The only manufactured homes in San Jose available are homes where you do not own the land. There are no down payment assistance programs for purchasing such homes in San Jose. In Campbell and Los Gatos there are a total of three small areas where the manufactured homes own the land under them. Down payment assistance is available in those areas along the lines Ms. Arndt suggests. Sales thee are very seldom.
