Description-
  • Real Estate in American History "reveals the unprecedented real estate problems that had to be dealt with in the transfer of a continental wilderness to private ownership and cultivation. It shows how the evolution of banking and mortgage financing institutions affected the course of real estate and it similarly follows the influence of taxation on the incentives to invest in property." [Taken from Introduction, written by Miles L. Colean.]
Synopsis-
  • "This is a history of real estate ownership in the United States and of the business which serves it. This book attempts no more than to give some indication of the forces affecting real estate ownership and use over the seventeen decades 1787 to 1957, trace the development of a real estate business service to meet the public needs, and record the efforts that have been made as part of the responsibility of the business to better the physical environment of life, to guide community development, and to safeguard real estate investment." [Excerpt from Foreword, written by Pearl Janet Davies - Historian, National Association of Real Estate Boards.]
