Perhaps one of the best ways to finance your manufactured home is through a traditional mortgage. Advantages of going this route include lower interest rates, better terms and qualifying for tax deductions. In order to finance your manufactured home with a traditional mortgage, the home must sit permanently on land the homeowner owns. Your home must be classified as "real property" in order to qualify.
FHA loans exist for those looking to purchase a manufactured home. However, in order to qualify, the property must be on land that the buyer owns, not leases. According to the FHA, the mortgage must cover the unit and the site and the loan term cannot exceed 30 years. An FHA mortgage differs from a traditional mortgage in that the down payment requirements are lower (3.5 percent minimum), credit standards are looser, and the paperwork is lengthier. Keep in mind that with an FHA loan, like that of a traditional mortgage, the home must be properly secured to the land that it sits on.
Finally, for those that lease the land that the home will sit on, their only option for financing is with a chattel mortgage. A chattel mortgage comes with higher interest rates and shorter terms, which increases the monthly payment. Those with good credit may be able to get rates in the high 6-percents. But those with poor credit should expect to pay a 10 percent or more interest rate. If the buyer doesn't own the land under the home, the home is considered "personal property" as opposed to "real property."
