Grand View Addition is the most beautiful spot
about La Grande- You can purchase a lot in Grand
View Addition and have three years' time in which to
make payment for same, and during that time you
have, neither interest nor taxes to pay.
Let this sink in deep.
Then come to our office or call us up on the phone
and request us to show you this property.
If you have never invested in real estate before
this is you opportunity to get the proper start.
If you have made investments in real estate, avail
yourself of this opportunity to make comparisons.
The terms are such that no sacrifice will have to
be made in order to meet them.
If this addition was located near a town with a
less bright future before it than La Grande, it would
still be an excellent investment, and with the future
La Grande has before it, the increase in the value of
these lots will be phenomenal. .
