"In the 16-story Enos Tower Cooperative building; which will rear Its massive racads on tne ex elusive lake front boulevard, are to bs fonnd many new features en tlrely novel to those familiar with the many cooperative bulldlnrs on the Pacific coast, it Is stated, statement reads: "To assure comfort, oonvenience and beauty almost every new and successful mechanical feature has been added such as individual refrigeration, combination concealed wall safes, burglar alarms, electric dish washers, electric driers, etc, Besides these the tenants will enjoy a spacious lounge, library, lobby and vault room, and what is most Interesting, there will be a fasci natlng dining room with Its dainty menu, for the owners wno come home too tired to use their ewn handy kitchen, or when the cook z2 I gives sudden notice. "A beautiful ball room Is pro jected as well as a large solarium on the roof. The building Is of class "A" construction and Its sturdy steel and concrete is a guarantee of safety from any fire or earthquake danger and gives the necessary soundproofing and pri vacy demanded." Mel and Hill Incorporated, the exclusive agents for Enos. Tower, state that: "The building will cost about $1,600,000. We have spared no expense to make each apartment an Ideal home as well as "a first rate Investment.- We nave se. cured In' all departments of the project the best available advice, thus assuring Enos Tower owners of a solid legal, 1 architectural co operative,; engineering and financial foundation. The apartment homes are reasonably -priced and should augment steadily In, value because there has been no, heavy promotion expense to cover and land values on the lake front are steadily increasing as the few remaining building sites are de veloped." Miss G.'A. Shaffer of San Fran cisco, nationally known cooperative expert and consultant, who is re sponsible for so many of the fine cooperative homes In San Francisco, says: "The first consideration in purchasing any home, or anything else for that matter, is sale- ability, that is, can one get his or her money back if they should ever want to sell what ,they have bought. In 'a home this means first of all, location, and location means surroundings, outlook, ac cessibility, and the amount of prop erty available of this . particular type." In Enos Tower the tenant own ers have a location - absolutely unique the boundaries of , their district are rigid,' it cannot grow in sise, but can only increase in value. I predict a development along Lake Merritt similar 60 that on Chicago's lake front, where values have soared to dizzy heights The apartment homes have a marvelous view of lake and hills, etc., and yet are within a few minutes walk of jthe down town section-and where else can one have a home like this with canoeing and water sports at their door?

Procpectlve home owners are of fered some sound advice In a pam phlet prepared for Herbert Hoover, secretary of commerce, by John M, uries ana James 8. Taylor of the Division of Building and Housing or me Department ot commerce, Discussing- "How Much Can On Afford to Pay for a Home?" they say: "Every family must face this question. Most people know what tney would like in the way of home, and know that they could make payments at least equal to the rent , they are now paying. When they look over houses or plans of houses, they find some that cost too much and others that are too small or too shabby to consider. The real problem lies In getting a satisfactory home, one that will not absorb too much of the family's Income nor yet be be low its general living standards. Be fore buyuig. the head of the fam ily may Wisely ask himself: 1. What Is the family a annual income, and What will It probably oe next year and the year after 7 "I. If business slackens, la he likely to: lose his position or have his earnings reduced r S. will anyone else In the fam ily be able to earn an Income? 4. what does the family now pay for rent each year? s. How much of the Income la being saved? 6. How much could the family afford to pay out each year In pay ing ror a bouse, and for the ex penses that go with It? It. la a mistake to buy beyond one s ability to pay, for that usually results In the loss of the home or In - most discouraging struggle. The purchase should be safe; thus If a family cannot pay $7600 for a house, a $5000 house may be within Its means. 'The amount that can be paid for a house depends partly on what Interest rates are charged for money borrowed to make the purchase and the rate at which the principal Is to be paid off. These fixed payments must be met regu larly, and they must be met from the family income. It Is. therefore. always best to leave some' margin of safety to previde fo rillness or other emergency.
