Manufactured Homes Definition Change


NorthstarMLS has revised the definition of what are considered Manufactured Homes on NorthstarMLS. For a complete definition, please refer to this document available on in Resources>Training Library>Add/Edit.

Although many manufactured homes do have a HUD ID#, some do not. The presence of a HUD ID# is no longer required in order for it to be considered a manufactured home on NorthstarMLS. Key elements of the definition include:
  • Primary, original structure built entirely in the factory and constructed to HUD codes.
  • Does not include modular homes built to local codes.
  • Built on a non-removable steel chassis (should be visible underneath).
  • Transported to the building site on their own wheels (may or may not be removed upon installation). Multi-part manufactured units (such as with double-wide) joined at their destination.
  • Must be permanently attached to the land.

If you have any listings that meet this definition, please ensure the “Manufactured Home” field reflects “Yes” regardless of the presence of a HUD ID tag.
