Pacesetter completely re-wrote the contract- -doubling the term of payments from five years to ten. The interest rate remained above 15- and- a half percent.
The house is worth 17-thousand-200 dollars, by Botetourt County's most recent assessment... a home that has no central heat, no indoor plumbing.

NEWS 7 obtained estimates from three local firms for windows and doors on the Anderson house. We asked for top-of-the-line materials.
They were all within a hundred dollars of one another.
The HIGHEST one was still one third the price the Anderson's paid ...before adding finance charges.
The total amount was well over 13-thousand dollars, including credit health and life insurance, title and recording fees to attach a lien on the house.
But Pacesetter doesn't try to be competitive on price.

Several days after we spoke with the local sales manager, Pacesetter's home office said it would temporarily reduce the Anderson's monthly payment by 52-dollars.
That extends the life of the loan. The Anderson still owe about 12-thousand dollars on the contract.
Mrs. Anderson says "it's just delaying the inevitable."
Pacesetter HAS agreed to cancel the credit life and health insurance they bought as part of the deal.
We'll have more on that on NEWS 7 at 11.
