203k loan on manufactured homes

Posted on: 28th Nov, 2007 02:29 am
I am a first time home buyer and would like to buy a manufactured home. the land isn't a rented one though. the manufactured home that i'm likely to buy has been one ok my friends' and now i am into improving it too. i've heard of 203k mobile home loans. Is it the right choice? can anyone out there help me with the criteria for eligibility of such land and what else do i need to keep in mind?
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.

i purchased a modular home 13 years ago and i realize that the interest rate is very high. i've paid extra each month, but i seem to owe as much on the principal as i did 13 years ago. i've never missed a payment and paid a little extra each month. i want to refinance at a lower interest rate for 15 years. any suggestions?

Hi Wess,

Do you have equity in your property? You need to appraise your property and check out if there is equity. If you do have equity in the property, you will be able to apply for a refinance with your current lender. However, that's not mandatory. You can contact other lenders and also apply for a refinance. If there is no equity in the property, then lenders will not approve it.

As far as I know, the HUD-insured 203k mortgage is offered for the purpose of buying as well as renovating mobile homes or remodeling such properties.

Hi Steve,

Well, as you're a broker, you will surely know that it will be completely the lender's discretion as to whether or not he will offer a loan for such a property. You and your client will have to speak to the local lenders and sort out the matter.
