Never heard of loans for these types.  These are pretty new and not in my area.  The first two will never be allowed out here for sure.

Interesting question. Your best arena will probably be a portfolio lender!

You will find the needed lenders by networking in your area. Private financing is sometimes the best option.

Mostly regional or very local small town banks, but they generally will require larger down payments and stellar credit.  Plenty of options for geodesic/farm/log cabin type homes, but they're all beyond the reach of the greater secondary markets.

It may depend on your area and the lenders who lend in your area.  Perhaps a discussion with an appropriate mortgage broker may assist.

That is a great question, Dan. I had no experience with financing a shipping container home or log cabin, etc. But since mobile houses and coops require special financing, I believe it can be the same for non traditional properties as well.

Best to have some equity in something more marketable, the resale value on these, other than the log homes, is generally not good.

Some may need construction loans, land loan first.  Energy efficient loans like HERO and PACE are not great tools. Usually they find the lot first, figure out utilities then shop for a kit, prefab or log or ... the stranger they go as in single wide container box adapted to living shelter the more expensive the loan

I am certainly far from well-versed on the topic, but perhaps some of the hard money lenders are willing to assume these risks? There are always people that are looking to find a niche. I imagine any type of financing for these properties would be contingent upon a fairly high down payment.
