Flex Quick Tip

New Architecture Detail Field Added to FlexMLS

A new search detail - 'Manufactured' - has been added to the Single Family property type. To be listed in the MLS, the manufactured home must be on a concrete slab, crawl space or basement and have a tax key.

Metro MLS does not allow manufactured homes with no land to be entered into the MLS as this would be considered a personal property sale.

Manufactured home guideline:

A manufactured home for which the sections (one or more) are built in a factory and transported to the building site for assembly. Each section is marked with a red metal label which is attached to the rear exterior siding. A steel chassis can be found under each section. This steel chassis may be exposed or may be embedded inside a truss system. Most often placed either on a crawl space or full basement. When manufactured, a data plate is affixed inside the home on or near the main electrical breaker box and is printed on paper or foil stock. This document will include the manufacturer’s name, trade/model name, year of manufacture, serial number, HUD construction code label, and HUD construction zone. Unfortunately, when dealing with resale you may find that this document has been removed.

A manufactured home is also referred to as a mobile home or trailer. Completely built and assembled within a factory rather than on site. Mobile homes and trailers must have a tax key to be listed in the MLS.
