In today’s financial marketplace many lenders have decided to not participate in mobile home financing. Why? There are likely multiple reasons but the greatest one is likely due to how quickly manufactured homes can depreciate in value when compare to most stick built homes.
There are still some companies out there that will finance single and double wide mobile homes and possibly even allow for a cash-out mobile home loan transaction. Some lenders such as American Financial Resources (see below) offer FHA mobile home financing solutions which may require a slightly lower down payment than one might find through a non-approved FHA lender. Below you’ll find information on a number of mortgage companies we were able to track down who offer financing assistance for manufactured homes on both owned and leased land.
