Why should I buy a manufactured home instead of a site-built house?
Consider a manufactured home if you are looking to get the most bang for your buck. Manufactured homes cost 10–35% less than a similar site-built home on average (not including the cost of the
land). Manufactured homes today are regulated and offer features and quality construction at a reasonable price.
What is the difference between a mobile home and a manufactured home?
In short – a home built BEFORE June 15, 1976 is a mobile home and a home built AFTER is a manufactured home. You will see the terms used interchangeably in most cases.
Where can I put a manufactured home?
This is an important question because there are many places that you cannot put a mobile home due to zoning. It is best to check with your local county or permits office and ask them if your land
is zoned for mobile homes or not. If it is not, you can ask how you can have it rezoned, but in some cases, rezoning may not be allowed. You may also look into mobile home parks that are already
zoned for mobile homes and generally have utilities already available at each site.
How can I find Mobile Home Parks in my area?
The easiest thing to do is go to Google Maps and search for Mobile Home Park.
Can I get insurance for my mobile home?
Yes. Many insurance providers offer mobile home insurance.
Can I get financing for my mobile home?
Yes. There are several lenders available for your mobile home purchase. Depending on how you buy your home, you may be able to finance the home with your land as a package, but if you purchase
the home separately from the land, then the home will most likely be financed as personal property. Check out our Financing page to fill out an online application!
