Looking for a lender who finances manufactured homes as a "2nd home" with 50% down.

Asked by Randy Charboneau, Grandville, MI Wed Nov 3, 2010

Can't find em. Do they exist anymore? FHA won't touch it unless its a primary. So frustrating!

Yes they exist....try Wells Fargo. I know the Midland, Mi location does them. Also, First Bank...I use the location out of West Branch. Independent Bank may as well. I live and work in a second home community so I run into these situations too! Good luck!

I haven't found any either.

Most of my buyers have been using hard money loans which are very expensive for long term holding.

It would seem that some community banks and portfolio lenders would consider it...but I have not found any yet in my area.

@Sonya - Thanks! I"ll check them out

@Michelle - GreenStone already rejected it - Wouldn't do it as a 2nd home

@Dave - Thank you. Didn't know Coldwell had a mortgage branch. I'll check into that.

If anyone else reading this has a lead for these, please post. Whoever gives me the lead that results in a loan gets the BEST ANSWER!
