BUILDING REVIVAL
ADJACENT TO CITY
Permits in Nearby Montgomery
County, Md., Peach Highest
Known Total.
Permits to build residences in
Montgomery County, Maryland, adja
cent to Washington, in July and Au
gust reached a higher total than they
ever reached before in the history of
the county. Berry E. Clark, clerk of
the Board of Commissioners of the
county, reported yesterday. More
than 90 per cent of the increase, he
added, comes from sections near the
District.
Mr. Clark added that while Mont
gomery County's increase in taxable
valuation in the last two years had
averaged about $2,000,000 annually,
the rise had been well above that fig
ure for both of the last two fiscal
years, the increase being again in the
sections next to the District. For
1923, at the end of the fiscal year,
June 30, his figures show an increase
of approximately $3,000,000. For the
succeeding year there was an in
crease of two and a third million dol
lars, and then the spurt for the first
two months of the new fiscal year
1925
Building permits in 1923 totaled
SSO. and in 1924 they were 511. but
the start of 1925 gives reason to look
forward to a breaking of even the
1923 record.
“That section which touches the
District is advancing very rapidly.”
said Mr. Clark. ‘ The Increase in the
last few months has been substan
tially greater than it was for the
year preceding.”
This spurt in the last two years,
Mr. Clark credits in large measure
to the new development projects
which have drawn hundreds of Wash
ingtonians to such sections as Battery'
Paxk, the several Chevy Chase proj
ects, Edgemoor. Huntington Terrace
and Otterbourne. The older projects
likewise have flourished.
Mr. Clark adds that the unusually
sound financial condition of Mont
gomery County is an added asset as
an inducement to home-buyers. It
has the lowest county tax rate in
the State of Maryland and the lowest
percentage of bonded indebtedness,
despite a great showing in school
buildings, in mileage of improved
roads and in increased police pro
tection.
GUARDS REALTOR TITLE.
Michigan Association to Prevent
Use by Those Not Entitled.
To conserve the use of the word
“realtor" to those entitled to use it,
the Michigan Real Estate Association,
through its executive committee, has
appropriated a fund of SSOO to be
used in discouraging unauthorized
use of the word in Michigan. A
.similar appropriation has been made
by the Detroit Real Estate Board.
The attention of offenders will be
called to the proprietary right which
the National Association of Real
Estate Boards has in the word.
Where misuse persists after this
Warning court action will be taken.
License to use the term realtor is
given to constituent boards of the
•national association directly by the
national body. The State association
comes into the campaign for protec
tion of the word as a volunteer ally.
Any court action undertaken by it
will be in the name of member boards
of the national association within
the membership of the State associa
tion.
The action is undertaken as a serv
ice to the membership of the State
association and to the cause of real
estate in the State.
