In 1962, my parents bought the lot to build the home i grew up in.
We were one of the first five families in the beanfield. The kids walked to the corner to meet the bus, then rode around for it seemed the entire morning before getting to school.
There were 11 busses for the entire district.
Then, in the year or two after i graduated, the district really begain to grow.
Home Prices 1960sMy parents paid $23,000 for the 3/4 acre lot and 3BR, 2 bath ranch with full basement.
In Avon, IN.
Home Prices 1970sWhen i was in college, i gave a lift to a fellow student whose family was "friends of friends" pf my mom. She had heard of the family's $150,000 home. Awestruck, she asked me to report to her on what the presumed mansion looked.
It was nothing fancy. It was nice, nicely furnished, but the lot was small, & the ranch home was smaller than ours.
No basement, but there was a fireplace.
Things Change, Things Stay the SamePrices vary widely these days, but you can search going prices in Indiana & see what homes are fetching now.
i'm told we pay taxes based on tables drawn up in the 1970s. Are prices in line with that?
