THE McCAIN REALTY COMPANY
432 Ludlow StreetArcade, Dayton
If those who make it possible for the working man without ready cash to secure a home of his own are valuable members of a community, then the McCain Realty Company is one of the most important institutions in Dayton. For it has been the means of scores of families in this city now having comfortable homes who, but for it, might neither have the homes nor the money to buy them with.
It has a very remarkable plan of selling home sites that enables the man of small earning capacity to secure a fine home site in a splendid locality and to eventually build a house upon it. The special feature of this plan, however, outside of the smallest of the weekly payments required for the high class of property dealt in, is the completeness of the protection it affords to the buyer.
F It not only insures his life and in the event of his death deeds the home site he has been purchasing, without further payment, to his family, but it also insures him against sickness or loss of work, by not requiring payments while these conditions continue. It has other valuable features as well as is the result of the company’s twenty years of experience.
The company has long since passed the stage of being merely a business enterprise. It is one of Dayton’s permanent and thoroughly responsible institutions with a clientele of over a thousand persons in this city alone to whom it has sold home sites and rendered valuable services.
To do business with the McCain Realty Company is like doing business with a bank. You get a definite service that you can depend on.
“The McCain Plan” as it has come to be called, is so favorably known that the company enjoys the closest of relations with the best financial institutions of the city, which is one of the reasons it can give the favorable terms and high protection to the buyers that it does, and which those of less high standing and permanence would be unable to give.
Though it has developed and sold thirty-one subdivisions in seventeen different cities and still has valuable interests in many of these cities, the company has long since made Dayton its permanent headquarters and home office.
Its wide experience and its study of the growth and development of cities has given it the ability to select those localities in a city best suited to the needs of the home owner, and that also lie in the path of the city’s surest growth.
And last, but not least in our estimation, is the uniformly high grade of development this company gives to all its subdivisions, the three so far handled in Dayton setting a high standard in this respect.
