depends of several different factors, the year of the mobile home and
current value is a strong factor, as is the credit of the applicant
and the monthly Income. When you think
of mobile home financing, think JCF.
Once the mobile home financing
loan is approved, the amount of the down payment determines the
interest rate offered. As an example, a 10 or 20 percent down will
offer a better rate than 5 Percent Down. Our terms vary from 7 years
to 25 years, depending on the loan program you choose. The best
manufactured home financing rate can normally be obtained in most
cases with at a 10 year term. It is important to remember that the
shorter the term. the less interest you will pay in the long
HOME REFINANCING - LOWER RATE & LOWER
manufactured home refinancing - By adjusting your current
Interest Rate and the number of remaining loan payments, many things
can be accomplished. Savings can be great and long term savings even
better. Reduced monthly payments and thousands of dollars of savings
are a few of the possible benefits of mobile home refinancing or that
low rate manufactured home loan.
If the manufactured home is in good condition
and there is a sufficient amount of equity in your home, additional
options such as an equity cash-out and debt consolidation manufactured home mortgage can
be an option. Our Staff will quickly ascertain whether manufactured
home refinance will be beneficial. Our goal is to make sure each and
every customer is offered the right mobile home finance option.
Q:What Credit Score is Needed
for a Manufactured Home Mortgage Loan?
Lending Group is an A paper loan provider and we require good to
excellent credit. Currently, our minimum credit score for purchase
financing is an Equifax 630, straight refinance Equifax 630 and cash
out or consolidation requires an Equifax score of 700+. Homes 1970 -
1975, requires an Equifax 720, for both purchase & refinance.
JCF primarily uses Equifax Credit, but may also use Experian and Trans
Union. We will look at lesser scores on a case by case basis. In all
situations, you must have a minimum of 4 years credit history. .
Q: What Types of MH Homes
Qualify for Financing?
A: JCF Lending Group finances mobile homes, broken into three
categories, manufactured homes, modular homes and park "RV" models.
We can finance single and multi-section homes as follows, single
section homes can be no older than 20 years. Multi-Section homes can
be no older than 1977, with the exception of California, where the
multi-section homes can be 1970 & newer. All homes must be in
good condition, and must not need major repair, to include roofing,
skirting, siding and carpeting. The home must have been previously
titled and cannot be a brand new home being sold by a dealer. If the
home must be financed and then moved, we are not the company for
Q: What About Consumers with
Poor or Fair credit?
A: Unfortunately, our low loan rates do not allow for us to
make risky loans. But it is also important to understand why. Recent
studies have shown that Seventy percent of homes that have been
repossessed in recent months have been owned by consumers
in the sub-prime category, those people with
fair to poor credit records. Of the 7,000 repossessed in the last
three months, nearly 5,000 were on sub-prime mortgages. Those figures
jump dramatically when you look at a two year time span. Nearly 90%
of poor credit mortgage holders will be seriously late or will have
gone into collection on their home mortgage.
Q: I Have Bad Credit. Can I use
a Cosigner with JCF Lending Group?
A: No. Every applicant must meet our credit criteria. We would
caution potential consumers looking for this solution, as most
upscale mobile home parks and leased lot communities will not grant
approval for residency for consumers with a poor credit history.
Normally, all occupants over the age of 18 that plan to live in a
mobile home park or leased lot manufactured home community, must pass
both a credit and criminal background check.
Q: Does JCF Offer Land &
Manufactured Home Financing?
A: No. JCF Lending Group is a manufactured home only loan provider. If
there is land or acreage involved in your transaction, we are not the
company for you. JCF is not licensed to finance land or the
combination of land and manufactured home. We can only finance the
home when it has not been deeded together with land. Most of our
customers live in mobile home parks, manufactured home communities or
rented/family land situations.
Q: My Mobile Home is in a Park
and/or on leased land, Can You Help?
A: Yes. JCF
specializes in this type of manufactured home financing and/or loans.
In fact, this is what the name of our URL (www.chattelmortgage.net)
means, a loan for a home not attached to property by way of deed or
title. We offer the lowest rate & fee combination
Q: Does JCF Finance Brand New
Homes coming from a Dealer?
A: Yes, as long as the
home is set-up and in livable condition prior to funding. We also
limit dealer commission to a maximum of 30% of the dealers cost for
the home. If the dealer needs funds prior to setting up the home, we
cannot assist you.
Q: Can I obtain 100% Financing
for a Manufactured Home?
A: No. We require a minimum 5% down payment on all purchase
financing transactions. We should be clear that a 5% down payment
will not be acceptable in all cases. The final determination if a 5%
down payment will be sufficient will be determined by either an
Advanced Book Value Report or an appraisal. The year of the
mobile or manufactured home determines the
maximum LTV or loan to value of the manufactured home in question.
Manufactured homes 15 years and newer should qualify for the 5% down
payment program, but in some cases, an older mobile home will qualify
for this program as well. For example, a 1982 mobile home that
appraises for $100,000, but the sales price is $50,000, should
qualify for the 5% down payment because of the equity involved. The
appraisal or book value report can offset the needed down payment
either positively or negatively.
Q: What are JCF's
Manufactured Home Down Payment Requirements?
stated above, we require a minimum of 5% down payment for our
manufactured home purchase program with rate breaks at 10% & 20%.
We require that consumers provide two (2) recent bank statements to
support that the proceeds were in the bank and not borrowed. We also
must see all down payment checks as a condition of funding. If the
down payment is coming from a 401K account or a home sale, we will
need to see a paper trail to support the down payment proceeds. If
you are in doubt, please contact customer service for more
information and/or clarification.
Updated Policy: Consumers with
multiple current mortgages and/or residences, to
include vacation homes, will now be required to have a minimum down
payment of 20% on all purchases. This policy change is due to the
recent influx of consumers wishing to walk away their current home,
in favor of more affordable housing. This policy is only a temporary
change until the housing market has recovered. Consumers wishing to
purchase a manufactured home as their primary and only residence will
still enjoy down payments as low as 5%.
