General Financing Options

In general, most land-leased mobile homes that are older than 20 years are NOT financeable and require the full cash amount at time of purchase.

Personal Lending Options:

Some buyers may be able to secure personal loans or other options such as:

  • Personal loan from your bank or credit union
  • Credit card advance

Specialized Lending Options:

Under some circumstances, individuals looking to buy a manufactured home where they rent a lot at a mobile home community can get mortgage, sometimes called a chattel loan.

The Federal Housing Administration offers a program known as Title I, designed for owners whose mobile homes are on a permanent foundation but are within a manufactured housing community.

Among the requirements for a Title I mortgage:

  • The mobile home must be the borrower’s primary residence.
  • The home has to be on a rental site in a manufactured home park that conforms to FHA guidelines.
  • The lease agreement must meet FHA standards.

It’s not easy to find mobile home communities that meet the FHA’s strict guidelines, not many mobile home parks participate in the Title I program. You would need to contact the park office directly to see if they meet the FHA’s Title I guidelines.
