Types of properties financed
Most of the mortgage companies listed in the rate table below offer residential home loan assistance for stand-alone stick built homes, condos, townhomes, and modular homes. Some even finance mobile homes but you will need to contact the lender or broker for details.
Rates may vary by the type of property being financed. For example, many lenders set higher interest rates for condominiums and mobile homes. Pricing may also vary for other reasons such as how the borrower plans on using the property. Those looking to finance a primary residence will likely find better rates than what is available for financing vacation homes or investment properties.
