Manufactured Housing: Know the Facts
As you are searching for a place to live, you may have heard a thing or two from friends, family, or even colleagues about manufactured housing. Like any information passed by word of mouth, there’s a possibility it’s false. Let HomeFirst™ help set the facts straight about manufactured housing.
Manufactured Homes Aren’t Mobile
Many people are under the mistaken impression that manufactured homes are “mobile homes.” The term “mobile home” simply doesn’t make much sense. Once a manufactured home is placed on its original site, odds are, it’s not going anywhere else. It is possible for a manufactured home to be relocated, but the vast majority of all manufactured homes stay on their original site.
Manufactured Homes Are Strong
Manufactured homes are very sturdy, built to the standards set forth by the HUD code, a performance-based construction and safety standard. Since manufactured homes are built in factories, they have the advantage of being inspected multiple times throughout the building process. And because they need to be transported from the factory to their site, manufactured homes are built with extra secure construction to be able to withstand the transportation process. When you move into a manufactured home, you know you’ll be getting a home that will last for decades to come.
You Can Get Financing for Manufactured Homes
Not only are manufactured homes an extremely affordable housing option, it is entirely possible to get financing for them. When you purchase a manufactured home in a HomeFirst™ community, one of our associates will work with you to figure out which financing options are available to you.
Manufactured Homes Are Customizable
Manufactured homes are hardly a “one size fits all” type of housing. Take a look around any HomeFirst™ community and you’ll see a wide variety of homes, ranging in size, style, and price! You’ll sure to find a place that fits your style and your budget.
If you decide to order a brand new home from the factory, you’ll have the option to fully customize your home so it will look exactly the way you want it to when you move in. Even if you don’t buy a brand new home, you are free to make any additions and interior tweaks to your new home as you see fit! Your home may be built in a factory, but it can easily be one of a kind!
