During the upcoming season the WPAs grand performing space will be enlivened by dancers, poets and theater groups every weekend. Judging by its stunning experimental exhibition of sculptures "Stacking/ Rigging/Binding," curated by the Hirshhorns gifted Howard Fox this summer, the quality as well as the risks involved should be anything but rou- tine. Foxs selection of ten contempo- rary artists who set out to explore the limits of their humble materials (mostly wood) by straining them to the break- ing point, suggested intriguing esthetic perspectives.

Creative Financing Many buyers arrange their ownfinancing. Bu iness associates at av-ings and loan institutions, commercialbanks and mortgage loan companieare often the first source. In urancecompanies, independent investor, abusiness firm or the seller may bankrollthe purchase. In todays market, down payment re-quirements usually range from about25070 to 33 % or more, depending on thesize of the mortgage principal and thebuyers qualifications, says LarrySilverman. Your tax man will advise youwhether to seek a high or low loan-to-value mortgage. You may want a de-ferred-interest loan or one with a de-ferred principal, depending on moneymarket conditions or your personal in-come picture. Fixed-rate or variable-rate or renewable-rate loans may be toyour advantage depending on how longyou plan to stay in your next home. Steve Willmann of Crowell andBaker reminds us again about taxshelter: "Whatever you put into yourhome and lot goes on the mortgage." Rollover loans, usually with five-year options for renewing at a higherinterest rate or extending the maturity(up to 40 years), may fit your inve t-ment plan better. Short term mortgages(five to ten years) with a balloon pay-ment at maturity may be attractive,too. An equity-participation loanmight even be constructed, dependingon the appreciation factor of your newhome investment (up to 20% annuallyor more) and the inclination of thelender. Combination of the above can tailorthe financing to your personal needs.Minimum risk to the lender is the key.Put your assets, ingenuity, contacts andnegotiating prowess to work for you.
