how do a find the original sales price of a three flat building purchased for 52,000, at 7715 s sangamon, in the auburn gresham area of chicago ?

Asked by Simeon, Auburn Gresham, Chicago, IL Sat Jun 19, 2010

two people disputed that properties were sold for that in 1964, of which i know my relatives did. any general resources to get median values of that time would help.

A couple of my colleagues grew up in Auburn Gresham. The home they grew up in we purchased in the early 60's for 13,000 and 15,000 respectively. It's possible that a building could have sold for that, but not likely. They feel that it would have sold for somewhere between 17000-25000.

You could always check the cook county recorder of deeds for an exact last sale amount. There records are available online for a small fee.

There is no record of a previous sale in the tax records. This means it was probably sold quite some time ago. They could be right on that price.
