Get Approved for a Manufactured Home Loan

Get Approved to find out how much money you can borrow from a lender (mortgage company) to buy your new home. Put all your pennies together to figure out how much money you have for a down payment. And secondly, we will need your credit score. We will ask you a few questions prior and get your permission prior to running your credit. With all two of these variables, down payment and credit score, we can tell you what your budget is for a new home.

Village Homes is a Federally Licensed Mortgage Originator (NMLS License #320580 & #317684) so you can be confident that your manufactured/mobile home loan meets all the federal guidelines.

Types of Manufactured Loans

Land as Down Payment “Land in Lieu”

If you own your own land or have family land you can often use it as your down payment, with no additional cash requirement up front. 

Home Only is called a “Chattel Loan”

If you will be purchasing a home to be placed on your land, rented land or manufactured home community where you lease the land, this program might be for you. Options are available for new and used single-section (single wide) or multi-section (double or triple wide) homes.

Down payments can be as low as 5% based on your unique credit profile.

Read what the professionals at Cascade say about Chattel Loans:

Federal Housing Administration (FHA) Loans

Under the Title I program, FHA approved lenders make loans from their own funds to eligible borrowers to finance the purchase or refinance of a manufactured home and or lot. FHA insures the lender against loss if the borrower defaults. Credit is granted based upon the applicant’s credit history and ability to repay the loan in regular monthly installments.

FHA does not lend money; FHA insures loans in order to encourage mortgagees to lend. Title I manufactured home loans are not Federal Government loans or grants. The interest rate, which is negotiated between the borrower and the lender, is required to be fixed for the entire term of the loan.

United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Loans

A VA loan is a mortgage loan available through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for service members, veterans, and their surviving spouses.

Home for Someone Else “Buy For”

It is possible for a home to be purchased and financed for someone else?

No Social Security Number

We have options for individuals with a valid ITIN. Matricula Consular de Alta Seguridad can be used as identification. 

Secondary Housing

Vacation or second home? If the home you are purchasing will not be your primary residence, our “secondary housing” program may be a fit to fill your financing needs.

Low or Challenged Credit “Equity Program”

If you have damaged credit, larger down payments can increase your chances of qualifying for financing.

Park Model Loans

Whether you’re looking to downsize or get a second home, we offer great rates and low down payments for park model homes. 

Zero Down Payment Program

We reward your outstanding credit with lower down payments. Some scores will qualify for ZERO down.
