You may need to seek private lending, Contact a lender and they should be able to help you,

Ask your bank for a signature loan with a CD backing the note.

Conventional lenders don't finance manufactured homes.

Also, conventional lenders don't go below about $50,000.

There are a few specialized lenders who'll lend on manufactured homes, especially if it's a newer one. But, as noted, the interest rates will be higher. If the home is in a park, as the park management for recommendations on lenders. They'll know.

Ask the seller if he/she is willing to owner-finance.

Alternatively, there is private money out there, but that's expensive too. Probably in the range of 12%-14% per annum.

Hope that helps.

Manufactured homes are an odd animal. Financing on them is restricted as well. $40,000 is a very common lower limit for loan amount. The costs of putting together a small loan are so large that soon you won't be able to find many lenders to help you (after QM kicks in January 1).

Your best bet is a local bank, not trying to go the big national bank route.

Unless you can get a signature loan (not on the house), your choices are limited.
