This is awesome – thanks to a reader for sending:
“You listed an apartment @ 1201 Clifton St NW [$1,875/Mo], for a 2 bedroom, 1bath earlier this week. But check this ad from June 4, 1910 from Washington Times. Same place but the whole house for $7,750 and came with gas or electric lighting.
Also 1211 Clifton St, the home on the far left of the original ad just sold this past Sept, 2015 for $1.4 million. So $7,750 in 1910 – $1.4million in 2015, talk about return in your investment!”
