Yes, there are major lenders i.e. Wells Fargo and others who will lend on MH's in Fee simple MH communities i.e. condo conversions, sub-divisions, planned unit developments, (PUD's) or on private lot's/parcels, etc providing they are not pre HUD (built before June 15, 1976) and are on an engineered certified foundation system.

Some circumstances will also require a California Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) 433a certification as well. Please feel free to check out our website for further information. If you want to contact us directly email me at or call 760 815-6977. We would be happy to refer you to a lender that could work with you providing you meet the basic requirements.

Hello Marsha:

One thing to keep in mind when dealing with lease land property like Mission Hills is that there may be additional concerns to think about with regards to obtaining financing. I am experienced in getting loans for buyers purchasing on lease land here in the desert.

Please feel free to email or call if you need to be pre approved for financing on lease land. I'd be happy to assist.

Best Regards,

Uriah Anderson,

John Arendsen answered:
If it is indeed a fee simple condo conversion, sub division or planned unit development (PUD) you should only have to pay an HOA fee but that sounds like a pretty high HOA to me. If, however, it's a co-op (corporation whereby the residents are all equal shareholders) then you may well be looking at a higher HOA, Maintenance, management or what ever they choose to call it.

Personally I'd run the other way from a coop. You can't get a 2nd on your home or even refi it because it's all owned by a corporation. I was involved with some coops in Florida in '04 and '05 and really tood a hit. That said, I'm not declaring that this is a coop but I am suggestion that you really do some due diligence.

They are awesome. If you own a home with equity and you are above 62, you can vampirically extract the cash value out of that home drop by drop and never have to pay it back -- unless you sell or move while you are still alive.

For more information, read my 5 part blog about the new FHA reverse mortgage program updates from September 2010. Link below- good luck.
