A text from a friend:
- So my sister is doing family research and found this (Butler between Smith & Hoyt) is where my grandparents first lived as newlyweds with their first child. It was 1930, they were 23 & 26 and according to the census they paid $25 a month rent.
Hmm what would it go for now? Lol.
The property she asked about had not been on the market for 20 years, so I looked up recent sales and rental activity of comparable properties in the neighborhood.
- The two family house on Butler has a projected value of $2.4 million. One bedrooms on the block currently rent for $1,800 to $3,200 a month – 76 to 128 times what your grandparents paid.
