If you cannot establish if the subject is a doublewide home or a modular home how can you complete appraisal
The home was originally either a doublewide home or a modular on chassis home. It has been placed on a permanent foundation of concrete block basement with an addition, new roof and new siding. There were no tags or label on the home, no one including prior owners have any information on any tags or label or serial number, no prior appraisal available. No number was visible, as it is now completed, on the front crossbeam. There is no access to any attic space or roof trusses to look for building code it was built to. There were no tags or serial numbers on electric box. The assessor office cannot be relied upon as they originally had it as a modular and now list it as a stick built home. Although it is poorly constructed, with all the typical indications that it is a lower end doublewide, I cannot assume that, as it could be an onchassis lower end modular. The metal chassis can be seen from basement as well as wood structure for partitions in basement. Can it be completed with the extraordinary assumption that it is a manufactured home?
