По-моему, имеется в виду просто "carried on the books", а откуда там die взялось без остального контекста сказать сложно, может, просто ошибка.

Тогда перевод ясен: "стоят на балансе в ценах, существовавших до Гражданской войны"

Мне думается, что "die" имеет смысл и означает содержание на балансе ветхого жилья с запретом коммерческих операций с ним "dies non", что и стало причиной сохранения архаичных цен времен Гражданской войны...

тогда само выражение можно перевести как:
...числящиеся в архивных балансовых книгах без переоценки
