REAL ESTATE MEN
FOR NEWLY WEDS
Homes Are to Be Furnished
With Every Convenience of
Modern Invention for
A house complete in every detail,
furnished from top to bottom, with
every article of equipment, furniture.
Llinen, china and silver, a dream of a
place, ready for the bride and groom
to step right in and begin housekeep
ing in their home, is the ideal which
the modern realtor is trying to make
The tendency toward this acme of
of service efficiency is rapid.
"Ten years ago," said Linn Camp
bell, of the Byron Reed company,
realtors who specialized in the build
ing of homes for sale on the install
ment plan, sold to purchasers the
bare skeleton of a house.
"Walls of such properties were
bare, woodwork was of yellow pine
and the floors made of flat grained
wood of the same material. There
was no pretence toward architectural
attractiveness and the places were
very simple in appearance.
Today's Modern Bungalow.
"Today houses of the bungalow
type are planned to be of artistic ar
chitectural beauty and landscape ar
tists are called upon to give the en
vironment of trees and shrubbery that
are essential to harmonize with the
architectual details and flower boxes
with suitable decorative plants are
even placed in front of the sun room
"Now every floor is made of oak
and an oak finish is given to the
living and dining rooms, while the
bath room and bed chambers are
finished in white enamel and the walls
papered with the paper that harmon
ized with the social atmosphere, use,
and finish of each separate apartment.
Often papers are used which cost $1
"Instead of the old fashoined pan
try there is the modern built-in
kitchen cabinet with every conven
ience and accessory and the whole
sanitary to a degree.
"Plugs are placed in the walls for
electric connections with fans, elec
tric irons, electric vacuum cleaners and
there are dust chutes to the basement,
clothes chutes to the laundry, and
even the detail of closets for the fam
ily brooms and mops.
"The central idea of the realtor is
to build a house that will sell but he
also wants to furnish the house from
tooth picks to electric range so that
it will sell itself, be so attractive and
homelike that it will be irresistable in
its home owning appeal to the newly
weds as well as others who have trav
eled in matrimonial harness, but have
been homeless in the real sense of the
"A further step has been taken to
ward .the furnished home idea when
the realtor included in the accessories
of his houses the electric light bulbs,
fixtures, curtain rods and curtains, to
conform with the decorative schemes
of the interiors, and which have here
tofore been regarded as personal
"Only a short time ago a fine house
of this kind was sold to a couple be
cause of the detail of a mirror in a
bedroon closet door. It appealed to
It is only a step to a home complete
for the newlyweds and shows that
realtors have ideals as well as imagin
ations. Benefit Entertainment
For Boxer Who Was Hurt
A benefit boxing entertainment is
being planned for Eddie Moha, a Mil
waukee welterweight, who was seri
ously injured in a bout with Jock Ma
lone of St. Paul several weeks ago,
when the Milwaukee boxer was
knocked out aod suffered a blood clot
on the brain. Malone, among others,
is expected to participate in the bene
fit. Thirty Omaha Real Estate to
Attend National Convention
The hustling committees of the
Omaha Real Estate board reports
that at least 30 realtors, members of
the local association, have planned
to attend the meeting of the national
organization at St. Louis, June 17.
It is probable that the delegation will
travel to the Missouri metropolis in
a special car.
Kansas City Realtors Invite
Omahans to See Their Town
The Realtors of Kansas City have
extended to the delegation of Omaha
realtors who are going to St. Louis
to attend the national convention in
June an invitation to stop off and
be the guests of their organization.
The Omaha delegation will leave here

"DOLLAR DOWN" IS
UNUSUAL WAY OF

line, close to schools, churches, with
telephone and electric lights close at

lot line, for a "dollar down," is the
unusual offer made in the sale of
Clearview lots, which will open Sun
day. Clearview is located between Ben

Scarcity of Rental Property
In Omaha at Present Time
A realtor who makes a specialty of
rentals sold a house for a man the
On Friday he received a call from
the man, who was compelled to give
possession to the purchaser, for a
modern house to rent
The realtor, who normally had
from 30 to 400 such places listed, had
to tell his client that there was not
a place in the city available. This
shows the scarcity of rental property
in Omaha at the present time.
Fourteen Residences Are Sold
On "Own-Your-Home" Plan
Fourteen residences, costing from
$2,000 upwards, located in Elmwood
Gardens, have been sold to purchasers
impressed with the "own your own
home" idea by Payne & Slater.
That firm has contracted for five
more houses to be constructed in
the same addition and which will be
placed on sale.
Of the 250 lots contained in the
addition only 50 have been left un
sold. Keen Interest Displayed in
Suburban Acreage Property
Interest is keen in suburban acreage
property as was manifested when 250
persons visited Beverly Hills last
Sunday and looked over the 200 acres
of ideal rural building sites contained
in the addition.
Omaha Real Estate is the best In
