What is a Direct Loan Through Connect Lending?

A Direct Loan is a loan available through our Connect Lending group within Vanderbilt Mortgage. This loan is specifically for pre-owned, manufactured homes owned and sold by individuals.

At Vanderbilt Mortgage and Finance, Inc. we specialize in financing the purchase of new and pre-owned manufactured and modular homes. We offer a variety of loans to fit your financial situation.

Within Vanderbilt, we have a group called Connect Lending that is your resource for homes purchased from an individual or a home listed on our VMFhomes.com inventory. Connect Lending specializes in financing for pre-owned manufactured and modular homes. If you’re interested in originating a loan for a new home manufactured or modular home instead, that’s also an option. Reach out to us online for help to find the right home loan for you, or give us a call at 1-866-701-0467. Let’s learn about one of the loans within Connect Lending.

Direct Loan

This is a unique financing option. A Direct Loan allows you to finance the purchase of a pre-owned manufactured or modular home without a retailer. This is a loan program for individual-to-individual sales. Your mortgage will still be through Vanderbilt, and you’ll fill out the same application, with just a few variations. Check out more below on how we can potentially finance your home purchase.

What can be financed with a Direct Loan (Pre-owned):

  • Manufactured/mobile and modular homes in livable condition
  • Land and home packages (where home is already set up on land) or the home only sold by individuals (Real Estate Agents are permitted if the home is titled to the individual owner/seller.)

What can’t be financed with a Direct Loan:

  • Homes owned by dealerships, communities or any business
  • Homes owned/being sold by banks (excludes liens with another lender where title is in owner/individual’s name)

  • A current customer wants to remove or add someone on the loan. (Some restrictions apply)
