Manufactured homes are also eligible for government-insured loans offered by the and the under the U.S. Department of Agriculture. As with conventional mortgages, there are many factors involved in determining the loan amount you will qualify for under these programs. These factors include:

  • State laws
  • Whether the home is attached to the land
  • Whether you are also purchasing the land
  • Neighborhood covenants
