There most likely may be a conflict regarding the rights of ownership in a sale/purchase transaction which could prevent financing and any credits/rebates. As Dana stated, If the mobil home is not permanently affixed to the site, and the wheels, axles, tongue/tow hitch are not removed, it is not considered real property (real estate) but personal property, same a any licensed vehicle, boat, or travel trailer.

My understanding is that if the mobile is not permanently attached(still has wheels,etc.) it is considered moveable,personal property like a car and not real estate. However,you should check to see what the laws are in your state regarding this. A local agent could probably help you with this.
