Rents Are Cheap In Florida Says Mrs. Albright Lake Helen, Florida, Oct 31,1939. Algona Opper Des Moines. "Since my last letter to you, Oct 10, several people have written me in regard apartments here, social advantages, etc. So I have been looking at houses and apartments and find that houses here for rent are a very poor investment Splendid places, costing four and five thousand dollars, elaborately furnished, rent as low as $30 per month, and good four-room apartments, well furnished, good location, as low as $10 per month. When you consider the tourist season is only about six months and such property must have good care the year around. These conditions came about by over-building and the owners are about ready to give their houses for rent away, to be rid of the burden. Cost of food here is about the same as in Iowa. Eggs are an exception, they are 40c per dozen. If anyone wanting a home or apartments will write me, I will answer ttt«le questions Mad will give tb*m Information that will cut down expenses and increase their comforts in getting located Mrs. K.
