Using online articles, banner ads and video, Mountainside Financial is announcing the launch of the evolution of their direct lending platform promotion. As a division of San Antonio Credit Union (SACU), Mountainside has a unique 14 year history of making direct to consumer loans on manufactured and mobile homes. Direct loans are often done in "partnership" with brokers, communities, Realtors ®, other housing professionals and manufactured home retailers.

status-update-notifaction-sun-system-mountainside-financial-direct-consumer-manufactured-mobile-home-lender-manufacturedhomelivingnews-

Anthony Ducharme, Direct Channel Manager for Mountainside, explained how they created their new SUN System with Manufactured Home Professionals in mind who needed a compliant process to navigate SAFE Act and Dodd-Frank regulations enforced by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

"If you've been originating your own loans, talk to us. If you want to have a legally complaint system that a customer can use, give us a call. If you have a resident that needs to save on their manufactured home loan, please consider us as an option," Anthony Ducharme said.

Ducharme explained their SUN System in a special report, linked here.

Ducharme did a video interview - Inside MH - featured on Manufactured Home Living News, linked here.

ARA's National Manufactured Housing Group specializes in the disposition of family and age-restricted manufactured housing and recreational vehicle investment properties across the country. Misunderstood and overlooked just a few years ago, this asset class has grown into a mainstream investment product for ARA's private and institutional clients. Since this form of housing is typically the most reasonably priced for residents, with very low turnover and expense ratios, the sector arguably provides the most stable cash flow of any multi housing investment product. Also, these assets tend to provide a yield that is favorable when compared to conventional multifamily product in any given market.

In order to adjust to the changing needs of our clients, ARA responded by creating a focused, experienced platform to provide representation in this market.
