FAQs

A mobile home was built before June 15, 1976. A manufactured home was built after this date. This is the date that HUD standards for construction of Manufactured Homes under 24 CFR Part 3280 have been met.
Manufactured Homes built after June 15, 1976 have a HUD tag attached to each movable section. Like the one below:

This question has a lot of answers. If you are great at marketing, like to negotiate, can take phone calls and messages at all hours of the day and night and are comfortable talking to strangers you can try selling it on your own. Although legal now in many states for a Realtor to sell a mobile home in a park, many try to treat them like a traditional sale and don’t know the intricacies of the mobile home world. Using someone that understands manufactured homes, can talk the language to the potential buyers and remove the roadblocks and headaches of negotiations makes a lot of sense.
This information is on the Title, Certificate of Origin or Purchase Agreement for the Manufactured Home. If you don’t have any of these, if it was made after June 15, 1976 there should be a compliance certificate somewhere in the home. It might be inside of a cabinet, under the sink or around the breaker box, etc. There should also be a red HUD tag on the exterior of the home that will give you the basic information. It can also be on your personal property tax bill or in county records.
Not necessarily. Manufactured homes are built to a national code. Manufactured homes are constructed in a factory environment that is not subject to weather conditions that can impact a home built on site. Energy efficiency and fire safety are just two of many qualities of manufactured home construction that are superior to a typical site-built home. In addition, Manufactured homes are built so they can be transported down the road at freeway speeds. Most site-built homes could never handle that kind of stress.
