Is Manufactured Housing Right for Me?
When you’re looking for a new place to live, regardless if it’s an apartment, a site-built home, or a manufactured home, there are a lot of questions you’re going to have. Can I afford it? Is it close to work? Is it located in a good school district? Are there fun things to do in the area? Is it located in a safe neighborhood? Basically, all of these questions can be summed up with one big question: is this home right for me and my family?
The great thing about manufactured housing is that it’s an excellent option for everybody. Regardless of how old you are or what your lifestyle involves, manufactured housing has some amazing benefits to offer.
Because manufactured housing is significantly less expensive than purchasing or renting a site-built home or an apartment, it’s a type of housing that can fit into virtually any budget. Even if you live on a modest income or have damaged credit, HomeFirst™ can work with you to help you move into a high quality home that’s right for you. In fact, many people who could easily afford to live in a site-built home or an apartment choose to live in manufactured homes because they appreciate the amazing value they have to offer. Manufactured homes are very high quality structures that can be extremely modern and stylish-looking, so they see no reason why they should pay more for a regular house or apartment that isn’t as nice.
In fact, manufactured housing can be so affordable that you might even be able to afford to order a brand new home straight from the factory and have it customized to suit your particular style and needs. Imagine moving into a home and having everything just how you want it. You’d have the exact floorplan you want and not have to worry about having to change or replace anything when you move in. That’s a luxury you’d have a hard time finding with a site-built home!
When you live in a HomeFirst™ manufactured housing community, you’ll find there are lots of benefits to living in a community setting. All of our communities have first class amenities that will have you feeling like you’re living in a country club! Imagine being able to enjoy perks such as swimming pools, fitness rooms, recreational areas, playgrounds, without having to pay anything extra or even leave the community. We strive to make our communities the type of place where everyone knows their neighbors, so we frequently organize events in our community clubhouse so our residents will have a chance to meet their neighbors and make friends within the community. Wouldn’t it be nice to have the kind of neighbor you can have fun with and count on to help you out when you need it?
Speaking of having someone to count on, HomeFirst™ communities also have 24-hour on-site management. If you ever need help with taking care of your home, no matter what time of day it happens, we’re always there to help!
If you have young children to think of, all of our HomeFirst™ communities are located near some excellent schools. In fact, many of them are located by some of the top schools in the state of Michigan! For example, kids our Woodland Ridge community in South Lyon is located in the South Lyon Community School district, which is rated 8 out of 10 on GreatSchools. And children in our Walnut Ridge or English Meadows communities, both located in Jackson, get their education at Jackson Public Schools, which has award-winning teachers and top athletic teams, academic teams, and music programs. Many of our communities are also located in areas that have been rated as some of the safest in Michigan, so you won’t have to worry about high crime rates!
All HomeFirst™ communities are located either right in or very close to some of Michigan’s most exciting cities like Lansing, Jackson, and Holly. No matter which of our communities you decide to call home, you’ll be right in the neighborhood of lots of great places to visit, fun things to do, and lots of job opportunities.
