The Working Man’s Mansion

From the Windsor Star Classifieds in October, 1971.

Here’s the “Mansion” today. It’s a fact that our real estate hasn’t increased in value over the years, in fact Windsor has some of the most affordable property in the country. This house was listed for $26,900 in 1971. That amount is equal to $151,690 in 2010 dollars.

Interesting to note that despite 39 years having passed since the ad was placed, the house looks almost identical.


As a side note, you may be experiencing intermittent server outages over the next few days. If that occurs, don’t worry. The webhost that holds IM.com, our good friends over at @Detroit are moving this and several other of their sites over to a new server shortly. So if you make your way over here and find a page cannot be displayed error, don’t worry. Most of the time these transitions are painless, but I always try to prepare for the unexpected. 🙂
