Why Manufactured Homes are More Important Than Ever
When you’re looking for a new home, there are a lot of things every person will look for, such as location, size, and features of the home. But more than any other one factor, the price of a home can be the biggest deal breaker house hunters deal with. If a home is simply way out of your price range, it’s pretty unlikely that any amount of negotiation will be able to bring the price down enough to make it truly affordable for you and your only choice is to keep on looking.
But what if you’re in the position where it seems like virtually all the homes you look at are out of your price range? If you aren’t able to rent a home, you might think that renting would be a better choice, but the price of rent is often prohibitively expensive for many people, too. This happens to more people than you might realize!
For many people, rising housing costs are one of the biggest financial burdens they face on a regular basis. With a growing population of retired baby boomers, many experts are concerned that the country isn’t adequately prepared to handle the growing demand for affordable housing that they’ll need. But it’s not only seniors who are feeling the pinch of rising housing costs. Millennials also tend to love the idea of owning a home, but rising home prices and rental costs make it hard for them to save up enough money. Lots of people in between those age groups are still struggling to find places to live because of damaged credit scores they ended up with during the recession.
These sorts of situations are precisely why manufactured homes are so important. With so many people being priced out of being able to own or rent a home, manufactured housing offers a very important solution. Manufactured homes are the largest type of unsubsidized affordable housing in the United States. At HomeFirst™, we believe that everyone deserves to have access to safe, affordable, high quality housing and that’s precisely what you get with manufactured homes. The homes you’ll find in our communities are spacious enough to provide you with all the space you and your family need, but for a fraction of the price of a site-built home of comparable size.
Manufactured homes are much less expensive to build than other types of homes, making them considerably more attainable for people of all income levels. You don’t have to be on a low or fixed income to appreciate the great value of a manufactured home. After so many people got burned when the housing market collapsed a few years ago, many people of all income levels began to appreciate how affordable manufactured homes are because they don’t want to risk finding themselves in that position ever again.
Even if you have a damaged credit score, manufactured homes are still an option for you! When you buy a manufactured home in a HomeFirst™ community, a sales associate will work with you to work out a financing plan for you. Owning a manufactured home can even help improve your credit score, making it an even better option for you.
