Living in a Duplex vs. Living in a Manufactured Home
These days, people have a wide variety of housing options to choose from. Apartments, condos, home rentals, and more, all compete with each other for residents and families to call them home. One style of dwelling that has become more popular in urban areas is a duplex – generally a home or apartment with separate entrances for two households. And while it might sound like a more convenient or affordable option, you’d be surprised to learn how they stack up to our HomeFirst™ manufactured home communities! Read on to see how they compare:
Manufactured Homes Offer You More Space
The biggest and most immediate concern with duplexes is the fact you’re right next to (either side-to-side or above-and-below) your neighbors. Imagine how noisy and cramped many apartment buildings are – and now imagine that you’re sharing half a house with another family! Noise will always be a concern, and space is at a premium. Manufactured homes will allow you plenty of your own space for your family and everything you need to live comfortably – without ever needing to worry about the “upstairs neighbors”!
Manufactured Homes Offer More Options
Duplexes are often made from similar floor plans, and due to the rules of renting a duplex you’re often not given many options to truly make it your own. When you buy a new manufactured home in a HomeFirst™ community, you get to choose from tons of different floor plans, decorative options, and even included appliances. Being able to make it your own is a big part of truly feeling at home, and HomeFirst™ gives you that chance.
Manufactured Homes Are Often More Affordable
For the limited space and options of most duplexes, the cost tends to be higher simply due to location. Much like apartments, many duplexes are located in expensive urban neighborhoods and areas and are priced accordingly. HomeFirst™ offers the best of both worlds: many of our manufactured home communities are located just outside major urban areas for the convenience of big city living without the price (or space) concerns! HomeFirst™ helps to make the dream of owning your own home a reality more than ever before
As you can see, manufactured homes offer many advantages over duplexes for anyone looking for a place to call their own. But you don’t have to take our word for it – contact HomeFirst™ today to find the perfect manufactured home for you!
