If you have a manufactured home, you may want to know if you can change how it is classified so it will be considered real estate and a house. This would require filling out the appropriate form with your state's revenue office. You will have to provide proof that you meet the requirements. The process for doing this is lengthy, but it is not particularly complicated. The details of the process will vary somewhat from one place to the next, but in general you have to take a series of actions to give the home "permanence."

Release the title of the manufactured home to the state's DMV office.
