I'm way late for this one but it just popped up on my radar so here goes anyway.

Today's "Manufactured" "Factory Built" Home is constructed exactly like any Site-Buit (Stick Built) Home. In most cases even better inasmuch as they are built in a indoor climatically controlled environment and inspected by a liecensed HUD inspector through every phase of construction.

As a RE Broker, Manufactured Home Dealer, General Contractor and Manufactured Home Contractor in California, Arizona, Oregon and Florida for the past 25 years I can assure you that having built equally as many site built projects as I have Manufactured Home projects that I would select a manufactured home any day.

As for financing? There are plenty of lenders out there willing to finance MH's if they meet the following requriements.

I'm not sure I understand your question, so maybe post back with more details. I'll take a guess though... older mobile homes aer hard to finance. With no loan you need an all cash buyer. If the price is too high that all cash buyer could put his money down on a newer larger home. So that puts downward pressure on your asking price, or maybe you will have to carry the loan for someone. You should do a couple things. Talk to a realtor in your area who deals with manufactured and mobile homes. Find out how much they could sell it for and what it would take to get it sold. That's key. Second find a lender who can give you current lending standards for your home and let you know if it is even a possibility. If you don't have any manufactured home lenders, email me and I'll put you in contact.
One other option, if your home is just too old, but you have some cash you could pull out the old one, put in a new one which lenders will finance and then sell. Once again check in with a real estate agent or home dealer in your area to see if this is worth doing. you don't want to spend more than you will get.
