Enjoy Financial Freedom by Living in a Manufactured Home
There’s an old adage everybody has heard at least once in their lives: you can’t have your cake and eat it, too. When you’re in the process of finding a new place to live, this adage can feel all too true. A home that’s in the perfect location can be too expensive and a home you can afford might be too small. Or for many people, they simply don’t want to be saddled with a 30-year mortgage and would rather be able to spend their money on other things. Especially in the aftermath of the recession, more and more people are reluctant to take on more than they can handle financially.
Living in a manufactured home can be a terrific way to find financial freedom. Since manufactured homes cost significantly less per square foot to build than a conventional site-built house, you might be able to live in a 3-4 bedroom manufactured home complete with walk-in closets and large garden-style bathtubs for less than you’d pay for a 2-bedroom site-built home. You’d have all the room you need and still be have money to put in savings or spend on other things. No matter what age you are or what stage of life you’re in, manufactured housing can help you find the financial freedom you’re looking for.
A young person or young recently married couple just starting out in life might be looking for a way to live in a way that would let them be able to build up a healthy savings account or pay down their student loan debt. Depending on where you’re looking to live, renting an apartment or buying a regular house can be so expensive, it would be hard to make significant progress in reaching your financial goals. Younger people also might not have as much established credit, which can make it hard to rent an apartment or get favorable terms on a mortgage. But owning a manufactured home will let you help build up good credit while you work to build a good financial future for yourself in other ways.
If you have a family with young children, we’re sure it’s hugely important for you to be able to provide a nice home while you save money to send the kids to college, save for retirement, and maybe save for something more fun like a family vacation. Manufactured housing will allow you to do just that. With all the money you’ll be saving by living in such an affordable home, you’ll be better able to spend on your family in other ways whether it’s saving for the future or taking a family vacation you’ll remember for years to come.
As people head into retirement, they often start looking for ways to live more economically and want to have less to worry about. Their kids have moved out and they no longer need a big home with a big yard. They also want to make the money they saved for retirement go as far as possible. Since manufactured homes come in a wide variety of sizes, you can easily find the home that’s exactly the right size for you and not have to worry about paying an unreasonable amount for it.
