Appraising manufactured homes has its challenges. This new training course helps address them.
A new generation of high-quality, factory-built homes is providing a popular alternative in affordable housing to millions of Americans. And Freddie Mac is making financing certain manufactured homes possible through its CHOICEHomeSM program. The program will also make it easier for appraisers to value manufactured homes by allowing valuation professionals the use of site-built homes as comparable sales where there is no CHOICEHome sales available to compare.

- Identify the multiple types of factory-built housing

Freddie Mac and the Appraisal Institute will offer more than 60 educational opportunities in classroom settings in nearly 30 states (including our initial courses listed above) through November; online classes also will be offered.
