Bruce Barton said:

“There was a vacant lot opposite my home which could have been bought for five thousand dollars. A month ago a man bought it for twenty-eight thousand, and two weeks later sold it for sixty thousand. I take off my hat to him! He saw it was a gold mine! It didn’t look to me like anything more than a vacant lot.”

Andrew Carnegie said:

“Ninety percent of all millionaires become so through owning real estate. More money has ben made in real estate than in all industrial investments. The wise young man or wage earner of today invests his money in real estate.”

Hetty Green said:

“Real Estate is an imperisahble asset, ever increasing in value. It is the most solid security that human ingenuity has devised. It is the collateral to be preferred above all others, and the safest means of investing money.”

“Land is part of God’s estate in the glove; and when a parcel of ground is deeded to you, and you walk over it, and call it your own, it seems as if you had come into partnership with the original proprietor of the earth.”

Senator W.E. Brock said:

“In buying real estate, you have a freedom of possession which other investments do not give. No one can freeze you out. No one can run you off. It is yours. I made a real estate deal 16 years ago against a banker’s advice, and sold the property in five years for over $100,000 profit, plus 6 percent net income. If I had put this profit back into stocks, I would have lost practically all of it.”
