A 650 score would be a conventional financing requirement. However, for an FHA loan (which most manufactured homes are going to be purchased through) your credit score limits are going to be up to the lender. Most lenders require a 580 or above while I can do it with a 550. Hopefully you will work with a lender that makes it easy for you to qualify.

Good Luck!

Hi Libby,

I just called a mobile home broker and was told you would need to have a FICO score of 650 or higher. If you'd like more information for buying a mobile home in Maine, please let me know.

Probably 580 and above would be enough to qualify you.
