The Hardware of the
New Sanford Hotel
Was Furnished By
HINDSIGHT AND FORESIGHT
In City Growth and Real Estate Value
Eleven years ago we bought for Mrs. Elizabeth Dufrene the lot on
which the New Sanford now stands, then occupied by a row of frame
houses. Price $12,500. Last year we sold this property for the hotel site
for $100,000 cash. That is hindsight. The development was faster than
any of us expected, but we were certain of being in the line of growth.
FORESIGHT is different from hindsight. We cannot be certain
of many elements that will enter into increasing values, and yet some
things are pretty certain. There is little doubt that Omaha will con
tinue to grow and some property offered now may do as well as this
has. Study carefully before buying.
