Here's How To Obtain Financing For Your Mobile Home


Contrary to popular belief, there are numerous mobile home financing firms which can provide financing to anyone who wants to own a mobile home. It is important though to ensure that you are well prepared before you approach any of them so as to ensure that your application is successful. For most of these companies, the mobile and manufactured home must be in good to excellent condition. It should not be in need of major repairs in the roof or flooring. Many firms will also demand that the unit you want to purchase should be your primary residence or vacation home, this means that the unit should not be for rental or a home that’s purchased for others.

Typically, many institutions will demand that the home must exceed 700 square feet; this implies that it can be multi or single section home. For your secondary residence or vacation home, the unit must be used by applicants or immediate family only. Further to the above, depending on the type of loan you are seeking, you must also have good to excellent credit rating, with most companies looking for a minimum mortgage score of 660. The credit history must also be more than three years old, with some firms making it mandatory for one to have current or previous car loan experience.

Depending on the firm, one must have a consistent work history unless one has retired. In this regard, you should have no major job gaps within two years. In the event that you have been in part-time employment, then the lending institution may demand a one to two year history on the same job. For those who are self employed then tax returns for the past two years may also be required. The same also applies to those who are on bonus and commission income. Those who are retired must also be able to provide award letters and proof of receipt. If you want to use your investment income then you should be able to provide proof of annual or monthly receipts.
