5 Reasons to Avoid Renting an Apartment

If you’re thinking about renting an apartment, think again. While renting an apartment may seem like the right move, the reality is that buying a manufactured home in a HomeFirstTM Manufactured Community is a much better option in every sense. Here are 5 reasons you should avoid renting an apartment:

Financial Security

When you rent an apartment, you’re getting a sturdy roof over your head. But what else? There are no financial advantages to renting an apartment. All you’re doing is lining the pockets of your landlord with your hard-earned money. When you buy a manufactured home, you’re investing in something that’s yours – something that can actually increase your wealth over time.


Sure, you can furnish an apartment with nice furniture. But other than that, you’re very restricted as far as personalizing your apartment. Painting, changing countertops, even hanging pictures could all be in violation of your lease agreement. When you own your home, you have no one looking over your shoulder. This gives you the freedom to decorate your home however you please.


Most apartment complexes offer nothing to their tenants other than a living space. When you buy a manufactured home inside a HomeFirstTM Certified Community, you get more than just a beautiful home. Each community features an elegant clubhouse, 24-hour on-site staff and countless recreational facilities. We even plan year-round events and activities for our residents. All of these perks give you much better bang for your buck.

Thin Walls

If you live in an apartment, chances are you share a wall with a neighbor and have been annoyed at some point by noise that’s filtered through the thin barrier. Since you don’t share walls with anyone in a manufactured home, noise pollution should never be a problem.


When you own a home, you also own the property around the home. This means you can plant a garden, host a barbeque and enjoy other leisurely activities in your own backyard. Even if your apartment has a designated outdoor recreation area, it’s public, meaning you can’t enjoy privacy like you would in a manufactured home.
