Manufactured Home Loans In Austin

Manufactured houses provide an economical homeownership alternative for certain families, and recent advancements in quality and safety have made them more appealing.

What is a Manufactured Home?

Factory-built dwellings that may be installed on a plot of land are referred to as manufactured housing. Styles range from little trailers to houses that appear to be erected permanently on a site. The technical definition of a manufactured home is any factory-built home built and constructed after June 15, 1976.

Mobile vs. Manufactured Home

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) established the federal regulations governing the construction of mobile homes on June 15, 1976. If you purchase a prefabricated home built before June 15, 1976, you are purchasing a mobile home; however, if you buy a new one or one made after that date, you are purchasing a manufactured home.

Manufactured homes today exhibit little resemblance to mobile homes of the past. They often provide a variety of floor plans and interior options, ranging from essential to intricate designs with vaulted ceilings, drywall, fully equipped modern kitchens, comfortable bedrooms with walk-in closets, and bathrooms with recessed bathtubs and whirlpools.

Financing a Manufactured Home Purchase

Capital Home Mortgage provides competitive interest rates on fixed-rate, and adjustable-rate mortgages, which are popular with Austin manufactured home purchasers. If you have more particular financing requirements, one of the following options may be ideal for you:

  • FHA Construction Loan One-Time Close (OTC)

Borrowers can finance the acquisition of a lot, new home construction, and permanent mortgage with one loan and one closing with the FHA One-Time Close Loan. A consolidated closing saves you both time and money. When the loan converts to a permanent mortgage, you pay a single set of closing expenses, and there is no need to re-qualify.

The FHA also provides a Title I program. A Title I loan can be used to buy or refinance a manufactured home, a developed property on which a manufactured house can be built, or a manufactured home and lot combination. The home must be the borrower’s primary residence.

  • VA Construction Loan

Many VA borrowers find manufactured homes appealing, but they frequently have drawbacks. They must meet the lender’s minimum property criteria and other guidelines. To be eligible for a 30-year VA loan, manufactured homes must be attached to a permanent foundation and classed as real property, brand new or used. They will also need to meet the VA’s Minimum Property Requirements significantly.

Borrowers frequently obtain a construction loan from a builder or a local lender, then refinance that short-term loan into a permanent VA mortgage once the home is completed. This is a frequent route for stick-built prefabricated homes and new manufactured homes.

  • USDA Construction Loan

The USDA has made financing easier by offering construction-to-permanent loans through its Single-Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program. Buyers can use a single closing loan instead of two separate loans for construction and the home itself.

The USDA construction loan OTC combines a construction loan and standard USDA mortgage into a single transaction. Borrowers have only one mortgage closing before construction begins. They only have one promissory note and one set of closing costs. When the building is finished, you’ll be left with a 30-year fixed rate.

  • Conventional Construction Loan

Most manufactured home buyers prefer a construction-to-permanent loan since it covers the construction of your manufactured home and the mortgage that follows. This not only saves time and paperwork, but it also means you just have to pay closing fees once.

With a conventional loan, the buyer is only responsible for interest payments on funds released throughout the construction term. All payments are disbursed as needed, with signatures from buyers and dealers on each draw.
