CAS stands for Community Attributes System. The CAS consists of community attribute information including:
The primary purpose of the CAS is to provide lenders and appraisers a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to view the attributes of the manufactured housing communities where homes are being sited in order to improve lending on homes in these communities. The system is designed to gather and record a set of uniform and objective information about communities with no attempt to score, rate, categorize, or classify communities in any way. A goal of the system is to eliminate the subjective patchwork of systems currently being employed throughout the industry. The CAS database is available to approved lenders, appraisers, and members of MHI and state manufactured housing associations.
