For sale

My mom was going through her parents’ old family photos and ran across this newspaper clipping announcing the sale of their San Francisco house for $16,500 in 1951.

Here is a screen shot of that same house today:

I wish my Nana was around to see the current photo. I have a feeling she would have disliked the brown. I’m sure the present valuation would have shocked her too: almost $1.4 million. Yowza. 

I guess I can’t complain about Seattle real estate; we don’t even compare when it comes to San Fran.
