I am a loan officer that specializes in manufactured home financing. I have found is that most sellers of manufactured homes in parks do very little advertising. I have begun advertising many of these houses, in the hopes of producing loans out of them. So far it has worked well enough to continue. If I am bringing a buyer to the seller, I feel that it is only fair to charge a commission (or finders fee) to the seller. I know I don’t need a realtors license to do this, as we are dealing with personal property, rather that real estate. Some people have told me that I need a dealers license to do this, but that doesn’t seem right either, because I am not the seller of the house. I am merely connecting buyer and seller.
Can anyone provide me with the answer to my dilemma, or point me in the right direction?
