As a Realtor who lives and works in the Ocala area, I feel your best option is to enlist the services of a Realtor from our area. Also, getting prequalified for the type of financing you want is key. When you are ready to make an offer on a home you want, the seller sees that you are serious because you have taken the time to know what your financing abilities are. And, mobile home financing requires special criteria to be met for the lender, so you need someone who can stay connected with your loan officer and make sure everything goes smoothly.
I would be happy to assist you not only in finding a mortgage company or bank, but also to help you find a home that meets your needs. It is a wonderful time to buy in our area! I can have listings sent directly to your email with photo galleries, if you would like to contact me.
Best wishes and hope that I have helped,
