Main 2424 ri u. cuss HEARS LECTURE ON INVESTMENT Thomas Bradley Discusses In come Possibilities in City and Country Property. "Real Estate Investment*" were discussed before the real estate class of the Y. M. C. A. thia week by Thomas Bradley, vice president Washington l/wn and Trust Com pany. In classifying the different forms of real estate Investments, Mr. Bradley stated that business prop erties and apartment houses were considered the highest forms of in vestments. Usually business prop erties produce a net' rental In tha? the tenant is responsible for repair* and carrying charges. Apartment houses, which have in recent years become so popular, and in fact al most an absolute necessity, devel oped a new field for Investors. Farms, generally speaking, are not considered so good an investment unless located near a city. This gives a farm a speculative value because of the possibility for subdivision purposes. Acreage or other non-income pro ducing properties appeal to the In vestor of large means who c?n -tfford to wait many years for t'ie realisw tlon of profit which comes with the natural Increase in value. Acreage however, when taken over by one who develops It Jnto subdivisions with streets, alleys, and improv-? IP ? menta. If sold In a reasonable tltne, produce* a fair profit. There are three dlatlnct class*-* that deal In real estate: the Investor of large mean* who la willing to take hla profit In later yeara; the speculator who, aa a rule, buys for a quick return; and the developer who producea aubdlvlalona out of an acreage tracts. In past yeara a mall dwelllnga have proven fairly aatlafactory as lnveat menta, provided proper attention wan given the queatlon of up-keep repairs. Depreciation In thia claim of property la very extensive where the proper attention to minor re paira la not given when the need first arises. The unusual Increase In cost at repairs, together with certalr phases of restrictive rental legisla tion has tended to destroy somewhnt the popularity of this form of invest ment. As a city develops, changing con ditions In different aectiona have a very material effect on the value and desirability of real estate. Where a residential section is gradually ab sorbed by buainess encroachment the tlmo cornea when the value of ihe land Increases to such a point that the physical value of the Im provements ia absorbed, and it then becomes profitable to destroy an otherwise perfectly sound building for the purpose of constructing a building more In keeping with the changed conditions. Then, again, sections that at one time were considered very high cla*s residential aectiona undergo a change In character of occupancy without the encroachment of business with the result that some rather expen sive residences are found in sections where the value Is far below thf actual phywlcal value of the building and reproduction cost. The question of "Sale and Ixvin Settlements" will be explained to the class next Tuesday evening by Mr. Alfred H. Lawson. vice president District and Washington Title In surance Company. 3411 Woodley Road Brick Center Entrance Home Containing i 11 Rooms, 3 Master Baths, 2-Car Garage Inspection by Permit Only W.
