Manufactured housing communities are crucial parts of the American residential landscape. In many rural areas, these communities are the only source of affordable housing. Within the MHC arena, there are communities that are actually resident owned- meaning, even Americans on a budget can have an ownership stake within the place that they live. Freddie Mac offers great financing for these resident owned communities. The Freddie Mac Manufactured Housing Resident Owned Community Loan (MHROC) boasts great terms, such as LTV up to 70%, flexible 5 to 30 year fixed-rate terms and amortizations of up to 30 years. In addition, these loans are typically non-recourse, allow supplemental financing, and can be used for both acquisition purposes and seasoned refinancing transactions.
