We loaned more than $220,000 on construction loans in Detroit during the months of
May and June, and built 84 homes. ..... e w

Frank P. Miller
One of the heaviest land holders in
this great section is Frank P. Mil
ler, the hustling real estate dealer In
the Free Press building. Among his
holdings are holding* In Amber
Park, Humber Park. Mulberry hill.
Mulberry hill annex. Palmer Homes
1 and 2. Glacier Park, Palmer Boul
evard Fstate*. I>>g Cabin Heights
and Hamilton Park. Subdivisions
recently acquired are nearly all sold.
Most of Mr. Miller’s property Is in
side the six mile line, and contingent
to Palmer boulemrd, Livemcrts ave
nue, Twelfth street, Puritan avenue
and Bnyder road.
"There Is a movement on foot for
the construction and operation of a
car line running northwesterly
through the heart of the district, **
said Mr. Miller to The Times. In
my section we have built 100
houses and 800 or 600 more have
been built by others within the past
two or three years. The demand for
homes In that section has been so
great that we are building them
even before Improvements can get to
us. This Is due to Its near-ln loca
tion to Industrial Institutions.
We Lave about 35 houses now tin
der construction on 11 ill. North,
Puritan, Rason. Moss, Ixtuise and
Geneva avenues, and Palmer blvd.,
and have taken out 22 additional
permits for houses already sold from
blueprints. We have also 200 acres
of unplatted land. All told, we have
subdivided about 480 acres of this
section. 90 per cent of which w«
have sold.
•’As a residence location, the prop
erty described Is made additionally
desirable by reason of its near lo
cation to Palmer Park and the golf
links which He directly northeast.
The Ford highway Is about one
third of a mile from most of these
holdings Great advantages will be
derived from the proposed car line
on Llvernols-ave. and Twelfth-st.

my Corporation Counsel Dingeman has prepared a petition to take the district in which Puritan

* • Buy now, because if these lots are taken into the city a $600.00 lot will be worth $1,000.00
to $1,200.00 easy. Get in on the ground floor and make a big profit. Prepare and have a home which will be in
Detroit. Pay for your lot. Then you can build a home.

The most desirable north district lies between Woodward Ave., Grand Blvd. and Grand River Ave., the
beautiful, and will soon be filled with high-class, comfortable and beautiful homes. Buy a lot, pay for it on the
easy monthly plan, get it paid for and then you can build that home of your own that you and your wife and
children have so long hoped for.
Rents are getting higher. Rents keep one poor. Be independent; own your own home. Puritan Heights
is on Puritan Ave. (formerly 5%-Mile Road), corner Wyoming Ave. Puritan Heights has everything in its
favor. It is just the right distance from the mammoth Woodward Ave. Ford Plant to be popular and make
big profit. A $600.00 lot will soon be worth $1,200.00 to $1,800.00. Puritan Heights is on the high-grade west
side. No dust, no smoke, no dirt, no noise. It is close to Detroit and Highland Park limits. When street car
extensions are made you will get a city fare (7 for a quarter). Do not buy where you will always have to pay
from 10 to 20 cents in addition to city fare.
Think of this. Sidewalks, drainage sewers, trees, cinderized streets, etc., etc., will be completed as soon
as the weather permits. It is a grand property.

my TH We ftre no * noy f ceß * n th® subdivision business. Ask any of our old customers what kind of treatment they have received
|\ I I I r from us and what profits they have made on lots we have sold them. If you do not want to buy for a home buy two or
three lots for investment. Most of the buyers in Puritan Heights will buy for a home for their own use. This makes
those who buy for investment sure of big profits. Come to office, see plat and make your reservations. Perfect title. Burton abstract Be wise.
Do not put it off. Act at once. Your friends made money in real estate. Why not you? It is easy.
