Affordable Housing, $1,830

New 2 str, 7 rms., bth, des. loc., 2 lts, $1,830. What a deal, a brand new house in Fortuna and on two lots! The ad states, "This property is a splendid investment." No kidding. The CPI calculator says that price is equivalent to about $46,000 in today's dollars. If you triple that you might have enough to buy one lot today... maybe.
