If you’re buying your first property, you could consider purchasing a manufactured home. There are lots of great advantages to choosing this type of home, making them a favorite buy for people from many backgrounds.
Manufactured, or mobile homes, are prefabricated houses that are constructed in factories and then transported to the residential estate where it will be occupied. They can be single-wide (narrower but long) or double-wide (shorter but wider), and the buyer can choose a style that suits them.
Manufactured Homes are Affordable
The high price tag of traditional family homes and the ‘credit crunch’ has prevented many potential first-time buyers from entering the housing market, leading more people to stay with their parents or rent. Choosing a manufactured home could get your foot onto the housing ladder. The average cost of a single-family home is $272,200, whereas a prefabricated home costs an average $62,600, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
You Can Design Your Home
Prefabricated homes come in a variety of designs, and you can choose your floor plan and number of bedrooms, how many storeys and whether you have a garage, according to your budget. If you’ve always wanted a home cinema room or even a swimming pool, by investing in a mobile home, you can essentially build your dream property.
Manufactured Homes are Eco-Friendly
Mobile homes have less impact on the environment. Some companies build eco-friendly mobile homes using green building materials. ‘Green’ options could include solar panelling, low flow faucets, energy efficient appliances, rainwater harvesting and insulation to keep the heat in during the winter.
You Can Choose Your Plot of Land
You may be able to choose from a variety of different plots of land for your home to be placed on so you can create your lawns or add a fruit and vegetable garden. Just search your local area to see the plots that are available. Customers can buy single-wide homes (Louisiana) and plots from manufactured home realtors like Lane Thomas Housing, or if you’d like a different area or size, just enter your requirements into the search engine.
You Can Move In Sooner
Mobile, modular housing is much faster to assemble than a brick house. Your home could be completed in only a couple of weeks, compared to the 7 to 11 months it takes to build a traditional house.
