September 2022 Lunch & Learn / Webinar: Financing Manufactured Home

Buying and Financing Double and Singlewide Manufactured Homes

Manufactured homes the black sheep of the real estate industry.  These are often referred to as singlewides, doublewides, trailers, etc. . . in a nut shell these homes are built in a factory, issued a title, then delivered to a property where they are set on a foundation and affixed to the land.   Over the years manufactured homes have had a cloud over them.  This has made for more restrictive mortgage guidelines.  Those have loosed up the last few year but they are more restrictive.  During this event we are going to discuss the different options out there for financing manufactured homes.   We will also cover things you need to watch out for.    Here is a list of some of the things we will cover.

October Lunch and Learn / Webinar: The Ins & Outs of Appraisals

Appraisals – Its complicated

When we start talking appraisals it can get confusing.  As lenders, we learn what’s important for getting the loan closed.  Realtors put their market analysis hat on when they think about them.  Neither is correct.  Look at it this way, an appraiser is in a profession in and of it’s self.  Appraisers are licensed and trained to look at property values in a pretty specific way.  On top of that the different loan programs all have different “rules” the appraiser must follow.  Then at the end of the day its not a specific formula but a matter of opinion.  That’s why we always tell people we could order 5 appraisals on a property and we would get 5 different sets of results.   During this event we are going to go over many of the things the appraisers look at, how they analyze the property, and some of the different variables that come into play across different loan programs.  If you are looking for a deeper understanding of how appraisers think this is a must attend event.
