Used MOVED Double Wide Financing?

Post by mjstef » Sun Oct 12, 2008 4:21 pm

Just a quick question. I have been told it is impossible to finance a double wide that has been taken apart and moved. From my understanding only FHA has this restriction. Can a piece of land, say 5 acres and a used D/W be financed together or do they have to be financed seperately? Say a guy has $20K cash to put down and the value of the home is 50K and the land/well/septic is 50K. Is this doable??
