FRIDAY, APUIL 30, 1037 UIATllKVILLli (AUK.)' COUK1EH NEWS I'T LEI OF II EM IBILP PM Two to Two and One-Half Times Annual Income Should Be Maximum Love Story With Title The wisdom of the almost rigid InMslciice of Ihn Federal Housing Administration thill it is unwise for a man lo Invest more thar two to two and one-hull tlmcf Ills annual income in a home aiu (hut monthly payments should no: exceed one-fifth to one-third o: his earnings, is revealed in the "case histories" of many of Ihe applicants seeking lo refinance existing trusts with Insured single mortgages. The almost blind enthusiasm wilh which people have plunged into purchasing homes under the old .system of first anil second mortgages wilh payments which allowed no protection against unforeseen difficulties, is responsible for many of Ihe applicalions lor insured single mortgages now being made. This is not only because of the danger of foreclosure where Ihey have fallen behind in Ihelr payments, but also because Ihc payments are more than they can afford and enjoy a decent standard of living. A case in i>cint is that of Robert . E. Hartney, of Chicago. Back in 1932 Mr. Harlney made a good in- vcslmenl when he purchased five-room frame bungalow for $4,500. The terms of Ihc conlrac' ' called for a down payment S3CO, additional $200 within GO days, monthly payments ol $40 and S1CO in a lump sun every six months. Mr. Hartney met the conlrac terms for the first year. Thci came trouble—a reduction in hi salary, followed closely by illnes. in the family, with medicine, doc lor, and hospital bills. He was im able to meet his monthly pay incuts, and he be^ari lo let thi obligation slip. Meanwhile he been thinking over his situation. 1 Monthly payments, taxes, insur ance, and fuel expense tolalet more than SCO per month. H could get a nice apartment, slcarr liealed, with janitor service an no fuss or worry for $40 pe month. Having lost his inltia enthusiasm for buying a home. M Hartney wrote Ihc holder of th contract that he didn't see ho he could continue the paymen! The mortgagee replied that', sine he was leaving town, he won! take $3.000 for his $3,600 cquil ". : in"::th'e.° house if Mr. ' ; Hartne N could 'raise' the money right awa ' Trearteh'ed "by' this ncwii" M Hartney applied to the First Na lional Bank of Blue Island, 111., for a loan of $3,300, the amount needed to make the payment and recondition the building. Then the Federal Housing Administration, after appraising the property insured the mortgage. The new insured single mortgage runs for a period of 20 .years, with monthly payments, including taxes and insurance' of $32 pur month. "Being offered the mortgage for 53,000 was a break," said Mr Hartney. "but until I found I could refinance the contract with an insured single mortgage with mortcrat; payments. I didn't realize wlial a great thing the National Housing Act really is it certainly ts a blessing for owners of small homes who arc trying to make ends meet and pay for a place. "Our picture is completely changed from six months ago Title to the house Is now in my name. Our monthly payments are considerably lower than rent for an adequate apartment.
