In the News
AFR President Laura Brandao as quoted in this article, “At AFR, we’ve seen an increase of more than 10% in loan volume specifically for manufactured homes, year over year, for the last two years,” said President Laura Brandao in an email.
American Financial Resources on Tuesday announced it added conventional financing for a particularly small and affordable type of manufactured home that could be used to help address inventory shortages in the market. As one of the few mortgage firms that finances singlewides, AFR’s decision to offer the product will lend momentum to major government-sponsored loan buyers’ efforts to expand their manufactured housing programs.
