My finance' and I are looking for home with acreage to purchase in North East of WA state.

Asked by iamthecatsmeow, North Myrtle Beach, SC Thu Jun 6, 2013

But we have very limited guidelines to follow according to our lender, the property must have electricity, either a well or public water, can not be a manufactured home, acreage can be as much as 20 acres, we prefer no less than 5 though, and we want a very secluded, wooded, mainly flat place to live, with basically all four seasons, like in lots of snow. If anyone knows where we might be able to find a place such as this please feel free to email me at, thanks

Wow! I can't imagine buying a home without electricity, but of course that's me. As far as the other restrictions, on a FHA loan, as long as the land doesn't exceed the value of the home, you should be fine on any acreage, it doesn't matter how large the parcel is. We do Manufactured Homes Loans even in rural areas as long as they are on a Type II Permanent HUD Approved Foundation System. So, if you find something that is outside the perimeters of your current lender, please feel free to contact us as we are licensed in WA. Please click on the link, you might be surprised that you qualify for the USDA Rural Development Program, which in opinion is hand down one of the best loan programs going.

Best of Luck!……

Thank you for your reply and I will definitely check into this. As for no electricity I have done it, even no running water, lived kinda like a pioneer, we built our own log cabin from our own trees. Lived 20 miles from town, all when I was sixteen. I look back now and thank my parents for the experience. Anyway thanks again.
