Large gains in construction of
■ew homes with the aid of G.I.
nans are in prospect for 1948 in

resentative in this area, said to
During December, the VA's re
gional office in Portland received
■five times as many applications
for loan guarantees on dwellings
yet to be built as in any prior
month of the year, Schworer ex
Although FHA has resumed its
.Title VI program, the VA expects
r.he G.I. loan business of the state’s
lending firms to show a sustained
i ncrease over last year, he added.
During 1917, the. VA approved
O'750 G.I. loans for Oregon veter
ans, more than four out of every
five on old or new homes. These
approvals totaled $24,976,003, in
cluding federal guaranties amount
ing to 48 pci' cent.
Excessive prices and building
yost's caused a drop in loans from
'946. To date, G.I. loans in Oregon
have been approved for 10,750
veterans, for a grand total of $52,
Last year, home loans numbered
Y33 for $20,748,172: small busi
less loans, 496 for $1,657,565, and
-arm loans, 218 for $90S,I73. The
.average loan was for $5558 on a
;nomo, $4167 on a farm and $3342
'pm a business.
' "P respects are tremenduos,"
..Schworer commented. "Less than
me out of 13 ex-GIs in Oregon has
’applied as yet for this benefit, and
'the VA loan program has nine
; nore years to run.”
