Brick Residences Make Money!!
More than a few owners are today thankful to Sunderland Brothers for pursuad
ing them to build of BRICK. WHY? Because they have made money by so doing.
Our booklet "The Cost of & Brick House" shows how little extra it costs to build
of brick and the selling value is greatly increased.
Depreciation is unknown to brick construction. Depreciation will offset tL
expected increafe in the value of your lot if you do not build of brick.
The right brick costs no more than the wrong brick but it makes a heap of dif
ference in the attractiveness of the structure.
