Frequently Asked Questions



Q.  Are there income tax advantages to owning your own Factory-Built home?


Owning a factory-built home makes good economic sense.  You can deduct the interest you pay on your mortgage loan from your income taxes.  And interest will comprise nearly all of your monthly payment for over half the number of years you'll be paying on your mortgage.


The American dream of home ownership still lives and Champion Home Center can make the dream a reality for you and your family.

Factory-built homes are an Investment In Your Future.  They give you the opportunity to build the investment and tax advantages that only comes with owning your own home.


Q. Does the home have to be on a permanent foundation?

A. No. We can do singlewide and doublewide homes with or without a permanent foundation. This allows financing for homes on rented land, in parks, on leased property or on family land.


Q. What is the maximum loan to value?

A. Up to 95% LTV on a primary residence. Closing costs can be financed into the loan or seller concessions may be used. Credit quality, occupancy type, loan affordability, and collateral type will ultimately determine your loan-to-value or down payment requirement.


Q. Where do the loans close?

A. On a home only loan, Champion Home Center will hold the closing, or we will mail the documents directly to you. A notary must notarize several forms. Funds will be disbursed as quickly as possible after we receive the completed closed loan package back in our office. On a land/home loan, all real estate transactions must close with a title company or attorney. Funds will be disbursed at closing.


Q. What closing fees are charged?

A. Fees for origination, credit bureau, title transfer, and appraisal can be charged if applicable. Other fees that can be charged, if applicable, include Title/Escrow/Attorney fees for closing the transaction. All closing costs can be financed into the loan if necessary except for the cost of appraisal (if applicable)
