There are plenty of good reasons to refinance. I will explain some of the most common reasons and also provide some useful advice on what you need to consider before refinancing your mobile home.
Why consider a manufactured home refinance? When you refinance your manufactured home, you are basically getting a new loan, usually with better terms, to pay off or replace the loan you currently have. While the mobile home refinance loan process is quite different than a real property stick built refinance, financing for manufactured homes is available in space rent parks, co-op parks, parks where you own your own lot, and mobile homes or manufactured homes located on privately owned land. In no particular order , here are the Top Four Reasons to refinance your Mobile Home:
1. For a fixed rate loan, to provide stability 2 . To access home equity for home improvements

The third reason behind refinancing a mobile home is to lower your current interest rate and monthly mortgage payment. Now this may seem simple; who doesn't want lower payments? But even if you are currently in a situation where you can afford your monthly payments, then refinancing your mobile home loan with a lower interest rate may allow you to shorten the length of your loan, pay it off sooner, and easily make additional principal payments towards the principal balance of your loan from time to time, if you so desire, to pay the loan off even sooner.
Now let's review the fourth reason that mobile home owners have for refinancing; consolidating debt, paying off high interest rate credit cards and auto loans. Taking cash out of your home to pay off debts that have high interest rates and non-deductible interest costs is a very popular reason behind refinancing mobile home and manufactured home loans.
