Lops of their Homes through foreclosure Only a few years ago. Today Are clearly on their Way to debt free Home ownership or already have achieved that goal. Of these borrowers holc stat manager a. I. Williams reported today 316 have paid in $ or 6,4 05 to Cross off their debts Jin full. Some 2,857 others either Are entirely current ices than j three months in arrears or Are meeting All current Bills and in i addition making regular monthly payments to liquidate their Are Rea rages. A still 208 others Are making adjusted payments sufficient to keep their accounts Active and we expect i great majority to re a a militate themselves a said Wil a bams. A considering that the j average Borrower was two years delinquent in both principal and interest and Between two and i three years on taxes when he was refinanced the record proves j that what most of our borrowers needed was Only a fair chances i embodied in Long term Loans at a i Low interest rate to overcome the hardships the depression forced upon in All Montana borrowers have paid Hack $2,224,803, or approximately 29.7 per cent of their entire principal indebtedness. The other Side of the pictures the manner in which the corporation is liquidating the properties it has been forced to acquire and which came to it through voluntary deed or abandonment Ulso was Given by Williams. The holi now owns 61 Homes in Montana and in addition Lins hold 1.x7, of which 112 were sold last year.

A but into that capitalized value was written not Only the unpaid balance of the mortgage loan including unpaid advances and interest. But also delinquent taxes which May amount to hundreds of dollars foreclosure costs and the costs of repair and reconditioning a a said Williams. A in other words the Cost of leniency of giving the Borrower a Chance o pull through is represented in the Book loss the figures show. Sales costs appear Iii the operating expenses of the col portion paid out of its own revenues. They represent for tile most part commissions to private brokers who handle our properties at set minimum the Homes the Lloyc still owns capitalized at $172,711, according to Williams have a present estimated Market value of $123,143. A but merely to say the corporation is a losing Money in the amount of loss it takes on its sales of Homes is like saying a business is losing Money because one department shows a loss a said Williams. A the holc could hardly he expected to sell foreclosed hornets Many of them run Down and needing extensive repairs All burdened with unpaid taxes at a profit. Every mortgage institution loses Money on the Sale of foreclosed Home and makes up for it on its Good Loans. A each month the corporation sets aside reserves and its losses together with operating expenses Are being met through the spread Between the interest i to receives on its Loans and the lower interest it must Lay on its in i holc granted 3,679 Loans in Montana prior to the dose of ifs lending period in june 1936, amounting to $7,284,979.
