The successful improvement of real esta'e hits become such a many sided business that It Is practically impossible for one agency to visual -Ir.e accurately a proposition from Inception to fruition.

"Time was when the owner of a building plot could figure without outside, aid and do It prrtty well, too." said Mr. Bacon, "but that time is forever gotie. So many factors are Involved nowadays that any big improvement takes a specialist In every branch, and another specialist to co-ordinate their findings. "This state of affairs Is rapidly-creating a new profession in the field of real estate development. This profession will attract men who have high construetive critical ability, backed by wide experience In all tho bram lies that have made Improvements In real estate such a highly specialized proceeding. Thy will do what the owner himself used to be able to do: pee clear through the proposition from every side. They will s"e a proposal through the owner's eyes and will supply In addition a fund of knowledge and diversified experience which, in tho very nature of things, It is impossible to otherwise obtain."

' "It is generally understood that there? are few if any safer forms of loans than those on homes. There is no problem of rental, for the house is automatically rented, for the period of possession by the owner. The buyer of a home, after making an Initial investment of at least one-fourth its appraised value, and after having further amortized his loan at reguiar intervals, would be the most reluctant of all borrowers to default In his obligations. The possession of that home means mor to him than a speculation; more even, than an lnvesiment. He Is the best financial and moral risk in the world." I i RKAI. KHTATE AT AUCTION. HKAI.
