Should I Purchase a Sectional Home?
Are you considering a manufactured home? If you’re looking at your options so that you can make an informed decision about buying a manufactured home vs. a site-built home, you’re probably wondering about home sizes. Do you need a sectional (or double-wide) home or will a standard single-wide mobile home suffice?
In essence, a manufactured home can be built in a variety of sizes, making it a great option for not only those looking at a starter home or a downsized home, but also for those who want family-sized homes and plenty of space to stretch out, entertain, as well as have room for storage.
Single wide homes tend to be eighteen feet wide or less. Sectional homes often exceed 1400 square feet of living space. If you have a larger family or want more space, there are some great sectional mobile homes for sale in Michigan with plenty of room for a growing family without the price tag of a higher-priced site-built home.
Manufactured Homes Can be Large and Spacious Homes
Many people who buy a manufactured home say that those who visit their new home for the first time are surprised at the amount of space the home offers. Contrary to popular belief, these homes don’t have to feel small and cramped and you also do not have to sacrifice luxury finishes in order to live in one. And in fact, in many cases, they are designed to offer optimum storage and convenience, with the benefit of having your entire living space on one single level. If you are someone who believes you need an extra large home, sectional manufactured homes for sale provide as much space as most people could need, with options that exceed 2000 square feet of living space.
Single-Wide or Double-Wide Homes?
If you are reviewing options for both single and double-wide homes, Michigan offers a variety of each. You may or may not require a sectional home, so why not review both options? You can easily check out a variety of floor plans so that you can compare prices, size, and layout.
If you are concerned that you cannot afford a sectional home, but need plenty of space, there are some innovative configurations available that offer plenty of living space, even for medium-sized families.
Sectional Manufactured Homes for Bigger Families
Those with larger families, an extra-large lot, or with significant storage requirements will still find that when it comes to sectional or double-wide homes, Michigan manufactured home options are abundant.
A sectional home is shipped in two pieces and assembled with what is known as a marriage line on the designated property. Today’s options are designed to look seamless, and in many cases the exterior look and the interior layout resemble a standard site-built home. In these cases, you can look forward to larger living spaces, bigger bedrooms, more storage, live-in kitchens, and in some cases extra bathrooms or other amenities, but without a higher price tag that’s associated with buying a site-built house.
Whether you have decided on buying a Michigan manufactured home or you are still reviewing options between site-built homes and double-wide homes for sale in Michigan, you will, without a doubt, be pleasantly surprised at both the finishing touches available and the significantly lower price tag on homes in a variety of styles and sizes.
New and newer manufactured homes can also carry MMHI Standards (Model Manufactured Home Installation) standards, enabling qualification for loans, which could make them even more accessible and affordable as an option for you to be able to stop renting and get into a sectional home of your own.
