my builders occasionally use a manufactured home, but more often than not, our area builders are stick builders....

I market to stick builders using land as the incentive to call me...and they do...all builders want land.... manufactured home builders also need land!!!

if I were you, I'd contact the manufactured home builders and ask if they have room on their plate for more land... of course they do... and then I'd proceed to inform them that you have agents who market for land and you will set them up if they would consider using your company for financing.... one good turn deserves another....

the next step is to speak with your closest real estate agent allies and cut a deal with them... you can buy a database of names and addressses of land owners in any town on experian.... the credit reporting company....

the agents market for land and they state they do not charge a commission on the land... when the call come into the agent, you then contact your home builder and have him/her sign an agreement saying you will get the financing and your agent will get the listings if the land deal is consummated.... of course, you have an attorney do that paperwork...

everyone wins...everyone...  those are my thoughts.... 

the key to making the phone ring for land is to NOT charge a commission on the land.... that should also be relayed to the home builder.... tell that builder you don't mucky the waters with a higher price for him to pay!!!

remember, this stuff I share works.... I've listed 40 subdivisions... and I continue to market for land this way...

this should have been a post!!!!!!!!!  so sorry Khash....

In Oregon we sell manufactured homes on land, but those new or on leased land require a special license which typical agents do not have.

Hi Khash Saghafi,
You are asking some very important questions and I will try to answer them for you as clearly as possible:
"I am not sure if I am asking this question correctly. For example, DR Horton, Pulte and Toll Brothers are national home builders and some agents work for those builders."
I can only speak for California inasmuch as each State has their own Manufactured Housing Regulations and Laws. In Cali you need a Manufacturered Home Salesperson or Dealers license to deal in new manufactured homes that have never been sold. However, if its a resale it can be listed and sold by a licensed real estate agent/broker as well as a MH dealer and/or salesperson. 
Example: If a MH Dealer were to purchase a new home from a manufacturer and place it on a space in a rent/lease manufactured home park community as a brand new, never sold home it could only be sold by a licensed MH Dealer or Salesperson. However, if it's a resale then it can be listed and sold by a licenesd RE broker/agent as well.
However, if it's on a private resident owned lot/parcel or resident owned MH park community, condo conversion, sub division or PUD then it can only be sold by a licensed RE broker/agent if the MH dealer/salesperson is not licensed as a RE broker/agent as well.
"Are there agents who work for manufactured home builders and if there are, is there any particular way to go about finding them and talking to them??"
In Cali, once again you need to have a MH dealer/salesperson's licenes to sell MH's. MH retail dealers purchase directly from a factory and sell them to an end user. If the end user is a RE developer they need to have a MH dealers license as well in order to resell the home and land as a package.
Some MH developers like our company have all the above. We happen to have a general & manufactured home State contractors license and are also a MH Dealer and RE broker just for that reason. As such we can offer a one stop, turnkey solution and avoid a lot of extra steps.
Hope this helps. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions or concerns. However, once again my knowledge is limited to California. You may want to reach out to a manufacturer and/or MH dealer to see what the laws are in your State.

Not in our area Khash Saghafi . We don't work together at all. They have their own sales teams. That being said I've sold land to both private parties and developers who have placed manufactured homes on the land BUT both sales were kept separate.

No doubt there are agents that do. Manufactured homes are not in my area of experience.  You have some good suggestions here.  I wish you all the best.

We don't have many of those in the N. Virginia area and so the answer in my case is I have never worked with a Manufactured builder at least not yet
