SHOP FOR A HOME
After working with your homebuyer coach, talk to a lender about getting pre-approved for a loan and then visit a manufactured home retailer to shop for the right home for you and your family.
OWN YOUR HOME
Enjoy the benefits of owning your own modern and energy-efficient home, saving money on monthly utility costs and building more equity in your home.
Where to Get Help
Buying your own home is a huge decision. You might be asking yourself: “Can I afford it?” “How will I be able to finance a home?” “What if I don’t qualify for a loan.” “Do I have enough saved for a down payment?” The SmartMH program will answer those questions – and more! Dedicated, nonprofit counseling professionals will work with you and your family to make a personalized action plan for buying your own home. Call 1-844-MHTODAY to be paired with a counselor who will work with you one-on-one.
Where to Finance Your Home
A big challenge is finding the right lender who understands manufactured housing – and your immediate and long-term needs. SmartMH lenders are dedicated to helping you successfully finance your home, and may be the perfect match for you and your family’s needs.
Where to Buy Your Home
Finding the right place to buy your manufactured housing retailer can be a challenge. Many homebuyers will visit several retail outlets before finding the right home for their family. SmartMH retailers want to help you into a smart, affordable and energy-efficient home – a home that makes the most sense for you and your family.
