Manufactured Homes — An Affordable Option for Everyone!
Manufactured housing is famous for being an incredibly affordable housing option. In fact, manufactured housing is one of the largest sources of non-subsidized housing in the country. Homeownership is still a major part of the American dream and manufactured housing puts that dream within reach for millions of Americans who thought it would never be possible for them. It’s also an important resource for seniors on a fixed income who might be looking for ways to downsize and beat rising housing costs.
Here at HomeFirst™, we hear from a lot of people who are interested in manufactured homes, but think they’d never be able to own one because they don’t make enough money or have damaged credit. But the reality is that yes, even in situations like those, it could be possible for you to own a manufactured home! In fact, you might even end up discovering you can afford a more spacious home than you ever imagined possible!
Not only do manufactured homes in general cost much less than a stick-built home, if you buy a home in a manufactured community, the community might have special offers to help make it even more affordable to live there. At HomeFirst™, we always have special offers going for new residents, such as our referral program, our down payment matching program, and our Home Town Heroes program, which provides a discount on site rent for a year to teachers, nurses and doctors, firefighters, police officers, veterans and active military members.
As an added bonus, buying a home in a HomeFirst™ manufactured housing community means you’ll have access to amenities that will make you feel like you’re living in a resort! Imagine being able to spend a hot summer afternoon by the swimming pool or being able to watch your kids have fun playing on the community basketball court with other kids in the community. Those are the types of features many owners of traditional stick-built houses wish they could have, but they’re just too expensive.
Owning a manufactured home can even help you improve damaged credit because making monthly home payments on time will be reflected favorably on your credit score. And if you choose to live in a HomeFirst™ community, you’ll have access to free financial counseling from GreenPath Debt Solutions so you’ll be able to get any financial advice you might need.
