The Bank of Italy has been, from its inception and is now, ready and anxious to make loans to people owning, or intending to build, their own homes -- to the smaller mortgage borrowers who need $1000 or less.
The Bank of Italy has built up, its present reputation, its present enormous resources, largely through catering to the small depositor -- the wage earner, the producer, the small business man, the man who owns a small home or a piece of improved property, the man who is the bone and sinew of Southern California's progress.
This bank has never catered to speculators.
To men of the home-owning type particularly, we hold out now the opportunity to effect a loan, the opportunity to borrow money on their small holdings.
And in this bank there is no need for the payment of brokers' fees or commissions, no need for working through a third party, no expenses in connection with the drawing of mortgage papers.
No cost of any kind.
