Condo, Cooperative or Park Mortgages

We provide financing and Real Estate Mortgages, for a Mobile or Manufactured Homes.

These homes may be installed at a hybrid type location, such as a condo community, cooperative or park.

Condo or CooperativeHybrid, or quasi-land cooperative communities, cannot be financed the same way as manufactured homes on fee land. The mortgage is a specialty loan similar to loaning on mobile homes in a park.

Loan Programs available today are 10 to 20 years. No 30 year loans are available for this type of loan at this time. The Loan term depends on the size of the loan. The higher the loan amount, the more willing the lender is to make a longer term loan.

Interest rates are higher than conventional funding. Each home is unique.

Locations are important. Some areas are not available for our loans programs because the loan amounts are too small or the area is depressed. Please check with us for your special financing needs and a custom quote.

Examples of a Cooperative Mobile Home Community:

The Groves, in Invine, is classified as a Cooperative Mobile Home Community. The Groves is a Senior plus mobile home community, owned and managed by a Corporation.

The buyer acquires the home, plus a share in the Groves Homeowners, Inc. The Agreement via the shares, provides the rights, including the ownership of the home, and adds many membership benefits.

There are limited lenders for this type of ownership. We deal with three, and the last lender has a broader range of underwriting, leading to approvals. This means, if you have a challenge to your credit, it may still be possible for you to purchase and finance this type of Cooperative Property.

Please call or write me to discuss your purchase and credit profile. Within just a few minutes, on the phone, I will give you a summary of your lending options, as a borrower, and we can discuss the age and location information of your present or future home.

Thank you, Judy Sellens
