I received an FHA/sale appraisal order for a small home in a PUD with pool, tennis etc. in an area of stick-built non-PUD homes on mostly 1 acre properties. I noticed right away when I pulled up the tax record that the county use code was "manufactured home." Not trusting any of this I called the County zoning dept who informed me that the zoning is Rural Mobile Home (maybe once rural, but not no mo!). I went to inspect the property since all comps in the development were listed on the MLS as detached SFR's and since the photos showed homes that didn't look anything like mobile homes. I was lucky enough to discover a neighbor who had lived there from the time the homes were built. He informed me that they were delivered to the site in 2 halves and assembled on site. In other words, modular homes. I have never appraised a modular home, since they are rare in my area (I get maybe one request a year and they are usually way out in the sticks). I informed the loan officer and sales agent, neither of whom even knew they were modular since it's not all that obvious by looking at it. I'm not sure if this should be done on a 1004 or 1004-C. If it's the "C" I will need to either turn it over to someone else or get assistance. I asked the LO to check with her FHA sources. I didn't see any HUD plates anywhere and I'm not even sure that these exist for modular. Help! I'm a city dude and ignorant of this odd ball! Thanks!
