Everything you need to know about FHA loans
If your credit score is 580 or higher, you can finance as much as 96.5% of the home’s purchase price, so you’ll only need to put down 3.5%. How much you can borrow will depend on where you live — for instance, homebuyers in places like New York and San Francisco can borrow more because the cost of living is higher than in other areas.
One way to find approved FHA loan lenders is to go directly to the HUD lender list search tool. You can search for lenders by city, county, state, ZIP code and mortgage type. [Link]

FreddieMac – If you are buying a manufactured home to install on land that you already own, or are planning to purchase, it can be titled as real property once the home is affixed to the land.
