Westcliestcr county lias concludco H banner year In real estate activity. Dur ing the war Westchester suffered In com mon with oilier' sections, both from an absolute paralysis of all building activity and from a dearth of buyers who had Vo'irage enough to Invest money In real estate. A great many foreslghted brokers fore jaw the aftermath even before tho closo of the war and did not hcWtato to advise their clients to pun-lins before the, ex pected line in the market. Tho man who accepted their advlco realizes now tho full value of tho prediction. An increasing shortage of the rental list and tho fact that no new houses were, being built dur ing tlio war wcie thg sure stjiiis ot what wus to be expected at the war's close. Immcjlately uftcr the signing of tho armistice tliero wus a period of readjust ment which seemed to Cover the period between November, IMS, and about Febru-; ary, 1919. Then people began to buy hi! Westchester and the spring aw a great volume of business. Tills activity con tinued throughout the summer and was followed by even greater activity In tho autumn, the market reaching Its peak about September, 1919. From statistics which I have gatheied from the title com panies,, broken, Ac, I estimate that least JlW.tyWv in A eMlieei- realty changed hands In lflO. Tlib tlilej"5xee(l have averaged about s,x hubilrcjjlionth and the average title Is about ?la!f"0. Drntnnil for Home. This shows a growing demand for the fine class of Westchester homes and estates. I do not know of any year which has nearly equalled 1M0 in Its volume t busliiMS. The IVlhams have been the pare setters for tho rest of tho county and they havo enloyed the most building of any section, They are closely followed, however, by Now Ijoeliellc, scnrstmip. tironxviiic, I L-lrclimont, Whlto 1'lnln and .Mount ' Vernon. The Hudson River towns during j the latter part of the. year showed signs of a growing ik-maml ror tins fvouon. j Tho activity lum not confined Itself to i any few sections, ns has sometimes betn the case In the past, but every section bns 'Witnessed an aggressive market, checkid only bv a limited supply of new houses, iN'eltlicv Is this a temporary boom. It Is a MeH.lily rising mark, t c.iuhc.1 l.j a!illi its twcp i ni r. u. natural Influx of NVw VorKera who want. docking un.l "Ippli.B ti.t;- t.. get away from apartment rents and tin i an induHrtnl railway nuLl ....

J Westchester Is only, coming into Its own only receiving what has been ex pected for many "years. The top of the market Is not' yet In sight and I believe Westchester offers a wonderful field to the Investor or speculative builder. Shortage f Ilnnne.i. This year will moro than equal 191?. Tho only dark spot on tho horizon for 1320 is tlio extreme shortage of ready built houses, Labor and material condi tions continue to bo dlccouragtug nnd must be stabilized. Xot that tjie pricet, of material or labor will come down I doubt If they will; but there must 1 some kiRsuriuico to the fpecultitlvc builder and to the home builder that these prices wilt not shoot up or the men walk out. on a strike, thereby delaying his operations.

Every 6ne la looking buck ward to Ih prices of 1914 nnd thinking tliut tliey art tho tiue stundnrd of value, but (hat this is an error Poems' quite pluln. It sccrn to me tliat ns soon us wc can c should st-iLllizn tlio prices of supplies for build ing, remembering that -those prices are certain to bo 'higher than those of 1914. As soon us this becomes plain to bor rower and 1-mdor the work of building will proceed. o appear to have entered upon a per manently high price lovel. A inudcrntc decline In price of building materials ma be expected as labor returns to produc tion and becomes more efficient. Thert seems to lie no likelihood of the waccs of labor being reduced, but when the i-irpen tcrs who have been making munitions and tho tailors who have worked as riveter? or electricians return to their trades labor will becomo more productive unit a result ant fall In prices is llkoly. Building ma terial" consist almost entirely of labor, and the only way to reduce their prices is t mako labor more offlctnt. If owners of building lots will tlgure the Interest and taxes they will save by build- Inir nnd tho increased rents they will re ceive for a long tlmo to come tncy will that waiting Is unprofitable. Need Terminal Market. The Bronx needs a wholesale terminal market because we are far from tho pri mary markets of lower Manhattan for our foodstuffs, wiucn must do irucxeu ir.i length of the city to the Bronx We us. annually about J200.00O,0o0 worth of food stuffs, and trucking alone cocts at least three per cent, making a chiwvc on llw fY.n.l tn tlin neonle ot the briiiBgli ot at least tS.000.tOO. ,l As we ate within the llshtcrago limits cars rontnlnlr.g foodstuffs would be deliv ered In the Bronx at tho same, rate that tlicy nre In tower Manhattan If e had t wholesale tcrrnjnal market. This does not rake into account the wearing out of the city's" pavements by this trucking and th( waste of time and food. W. need moro Industries.
