…….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):
(St. Louis Republic, June 10, 1900; $5,200)
(St. Louis MLS, ca. 2014; $219,900)
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!
