Manufactured Home Mortgage Loans

Are you thinking of purchasing a manufactured home? Capital Home Mortgage can assist you with a manufactured home loan. Manufactured homes offer advantages over traditional housing, but there are significant differences that need to be understood to make the best decision.  

The first step is to understand the different types of manufactured housing available and what type of financing is available for each type.  Once you decide what type of manufactured home meets your needs, you have to decide if an existing manufactured home or a new build is the better option.  An existing manufactured home is typically move-in ready, so there is no waiting, not to mention everything is done so that the acquisition cost could be less.  On the other hand, a new build allows you to make the decisions on style, type, and location, but it requires time and setup, which can add cost.  Either way, Capital Home Mortgage has the knowledge to walk you through the process.  Call today to speak with one of our loan officers and get started.  Call today (800) 804-5181 to speak with our Manufactured Loan Specialist.

Manufactured Homes Explained
MOBILE Homes - The Grandfather to Todays manufactured homes

Before 1976, mobile homes were mass-produced in response to the desire for inexpensive, movable housing, but building criteria were not regulated.  Beginning in the early 1900s, people needed to relocate to wherever work was available to support their families, and thus the mobile house was born. The design of these earliest mobile homes resembled that of a modern camper or trailer, with an exposed trailer coupler and wheels that made the house easily moveable.  Typically, the residence was constructed on steel I-beams that ran end-to-end and could be installed on concrete blocks, wooden blocks, metal supports, or a concrete foundation at the chosen site.  Although the term “mobile home” is still popular outside the federal government, HUD guidelines established June 15, 1976 have classified all mobile, factory-built housing types as manufactured.  The department details the energy, wind, and snow requirements for this type of dwelling. Financing for true Mobile Homes is problematic due to their age and no construction guidelines.  In most cases cash is the only option for these purchases.

A Manufactured Home is a residential structure built off-site in a factory setting, then transported to its permanent location and placed on a foundation.  Modern manufactured houses can be quite sophisticated in design and can offer amenities similar to site-built homes.  They can be single-wide, double-wide, or even larger, and they’re constructed using materials and techniques that meet stringent quality standards.  Manufactured Homes are built on steel chassis which offer a quicker construction and cost advantages.  A wide variety of Financing is offered for Manufactured Homes, but the individual options depend on the home itself as well as the placement.  If you are looking to purchase and place the home in mobile home park then a home only chattel loan is the loan required unless the park also conveys the land at which time you can look at other options.

Modular Home

Modular Home Loans

Modular Homes are a type of prefabricated construction where sections of the house, known as modules, are built  off-site in. a factory and then moved to the building site and assembled. Even though the modulars of the house were made ahead of time, the components, or modules, are put together during construction just like in a regular house.  In fact the primary distinction between manufactured and modular homes is that modular homes are built following all applicable state and local building requirements, while manufactured homes are constructed per the national HUD code.  Advantages of modular homes are: cost effectiveness, speed of construction, quality control, and customization. Financing for Modular Homes has the same options as manufactured homes with the exception of Chattel home only for park financing, as Modular Homes are not designed to be moved once completed and assembled.

Barndominium Home

Barndominium Home loans

Barndominium homes are a unique housing concept that combines elements of barns or agricultural buildings with those of a traditional home.  These structures often feature metal or steel frames, offering durability and a distinctive appearance.  Barndominiums typically incorporate open floor plans, high ceilings, and expansive spaces that allow for versatile interior designs.  They’ve gained popularity for their customizable nature, cost-effectiveness, and the ability to blend rustic aesthetics with modern living comforts.  Many homeowners find them appealing due to their potential for customization and often more affordable construction costs compared to conventional homes.  Would you like more specific information or details about barndominiums? Barndominium Financing follows traditional mortgage lending, but the loan must be supported by comparables for the local area.

Manufactured Home Financing

Manufactured Home Financing is separated into two categories:  Real Property and Chattel.  It’s important to understand the difference in real property verse chattel as this has an impact on the type of financing available and the resale ability of the home in the future.  Real property is when the home is titled and encumbered with the land.  This type of loan is eligible for all government financing and is a traditional mortgage with lower rates and lowers down payments.  Chattel means that the home is not considered real estate and is not tied to the land in any capacity.  This type of loan typically has a larger down payment, shorter terms and higher rates.  The other factors that determine what type of loan is required is the borrowers credit score, debt to income and down payment.
