Manufactured Home Mortgage Loans / Financing
Whether you want to live in it yourself or rent it out to tenants, you have options. Alternative lenders are more interested in the equity involved than your credit score or any other metric. The amount of equity available in the manufactured home will generally drive the decision. For example, if you’re buying a $150,000 manufactured home and have $20,000 to put down, and also own land value at $100,000 in which the RTM will be secured. Once a new appraisal is completed the value of the RTM and land would likely come in at over $300,000. In simple theory you would begin your Manufactured Home Mortgage Loan with $150,000 in equity and increase it with each monthly payment. The manufactured home lender is concerned with what would happen if you went into default and the house had to be sold. In that instance, the appraisal would indicate whether having over $150,000 in equity; therefore a very secure investment for a private lender.
In some cases you can get an interest only manufactured mortgage home loan while you either save up the rest of the balance to pay the loan off at the term, or you can amortize the home for up to 30 and even 35 years. Obviously, you’re paying a lot more over time because of the added interest expense, but if you can take advantage of prepayment privileges that some lenders offer, you will end up ahead of the game.
If you’re looking at putting your manufactured home up in a rural community, be aware that most alternative lenders require an LTV ratio of 55% to 65% depending on location, although in some cases it can go as high as 70%.
If you already own the land and just want to buy the home itself, Amansad Financial has some connections to lenders who will simply provide a cash take out on the land to be used to purchase the RTM. Again, equity is the driving force in such a decision.

If you’re going to take out a private mortgage, you’re starting a relationship with a lender that will work a little differently than what you can expect from a bank or other traditional lender. Let’s take a look at some of the key differences, so you’ll know what you have in store.
Most people take out a private mortgage to get started on home ownership while they’re still repairing their credit. Private mortgages generally have short terms (often one to two years) and sometimes just allow interest-only payments. Private lenders do not have to renew mortgages when the term expires, so you want to keep your options open by making your repayments on time. Your credit score will improve (increasing your chances of a transition to a bank or other traditional lender at renewal). If you realize that you need to adjust your withdrawal date for a particular payment, give your lender at least a week’s notice.
If you change employers during the term of a private mortgage, there are no requirements mandating that you update that information. However if you do provide that update, you strengthen your relationship with the private lender, showing that you are serious about bettering your financial situation. Even if you haven’t notified your private lender of the change, that will be a requirement for extending or renewing the loan in many cases.
Improving Your Credit
If you took out a private mortgage while you intended to improve your credit, there are improvement counselors who can help you get that score up. The purpose of this is to help you qualify for a bank loan when the private mortgage term expires – which will save you tens of thousands of dollars over the amortization of the entire mortgage.
Obtaining New Credit
Try to avoid opening new lines of credit, and keep your credit inquiries to a minimum during the term of your private loan. These activities can affect your score adversely, which definitely will not help you when it’s time to shift from a private lender to a bank or traditional lender.
The Value of Communication
Remember – a private lender is entrusting you with a great deal of capital. The clearer your communication is, the stronger your relationship will be. Private lenders are much more willing to work with borrowers who are honest and upfront.
