Wow, to think that asking about the NADA guide two months ago caused such a firestorm. What a long way we have come here!
THe NADA website does not list mh values. That’s because the NADA Manufactured Housing Appraisal Guide (it’s official name) is designed for the trade only. The info on their site is oriented for the general public.
The NADA guide is avalible at www.nadaguides.com. It’s about $150, with three annual updates. I won’t debate the merits of it, but suffice it to say many successful mh investors use it regularly. Also, if you try to sell a mh note to an institutional investor, they want to know the NADA value of the home secured by the note.
Hope this helps. If not, email me.
