DAIGER ASSISTANT TO THE ADMINISTRATOR t>Qp%BKlU&T ZZ , Dear Marriner: I wish that you would read the enclosed circular as soon as you have a convenient opportunity, and either let me come over to talk with you about it or else call me on the telephone. I am working on a plan of operation to be developed through the lumber people and otners, and I should like to get some suggestions from you in regard to it. Yours sincerely, J. M. Daiger Assistant to the Administrator Hon. Marriner S. Eccles, Chairman Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System Washington, D. C. Enclosure TITLE I HOME OWNERSHIP LOANS A new plan under Title I (Class 3) of the National Housing Act makes it possible to build small homes with loans up to $2500. . .payable in regular installments over a period up to 15 years. , .with an initial down payment of 5 percent (cash or land). SIMPLIFIED REQUIREMENTS The standard FHA requirements of design, construction and land use have been greatly simplified for these new loans. This permits the financing of more modest homes for families of moderate income, in smaller towns and rural areas, and in communities where zoning restrictions and building codes are not too rigid. LOW MONTHLY PAYMENTS The longer term of the loan brings the monthly payments to a low figure — as little as $17 a month (not including taxes and hazard insurance) for a $2,000 home. MODERATE FINANCING COST The financing charge and fees are limited by FHA regulations and are reasonable for loans of this size and type. The one loan may serve both for construction and permanent financing. To save time and expense, the process of obtaining and handling these new Title I loans has been made as simple as possible. H O W A TYPICAL CLASS 3 TITLE I LOAN W O R K S OUT Appraised value of land and building $ 2500 Minimum down payment $ 125 Amount to finance $ 2375 Monthly payments, including principal and finance charge (taxes and hazard insurance extra) N O T E : Class 3 Title I loans should not be confused with mortgages insured under Title II of the National Housing Act. The new Title I loans are designed to meet the requirements of special cases where more simple construction and neighborhood standards are permitted. For a home costing more than $2500, the advantages of a Title II insured mortgage should be investigated. $19.86 Loan completely paid off in 15 years Discount: $3.50 per $100 per year. This does not include certain minimum initial fees for title examination, etc. Class 3 Title I loans may not be used for purchasing homes or refinancing existing mortgages. These loans must be used solely for erecting new residential structures. WHERE TO APPLY.. Banks, savings, building and loan associations, finance companies and other lending institutions throughout the United States are qualified to make these Title I loans for home building. Material dealers and contractors will supply information and advice and will help you apply for a loan.
