You cafyborrow frOm the lending institution without any down payment. The.entire amount of your repair job is yours as soon as your loan -application is approved—a pleasantly quick process.

There are no mortgage papers to be signed, no title searches, no legal fees, endorsers or collateral. An' existing mortgage on your home does not disqualify you from obtaining an FHA Title 1 loan.

Bring the estimate on the work to the lending institution, and the financing will be arranged.

A $500 loan, as an example, can be paid at the rato of $15.97 a month over a period of thirty- six months . Furnishing the smaller, more compact home calls for ingenuity to make the most of all available space.
