That pleasant prospect comes from the people who should know, the officials of the nation's savings and loan associations, who make the majority of home mortgage loans. "Savings are coming in at a great rate and we're starting to pile up money," said a representative of the U.S. League of Savings Associations, which is holding its annual meeting here. "When you've got a lot of merchandise on the shelf and you want to move it you lower prices," he explained, noting that savings held by the associations rose about $50 billion in the past year to a total of $340 billion. Homebuyers aren't used to good news of this sort, but in a way they can thank themselves. It takes savings to make mortgages, and a good many of those who borrow for mortgages are savers also. Those savings have soared in the past two decades or so, helping build total assets of the associations to more than $380 billion, compared with a mere $16.9 billion in 1950. Savers at the associations earn 5.-25 per cent interest on ordinary passbook accounts, and 7.75 per cent on six-year certificates of deposit. Hut borrowing charges have averaged about 8.75 per cent. Because of this spread, which the league calls "an unprecedented development during recent years," the associations have managed to significantly improve their sometimes unsteady earnings. It is for this reason that economists of the league now feel that a decline of one-half per cent on mortgage charges is likely in 1977, with an upturn in home sales following as a direct consequence. League economists now project 1.8 million new housing starts in 1977, compared with an expected total of 1.5 million this year. They anticipate an unusually large rise in the multi-family market. To the surprise of some people, the savings and loan people had a very good year in 1976 in spite of the relatively weak new-home market because of continued strength in ex-isting-home sales. This phenomenon has gone almost unnoticed in popular portraits of the housing market, but it has become a huge factor. Sales of existing homes are reported as strong throughout the country. Price, quality of construction, size and many other factors are offered as explanations of the strength in this used-home market, in which sales are expected to reach 2.7 million units this year. 3 BEDROOMS, 2 BATHS, SINGLE FAMILY HOMES ON YOUR OWN 7,500 SQ.
