10 1900 interest rates

 

 

 

 

 

 

If the original buyer of that home got a loan, they probably paid more interest than a buyer today would, 115 years later!

One more interesting clip:

Granitoid Walks?  Telford Streets?  What do these terms mean?  Anyone?

If you have any SERIOUS real estate questions, please give me a call!
