Manufactured Home Financing
eLEND offers home financing assistance for single and double wide manufactured homes on owned land throughout much of the United States. Borrowers can take advantage of eLEND’s specialized FHA loan designed for manufactured home financing. Through this program, borrowers enjoy the the security of fixed interest rates with highly competitive pricing. Programs are available for purchase financing and mortgage refinancing of eligible manufactured homes.
Types of Mobile Homes
A single wide mobile home is a home that is prefabricated, meaning it is built offsite and then transported to the property site as a single unit, and is 18 feet or fewer wide and 90 feet or fewer long. This can be a great choice for an affordable smaller home.
A double wide mobile home is a prefabricated home that is typically at least 20 feet wide and no more than 90 feet long. Generally, a double wide is constructed in two separate units within a factory environment. The two units are then transported to the site and joined together.
“Manufactured” is another term for mobile home, and refers to a house that has been constructed offsite, generally in a large factory, and is then towed to the homesite. Manufactured homes can be one unit (single wide) or two units (double wide) as outlined above.
Modular homes are very similar to stick built homes, but they are prefabricated in a factory or other offsite facility, and then transported in one or more sections to the home site and finished in place. Unlike mobile or manufactured homes, modular homes must meet the same local building codes as stick built homes, and also generally qualify for the same financing programs as homes built on site from the ground up.
