The opportunity is to lend for ten years on a portfolio of new manufactured homes, yielding unleveraged returns of nine percent (9.0%) with payments of principal and interest paid monthly.
Each of the houses has a qualified, thoroughly underwritten leaseholder tenant that has made a significant payment for an option to purchase the home at the end of the eleventh year of their lease for a set price.
Manufactured homes, like automobiles, are classified and titled as chattel or personal property. Just as lenders have been offering a lease-to-purchase option agreement on autos, Southern Alliance Homes LLC (SAH) is offering similar lease-to-purchase financing for manufactured home buyers.
Due to industry experience, connections and volume purchasing power, each new single-section home fully installed on a lot cost about $48,000 on average and each new double-section unit fully installed cost on average $61,000. The retail value of these homes is fifteen to twenty percent higher than our costs, since we are buying direct from the factory and are not marking-up the cost of the home.
This provides additional security protection for the Lender on the homes. New residents to the community make an up-front option payment on their home ranging from 8% to 15% of the cost of the home, with the standard amount being 10%. This option payment creates a financial commitment by the Tenant/Leaseholder in their new home and is the first step towards home ownership.
With our established lease to purchase home program, we can deliver benefits to the manufactured home community owner and the home lender investor:
