Mortgage Funding Solutions, an operating series of Countrywide Mortgage Ventures, will offer qualified home buyers zero-down-payment loans and a variety of fixed- and adjustable-rate options with optimum flexibility on rate and terms.

The joint venture is the latest in a string of joint ventures Countrywide has announced this year, including ones in northwest Montana, Hawaii and New York.

Century 21 Advantage Gold is Philadelphia's largest Century 21 firm. In 2002, the National Association of Realtors named it the fastest growing real estate company in the country.
