Lenders provide manufactured home financing options that work for many income brackets.
A large selection of banks can finance manufactured and modular homes through a two-stage loan process. Another term for this is a construction-to-permanent loan.

- Your Purchase Agreement (from Dealer)
- Federal tax returns
- Proof of employment
- Work History
- W-2 forms
- Property deed
The list above is a good starting point when seeking manufactured home financing.
Once you’ve started filling out the paperwork for the manufactured home financing process, you’ll be able to see more clearly what needs to be done next.
Whatever financial institution you select will be able to tell you more specifically their requirements to complete the loan process.
Manufactured and Modulars can be for Everyone
Manufactured home financing opens funding doors that normally would be shut for everyday people.
Modular and manufactured homes are especially valuable for potential buyers when seeking an affordable housing solution.
Manufacturers have to adhere to strict guidelines to ensure quality and safety in their products.
Because of those guidelines, manufacturers create housing options that:
- Meet the same standards a site-built house is required to meet or HUD codes
- Are configured for a permanent foundation
- Fulfill the state and local requirements of the home’s future location
- Follow the specific region’s code requirements
These standards give financial institutes the assurances they need to trust your home will be a financially sound investment.
