Mention the words manufactured home (also known as mobile homes, although today the industry vastly prefers the term manufactured home) and many people’s thoughts aren’t positive. They have been dogged for years with a stigma of being poorly built and maintained and so-called “trailer parks” have traditionally been looked down upon by communities. The good news is that that reputation isn’t earned and not at all accurate. Today’s manufactured homes are stylish, well-built and and all around great value. Read on to learn more about the benefits of today’s manufactured homes.
Manufactured homes are far more affordable than traditional homes. This affordability doesn’t require a sacrifice in quality or location. Your home can be delivered to any property you have ready for it, 90% complete and ready to move into. Since they are transportable, it gives you amazing flexibility in where you’d like to live. High quality construction like that found in Solitaire homes means they will look great for many many years to come, and unlike traditional construction, which can take a year or more, they can be built in 1/3 of the time!
Manufactured homes are made in factories, under tightly controlled and monitored conditions. This allows for the absolute best construction, and your home will pass a rigorous inspection before being delivered to you. Just like traditional homes, these homes must meet municipal or county building codes, and built with that in mind. These homes also offer a wide variety of floor plans in both single and double wide models. Did you know you can have as many as 5 bedrooms, multilevel, a deck and even a garage? Today’s manufactured homes are as spacious and luxurious as any upscale traditional home. They’re also built to be as energy efficient as possible, which will save you even more money.
A manufactured home doesn’t lack any of the luxurious amenities you might expect. Hot tubs, fireplaces, walk-in closets and sunken tubs are just some of the options available. If you don’t own private property to put it on, that’s okay too. Today’s manufactured home communities are safe, beautiful and like any other community, trash collection and snow plowing are taken care of for you. In some cases, lawn maintenance is too. Some are like mini-resorts with golf courses, fitness centers and walking trails-and the best part? Just like a traditional home your manufactured home can and most likely will increase in value over the years.
