If manufactured house has not been converted to real estate, then this can be done at closing.
The following items need to be uploaded in the Closed Loan Package:

A copy of the recorded affidavit and the surrendered title to the manufacture home.
A copy of the executed affidavit and title (to be surrendered) sent to the county clerk for recording.

If a new manufactured home, copy of the original certificate of origin from the manufacturer that is going to be delivered to the county clerk so that title can be ordered.

After title is received, affidavit is prepared for recording and title is surrendered.
Within 90 days or less from closing date, need original of newly recorded affidavit and coy of surrendered title.

Failure to send to KHC within timeframe could result in repurchase.
Affixations are not acceptable.

Do not record affixations with the mortgage.

If you can handle those qualifiers, here's the deal:

• You can only buy HUD homes. Go to the HUD Homes For Sale web page.
• You must use a HUD-registered real estate broker or agent.
• You must qualify for and use Federal Housing Administration (FHA) financing.
• You must plan to be an "owner-occupant," buying the property to live in and not as an investment.
• The home's purchase price must be no more than the appraised value of the property. If you bid a higher price you can pay the difference in cash, minus $100.
• The $100 down incentive must be on the executed contract. That means you have to specifically request the incentive. Your real estate agent should be aware of this provision.
• In some cases, HUD will also cover up to 3 percent of the closing costs.
• The $100 down payment program is eligible for the FHA 203(k) loans. The loans allow borrowers to use a portion of their purchase loan to repair and renovate run-down homes.
That's a good thing because HUD homes are sold in an "as-is" condition -- what you see is pretty much what you get. You could find a diamond in the rough or fool's gold. HUD homes often include a property condition report, but that is not a warranty.
The property report can resemble a home inspection report, but HUD home buyers are always encouraged to get a home inspection to determine just what "as is" is.

Kentucky USDA Loans

Kentucky USDA Loans

What are USDA Home Loans?

USDA stands for United States Department of Agriculture. A USDA Mortgage provides a low-cost insured home mortgage loan that suits a variety of options. A USDA mortgage is likely the best home loan option if you want to purchase a home with no down payment. If you're unsure about your credit rating, or have concerns about a down payment when you're doing a home loan comparison, USDA Rural Mortgage Loans can give you piece of mind with zero-down, super low closing costs and no monthly mortgage insurance.

What Types of Loans does USDA offer in Kentucky?

Currently, there are two kinds of USDA Home Loans available in Kentucky for single family households:

USDA Guaranteed Rural Housing Loans

USDA Guaranteed Home Mortgage Loans are the most common type of USDA Loan in Kentucky and allow for higher income limits and 100% financing for home purchases. USDA Guaranteed Loan applicants may have an income of up to 115% of the median household income for the area. Area income limits for this program can be viewed here. All USDA Guaranteed Loans carry 30 year terms and are set at a fixed rate.

USDA Direct Rural Housing Loans

USDA Direct Housing Loans are less common than USDA Guaranteed Loans and are only available for low and very low income households to obtain homeownership, as defined by the USDA. Very low income is defined as below 50 percent of the area median income (AMI); low income is between 50 and 80 percent of AMI; moderate income is 80 to 100 percent of AMI. Click here to see area income limits for this program.

What factors determine if I am eligible for a USDA Loan in Kentucky?

To be eligible for A USDA Rural Loan in Kentucky, your monthly housing costs (mortgage principal and interest, property taxes, and insurance) must meet a specified percentage of your gross monthly income (29% ratio). Your credit background will be fairly considered. A 620 FICO credit score is required to obtain a USDA Rural Housing Loan approval through most lenders. You must also have enough income to pay your housing costs plus all additional monthly debt (41% ratio). These ratios can be exceeded somewhat with compensating factors. Applicants for loans may have an income of up to 115% of the median income for the area. Maximum USDA Guaranteed Loan income limits for your area can be found at here. Maximum USDA Direct Loan income limits for your area can be found at here. Families must be without adequate housing, but be able to afford the mortgage payments, including taxes and insurance.

What is the maximum amount that I can borrow?

The maximum amount for an USDA home loan is determined by:

Maximum Loan Amount: The is no set maximum loan amount allowed for USDA Rural Home Loans. Instead, your debt-to-income ratios will dictate how much home your can afford (29/41 ratios). Additionally, your total household monthly income must be within USDA allowed maximum income limits for your area. Maximum USDA Guaranteed Loan income limits for your area can be found at here.

Maximum financing: The maximum USDA Rural Development Loan amount is 103.5% of the appraised value of the home (100% plus the 3.5% USDA RD Loan guarantee fee).

How much money will I need for the down payment and closing costs?

USDA Rural Development Mortgage Loans require no down payment and they allow for the closing costs to be included in the loan amount (appraisal permitting).

What property types are allowed for USDA Rural Loan Mortgages?

While USDA Mortgage Guidelines do require that the property be Owner Occupied (OO), they do allow you to purchase condos, planned unit developments, manufactured homes, and single family residences.
