Thanks for the advice. I guess I should have explained the reasoning behind this. and no Murray, It has nothing to do with being ashamed of living in a mobile home...Hell, I call it a trailer. Anyway, Tom pretty much hit the nail on the head. I was told by a mortgage person that there were certain things I can do to my manufactured home to make it "modular" so that it can be appraised as a single family dwelling. I was told many times that it doesn't matter what I do to my manufactured home, it will depreciate. If it appraises out as a single family dwelling (i was told) than it will be worth more and when I am ready to sell, I can get more out of it. My 2.5 acres, along with my home are already considered real property. I guess I will have to check with the county like Tom said.
