With the ever increasing costs of housing, many buyers are considering Manufactured Homes. These are homes made in a factory by a stable, experienced workforce and shipped to the home site, assembled and connected to local utilities. They can be placed in Community Parks or on land owned by the homebuyer. Due to being factory made they are 10-20% less/sqft than "stick built" homes, but allow for complete customization of all aspects: styles, colors, appliance brands, etc. It is not unusual to find homes in excess of 1400 sqft with 8-9 ft ceilings, 2-3 bedrooms, porches, laundry rooms and full kitchens with granite counters etc. Visit our web page Manufactured Homes for more information about lenders, making an offer, types of parks, etc.
NOTE: New homes are considered "personal property" and real estate agents are not licensed to sell them, but if they are placed on a site and not "mobile" they are considered real property so real estate agents are licensed to sell them
