A Modular Home is a very popular type of single-family home that can provide more square feet of living space for the price. The home is built indoors in a factory and assembled on the home-owner’s property. It is placed on a permanent foundation, with customary water, sewer, and electrical hook-ups. The home may include additional exterior spaces such as porches, decks, and garages. We finance Modular homes in a manner that is similar to a traditional stick-built home, once construction is complete.
This loan occurs in two steps. The first is a Construction Loan while the home is being built. Once complete, our Modular Home Loan product provides permanent financing. A description of our loan terms for this type of loan is shown below:
|Construction of Primary Residence Modular Home only (no rental or investment property)|

Loan proceeds are advanced as the home is built, and as construction inspection draws are completed. Escrow is not required during the construction phase.
