Hi Peter,

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. http://activerain.com/blogs/johnarendsen

Peter i moved to Fla in 2003 as a manufactured homes dealer !
With great disapproval many people stated to me they didn't want a manufactured home.
After listening to the many complaints, i began to realize that most people really didn't know the different.
There are 2 styles of manufactured homes;
1). a mobile home
2). a modular home
Both are made inside of a factory and on some occasions the same location !
If most consumers ever had the chance to see how a modular home is built !
They would never buy a traditionally built home..
When i first became a modular home dealer i thought i was getting something for nothing ! Until i went on tour of the plant ! If traditional homes were built like the modular homes 90% of the people could not afford to purchase them . You have probably been in modular home / commercial building and didn't know it..
Even though this wasn't exactly the answer to the question that you ask ! I suggest that you take a walk though both factories and make your own decision before buying..
