That represented about 8J per cent of the total met of the home. The typical purotuuer planned to pay off his note in about »t years at a motnhly rate of $81.70. These and other characteristics of last year's FHA home buyer were revealed by FHA Commissioner Norman P. Miton. He drew this picture of the 1956 FHA mortgage home buyer: His average Income was Just over $8,000 a year. His new home was bigger in floor space than tht average ft* tfie previous year." He was more liKely to have a garage. i The number of rooms In his new house remained about the same M in 1955 — i| toons, three of which were bedrooms. Mortgages were taken out by- persons ranging in salary from $2,800 to $13,000 or more a year, "we serve people of all incomes," Mason said. Mason's average buyer earned 10 per cent more in 1958 than the previous year. Of his total earnings, 19.8 per cent went for housing expenses. This represented a slight decline over 1058 in the budget alloted for living quarters. This monthly expense was figured by the FHA at almost $105. It included utilities and mainten* ance and the like at well as mortgage payments. The topical FHA valuation placed on the naw house was more than $18,006 — reflecting the trend toward more expensive homes being built by contractors. Adding to the cost of the total was a 10 per cent climb in land values. FHA said the price of the average home site In 1950 was about $1,900. This repreiented 14 per cent of the total appraisal for mortgage purposes. tewlt Oeto, J». 0. D. Bafal» 0*.
