Manufactured Housing — Perfect for Millennials!
Starting a new life in a new neighborhood always harbors questions . Who will your neighbors be? What is the community like? With the growing market for manufactured housing, those questions exist in communities like HomeFirst as well, but we make it easy to help you find a community that suits you and your family in the best way. Whether you’re looking for a house as a place to retire, or a space to raise a family, HomeFirst™ communities can help you find what you’re looking for.
The Michigan real estate economy is showing an increase in Millennials, buyers in their 20s to 30s, who are looking to become homeowners. Furthermore, of those Millennial first-time home buyers, many are beginning to turn to manufactured housing. Recent studies have shown that Millennials are starting to make factory-built homes a permanent part of their home ownership experience, and faster than any other generation before. Unlike other generations, Millennials are more likely to have watched their parents struggle to make house payments during the recession and don’t ever want to find themselves in the same position. Since manufactured housing is so affordable, many Millennials see it as a perfect solution.
Manufactured housing offers alternatives to the high cost of traditional mortgages and rental rates, while still offering a space that is comfortable and large enough to raise a family. In fact, according to the Michigan Manufactured Housing Association, the average sales price for a factory-built house is just over $30,000, making it a housing option even more affordable than most apartments. Manufactured homes come in a variety of sizes and many of the homes you’ll find in our HomeFirst™ communities have 3 or 4 bedrooms. Even if you were able to find an apartment with 3 or 4 bedrooms, it would most likely be terribly expensive.
If you’re looking for a place to live while continuing your education, you’ll be glad to know many of our HomeFirst™ communities are located near some of the top colleges, universities, and community colleges in the state. For example, our Augusta Woods community is located just a short drive away from both Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti, right in the neighborhood for Eastern Michigan University and the University of Michigan, while Independence Commons is just outside of Lansing, home of Michigan State University.
With affordable spaces and luxurious neighborhoods, HomeFirst™ can give you and your family the best that the Michigan manufactured housing market has to offer. Our friendly communities and beautiful homes are the perfect place to settle down and start a family. With private fitness centers, heated pools, playgrounds, and more, all located right within the community, your family can always stay active, both in lifestyle and with other HomeFirst buyers around you.
