Mobile home loans are available and a little more tricky. Here is a number for you (800) 927-2891. It is for FHA and you can get a lot of your questions answered there. There are restrictions on the type of work done on mobile homes and possible restrictions on mobile homes vs. modular. I'm sure other forum members can assist you further. Hope that helps!

i think you're looking for the 203b FHA loan.
203k is for rehabbing the property.

Find a good broker that does FHA loans for manufactured homes....there a SOME lenders that dont give you a high rate JUST because it's a mobile home. You will need to buy the land/home together.

Is there a loan available for the purchase of a manufactured/mobile home with or without land and little or no money down?

Hi Leah!

Yes, there are many lenders who offer mobile or manufactured home loans. It is not easy to get no-down payment mobile home loans but you can definitely get mobile home loans on low down payment.
