Owners Show Faith in Values by Leasing City Property
SALES AND LEASES
SHOW BIG TOTAtS
Improvement in Recent Months
Indicates Better Record
Than That of 1909
The sales of realty are making large
totals and bid fair to give the first
half of 1910 a great improvement in its
showing over the aggregate for the
first six months of 190». While the
number of large sales that go on rec
ord immediately after being consum
mated is quite small, they have a way
of appearing legitimately at an oppor
tune time when a record is needed for
a quarter or half year, and the total is
made to shine.
For the time leases are more in evi
dence than sales, and tXis phenomenon
is not only interesting in itself but it
indicates confidence as strong as gran
ite on the part of holders of certain
classes' of properties that they have a
good thing upon which they do not
easily loose their grip.
There is no reason to hold back the
publication of leases. They are gen
erally preliminary to the erection of
good buildings in the immediate future,
an.1 they indicate only what the lessee
and the lessor believe the earning ca
pacity of the ground &pd specified im
provements to be- for a term of years,
starting at a comparatively small fig
ure and progressing periodically, so
that the average is made respectable
while the total rental runs up into
six or seven figures.
LARGE ItEXTALS IV LEASES
A lease for a business property in
either the wholesale or the retail sec
tion that aggregates $1,000,000 or more
Is not eor.siiered uncommon. It leaves
the property at the end of the time lim
it in the hands of the original owners
or of their heirs and the leases often
pay a grogs sum that would be con
sidered a large price for the land and
improvements at the present time.
There are certain parts of San Fran
cisco in which the sales that have taken
place in the last few years are rela
tively small. The explanation given for
this by astute realty brokers is that the
persons who had the land before the
fire never lost the idea that it would
He much more valuable, and they seem
to be adhering to this idea.
LOWER MARKET STREET PROGRESS
Probably there is no part of San
Francisco that has seen more hard
work ou the part of realty brokers in
the last . two years than the district
hounded by East, Second, the south line
of Market street and the territory
reaching southward over to the
wharves and docks and the southern
line of the state's belt railway. For
rrany months after the fire this great
and valuable section of San Francisco
v.as built up with less speed than the
retail parts of the city. It did not
even keep pace with the wholesale
and retail area beginning with the cen
tra! line of Market street and extending
over toward North beach, and from
Montgomery street toward the eastern
water front of the city. Recent build
ing moves seem to indicate a general
desire to improve with good class
structures all the lower section of Mar
ket street and the streets abutting
thereon. Market street below Second
will ha\> a very different and much im
proved appearance before the falL
ACTIVITY IV OUTSIDE LAVDS
All through what are known techni
cally as the outside lands, which in
clude Richmond and Sunset districts,
the stir on the part of buyers and sell
ers continues. The number of active
real estate men on the ground and
the magnitude of improvements in
progress on both sides of Golden Gate
park tend to stimulate interest and
to show ti# good things for sale.
Along Clement street, in the Rich
mond district, there is activity in store
building. Three or four important
corners inside of Twelfth avenue are
the sites of new store construction.
The beginning by the German savings
hank of the banking structure. that it
will erect on the southwest corner of
Seventh avenu* and Clement street,
and the possible erection of a new the
ater at the northwest corner of Cle
ment street and Fifth avenue are sub
jects that Interest the Richmond dis
trict people.
SALES AVD BUILDIVG RECORDS
Since 1506 the real estate sales of
San Francisco have averaged more
than $32,000,000 a year, and have made
up a total of $130,000,000 in- round
figure*. This is a good enough show
ing to warrant optimism in San Fran
cisco regarding the future advance in
prices of all sorts of realty.
While the city has been the scene,
in four years, of realty sales aggre
gating the large amount mentioned, the
building operations in the same four
years have represented the great outlay
of $173,000,000 in round figures.
FSan Francisco has practically built
as many structures in the four years
succeeding the great fire as were
burned in April, 1906. The buildings
in the burned area are worth more than
those that stood formerly within the
same boundaries. When the entire dis
trict has been rebuilt with the newer
class structures, the values invested
will represent many millions more than
the properties that were destroyed.
An attentive reader of the real es
tate news will eee that the cost of ;
construction presented In contracts
awarded and in permits for building
issued by the board of works is suf
ficient to insure a high average.
TEMPORARY BCTLDIVG PROBLEM
, To what extent the permission given
by the supervisors for temporary
structures to remain another year will
retard the Improvement of neighbor
hoods where they are found in num
bers is purely problematical. The
order to demolish them that was
issued by the previous board of su
pervisors led to a period of activity In
construction In certain quarters.
Poss-ibly the entire city has such
a strong forward Impulse that many
property owners will see the advan
tage of putting up improvements that
will draw a better income, and will not
wait for the end of the year to begin
to demolish and remove.
The week closes, with property own
ers confident and brokers in knowledge
of facts of importance that may result
in some marked developments before
the first half of th« year 1910 has been
completed.

CITY REAL ESTATE
SALES INCREASE
Report for the Month of March
t Shows Transfers Greatest
in Two Years
Thomas Magee & Sons, in their real
estate circular report, that during the
month: of March 783 sales of real estate
in San Francisco were recorded for a
total .Of J3.349.884. This is an Increase
of $226,087 over the figures for the
month of February, . when the total
sales recorded amounted to $3,123,797,
an increase of- $787,178 over the fig
ures of sales recorded during the month
of January, when tha total sales were
$2,562,706. The tdtals for the month of
March are the highest for any month
since April, 1908, with the exception
of last December, when the total sales
recorded, amounted to $6,170,745,. in
which total were included many sales
which had been pending for a long time
and which were consummated prior to
the close of the year. It is also worthy
of comment that the number of sales
recorded during March — '783 — is the
highest number in any one month since
April, '1907, and i» an indication that
investors in real estate are ; becoming
more plentiful. The activity was gen
erally divided among the different sec
tions of the city, and consisted mostly
of small-rales, the largest sale for the
month involving only an Investment of
less than $175,000. The 50 vara section
led with total sales of $970,110, with
the Western addition second with total
sales of $876,550. The greatest activity
in number of sales was in the outside
lands and homesteads, in which 291
deeds were recorded during the month,
and in the Mission, with 179 transac
tions.

GROCERS COMBINE
TO AID CUSTOMERS
Unique Association Is Formed
to Fight Increased Cost
of Living
A number of local grocers have
bonded together under the name of the
"Keen Cut Grocers" to protect them
selves and their customers against the
great increase lnsthe cost of food. The
association Is unique amrfng business
organizations. There is not another of
the kind in the United States. While
the various food trusts have united to
increase prices, grocers of San Fran
cisco have Joined to reduce prices to a
fair level. *
The stores included in the organiza
tion are not new establishments, but
were chosen because of their high
standing and their geographical loca
tion in the city, each store, being: in
the center of a district
The stores will not lose their in
dh'iduality through their "connection
with the association, but will enjoy
the many benefits that it offers. The
chief advantage will come from co
operative purchasing. By buying to
gether, the grocers will command -the
lowest prices, and this advantage will
be shared by their customers.
It Is the aim of the Keen Cut Grocers
through their organized strength to
bring about gradually a general lower
ing of prices. The plans 6f the or
ganization have been carefully made
and every detail looking to the suc
cess of the movement has been com
pleted.
