BOUIC & CO Phone M. 1615 Southern Building .a HIGH VIEW Is Nearer the City's Business Center Than Fashionable Dupont Circle DIDN'T realize it was so near, did you? Well maybe there are other equally important facts about High View and High View Homes that you do not fully realize as yet. There's the fact that High View Homes are situated on an elevation 171 feet above Penn sylvania Avenue. The fact that the immediate neighborhood is built up with homes that range in price from $5,000 upward. The fact that you can buy one of these homes with less money than the rent you are now paying. The fact that you take immediate possession and ownership of the house upon the payment of but $150 cash. We could go on indefinitely stating fact after fact with which you are not as familiar as you should be. How do we know? Why you would already be the owner of a High View Home if you knew as much about them and the easy manner in which they are purt chasable as you should know. YOU SHOULD, THEREFORE, inspect them, and this inspection should be made now. Here's why: From the day first announced for sale right up to the present time, High View Homes have sold faster than they could be built. In fact, whole rows have been sold before the first spadeful of earth was turned for the cellars. Right now we have a few of these homes ready for immediate occupancy. Experience tells us that this is but a mo mentary happening. With that fact in mind, you had better make your inspection NOW, while you have the opportunity to come into immediate possession of one. TO INSPECT Take any G street car marked "Brookland" or "North Capitol and W streets," get off at Rhode Island avenue, and walk one square east Price, $3,300 Cash, $200 Monthly: $26.92 (Including AH Interest) B2?5sii p3$&gmim HHI OB wJasflHR 9t SabSkkw HmWHI SriflHKI SIlwlMMHBiiSiH iBnB'"'IBHil SlflH IKRMimf. yOtLojj-y. &$& )MMinnMHMM40IRflQHBHMl I aftwsgxs&KWttttsti rmi rum mmjI The owners have under course of construction more of these homes. It will be several months before they are completed. If you haven't the necessary $200 first payment to put Into ono of the homes now ready for Immediate occupancy, you can havo us reserve one of the next lot for you by arranging to make us small monthly payments. In this way, by the time the homes are ready for occupancy, you will have saved enough to make the first payment. After that all you need pay Is W.92 per month, which applies directly on the homo, Including all Interest. CUonnnn & I iirhc 713 1 4th Street N.W.
