'SStts-t Activity iu the Demand for Suburban Laud to Subdivide into Auction Sales—Fictitious Considerations —Bank Rents—Landlords’ grievances. Building Notes Summary of Tranfers for the Week, The volume of business in the purchase and sale of real estate keeps up, notwithstanding the unfavorable aspect that financial and commercial affairs have worn for several weeks past. There is-an active demand for a medium class of two* story and basement brick dwellings mall.thfc good residence quarters of the city, and a great many f are being sold. The prices obtained are in general just about the Ingest figures asked for the same properties fourteen months ago. In view of the greater coat of building now than then, it wonld seem that, prices should be con* siderably higher, but, about August and Septem ber of 1871, there was on immense number of new unoccupied dwellings- in the city, which had been built for sale. -At the time of the fir© .many bf those who had built on spec ulation were getting " hard up,” and when forc ed to sell were obliged to take a good deal les» than the consideration asked at - first, and prices were, therefore,‘to a great extent, nominal. But the destruction of houses in the fire, and the in •creased population since, have, more-than ah-* sorbed all'the surplus of dwellings of this class, and it seems probable the demand will continue. The speculative feature *of .the real estate business is in suburban lands.' Mote than twic» as much land has besn bought for* eubdivisioij and sale in building lots this fall than ever before, and tho sale of lota at auction is likely to become a much larger business than it has been. We hear of the sale of 10. acros in. Section 17* .fir© miles west of State street, between Madia oa andHarriaon, at $1,250 per aero.* This is donbld the price it would hare sold for at this time last' year, and is S3 per cent more than it. would hay® brought four months ago. 3?Orty acres at the junction of Milwaukee ave nue and the Boulevard were sold at $2,500 pair here during the past week. A tract of 470 acres, lying on both aides of ih® Chicago, Columbus & Indiana Central Eailroad, j just.ten miles south of the city limits, and two miles southeast of the railway station at Wash ington Heights, was sold this week to Eastern? parties for $103,000, or at' the rate of $225 per •acre. Terms, $36,000 by Nov. 1, balance in one and two years with 8 |?or cent interest. A tract of seventy-live acres in tho east half of the southeast quarter of Section 5 in the Town of Cicero, being juafc north of Austin on the Galena road, was contracted for about thirty d&ys ago, at sßuo per acre. The purchaser, how ever. sold bis contract a few days since for & bonus of $5,000.- nemrotjs considerations. A good-many real estate speculators systemat ically insert fictitious considerations' in the transfers of any property they selt The objects for this are various; one wants to it ap pear that property in porno particular neighbor hood is advancing rapidly la value; another -wante to. disguise, the fact that ha is hard up aa£ obliged/ to sell fOT'*'leßsT T 'lhiui. Ihe has naked; * another don’t it’ to appear that he is selling for less than some neighbor, Who has put in- a fictitioua' consideration in a sale of adjacent property. Wo regret ; tosay that this practice is increasing* men who.wonld scorn to he in conversation do it in the convey ance of property. Humbug. of this kind’ Is bound to he exposed sooner or latex; its effect also is exceedingly' bod. An astute stranger who comes hex© and finds oat a few such in stances, accepts it os ihe general rule, and goes away to inform his acquaintances to that effect. Chicago real estate will advance fast enough ia give any purchaser, who has borkght judiciously, a profit, and there is no use in lying to make it appear that prices are advancing -at such a rata as most necessarily cause a reaction soon. THE OALTCCET CANAI» AND* DOCK CO. ' recently negotiated a loan of $300,000, with Extern capitalists, giving a mortgage on" 3,000 of the 6,000 acres of land they own in. and around South. Chicago. The money Is probably to pay for their’ share of the extensive harbor improvements and dock facilities that have .been ’ made there during the past year, under the su pervision of. and mainly at tlib expense. of the united Slates. Another loan of SIOO,OOO ia also being negotiated by the company for the purpose of erecting Bessemer steel works on their property in South Chicago, which is' admir ably adapted to that purpose, having ample dockage for vessels bringing ores from Bake Superior, and railroads running direct to the mines of the best coal for that use. -> ' RAILROAD TRACKS IN XUS SUDUBB3. Property-owners report that the 0. C. &I, C. Eailroad Company aro stealing the right-of-way for anew,track now being constructed on the line of an apcchryphal thoroughfare, called ; “ Valentine street,” 75 or 80 feet east of thaold Great Eastern track, and extending from Twelfth to Kgnzio street. It is said that tha property of some non-residents is being cut in two, and partly confiscated without their knowl edge. . THE PIXXSBCSGH AND FOET WAYNE COiLPASX are constructing a double track from Engle wood to South Chicago, but have been enjoined by the Michigan Southern, who claim that the ground in the right-of-way occupied by tho two roads, belongs to them.
