I want to purchase a 14 acre property with 2 mobile homes that are not on a foundation. Does anyone know who does these loans?

You may have to look out for lenders who offer personal property loans. It may not be possible for you to qualify for FHA or conventional loans as the mobile homes are not on foundation.
