Ed answered:

As the ED of the nonprofit that actually administers the LIFT program, I suggets you contact Neighborhood Housing Services of Southern Nevada (NHSSN). NHSSN is the only organization that can grant you $15,000 in LIFT Funds. Wells Fargo donated the money to NeighborWorks American and NHSSN received the grant to provide the $15,000 Down Payment Assistance. So while Wells Fargo can act as the first Mortgage Lender they do not provide the funds for the second. NHSSN can provide you with a list of approved lenders and realtors that have been certified.

Robert Peddicord answered:
Of course, manufactured homes CAN BE converted to “real property.” I have been involved in such a venture, (as the loan officer). The one I did cost several thousands of dollars, (~$4000 ish). But, it can be done. You want to make sure you are working with a contractor who has the experience and knows his way around the building permits. Make sure the contractor is familiar with FHA standards. Stuff like that. But, it can be done.

Give me a call if you need the lead to a good contractor, or a local lender who can loan you money on the finished project.

Good luck!

I would like to add that if you are financing you will need to make sure the HOA is not in litigation which can be challenging these days as most HOA's are in litigation of one form or another.

Everyone's financing picture is very unique. There are financing options with 3.5%, 5%, 10%, 20% down, so I would recommend you go over the fine tuned details with mortgage advisor to get an exact answer for you. My lending partner, Anthony Washington with All Western Mortgage, is very savvy on programs and can help paint a clear picture for you. You can reach him at 877-686-3526 or
Best of Luck!

George Raymondo answered:
What I would be concerned with is getting past the tighter lending guidelines by identifying the issues upfront. Then you can shop lender fees and rates. For example, we have 11 investors that buy our loans, Wells Fargo Bank has only themselves. I know going in what investors will take what so we don't hit in the back of the head in the 11th hour. Guess your LO wasn't too experienced even to know his own products. Still astounds me when I hear this.

Best of Luck!

Mary Preheim answered:
My lender partner does loans for my foreign investors with great terms... The other lenders that are doing foreign purchase loans are for 2nd homes only... not investment. There is a difference. So it really does matter what your intent is for the home and how many you plan on buying.
You can contact Anthony Washington at All Western Mortgage toll free 877-686-35260 with any questions or to get the details of what it would be for you.

Best of luck!

Hi Michael,

I am a real estate agent and work with an in house lender at my company, who works for WJ Bradley. He is very experienced and gets deals done. He is one of the most knowledgeable lenders I have dealt with in the real estate industry, and always up to date on changes regarding different loan programs. Its almost april, and banks are taking significant amount of time to accept offers, process transactions, etc... I hope you have found something! If not, please call me and we can get moving.
