The family home

This was my parents house. It's only a mile south of are present home. I just met the present owner of of the house and he inquired if I had any early picture of the house. This picture was taken about 1943. The empty block to the right looked like the Everglades. As a youngster I could walk 10 feet into that untouched land and be in the middle of a jungle. Things have changed. Can anyone guess the price of the house in 1940 and what the present owner considers would be a fair price today?
