Why buy a Manufactured (Mobile) home?

Why Manufactured Homes are Great For Retirees

Manufactured homes, sometimes associated with the poor reputation of mobile homes from the past, are actually just as safe, reliable and sturdy as traditional homes. They also happen to be an excellent option for retirement for multiple reasons!

They are less expensive: For many of those retiring nowadays, housing costs are the primary concern. The retiree might be on a fixed income or just might be hoping to obtain equity when downsizing. Some may even purchase a manufactured home as second vacation home! If you don’t want to rent an apartment, purchasing a manufactured home may be a great compromise. Additionally, they sell on average for $48 per square foot. That’s less than half the national average ($101) traditionally-built homes sell for. To put it simply, you get more house for less money!

They are attractive: Modern manufactured homes are designed to be aesthetically pleasing. In fact, many of them look like their traditionally-built counterparts! From vinyl siding to beautiful bay windows to gorgeous landscaping, the option of high end details are just one of the many reasons today’s manufactured homes have curb appeal. The interior of these homes are no different, with options for fireplaces, granite counters, vaulted ceilings and more. Many communities also include lawn maintenance which is perfect for those with limited mobility!

They last: Modern manufactured homes last nearly or just as long as traditionally-constructed homes.

They are environmentally friendly: Because manufactured homes are built inside temperature and humidity controlled facilities rather than outside in the elements, they require less protected and produce less construction waste while being built. This plays a significant factor as to why they are less expensive to build than other types of homes.
