IRMLS DEFINITION MOBILE, MANUFACTURED AND MODULAR HOMES amended 7/21/15
These terms are frequently misunderstood. The following definitions are intended to help users understand the differences in the terms. Mobile/Manufactured Homes do not qualify for inclusion in the MLS because they are taxed as personal property by the State of Indiana. The MLS is for the sale/lease of real property only. The Mobile/Manufactured home can be included in the MLS if the land the mobile/Manufactured sits on is for sale.  read more...
