Why Invest in Mobile Homes Part 2 of 2


Today’s manufactured homes come with many "standard" features that you would find in a site-built home. Many floor plans are available that range from the basic models to more elaborate designs with living and dining rooms with vaulted ceilings, fully-equipped modern kitchens, comfortable bedrooms with walk-in closets, and bathrooms with recessed bathtubs and whirlpools.

Visit the Photo Gallery to view some manufactured home interiors.

You may also select from a variety of exterior designs, including metallic, vinyl, wood, or hardboard. You also may select such design features as a bay window, a gable front, or a pitched roof with shingles. Awnings, enclosures around the crawl space, patio covers, decks, and steps are also available at additional costs.

With many manufacturers now using the latest in computer-assisted design, you have the flexibility of selecting variations to the floor plans and decors, including the color and thickness of the carpeting. These options can include everything from the type of exterior siding materials to energy-efficiency features to kitchen appliance upgrades.

Also Consider:

• 20% of all new homes in the US were manufactured
• Average cost of manufactured home was $43,600
• There is a lower upfront investment
• There is less competition in mobile homes
• They can be in high demand
• Lower repair costs
• They have excellent long term cash flow strategies

In my opinion, the key attraction of getting a new mobile home is the speed in which it can be situated on a lot and moved into. This can be done in just a few days, whereas a new house usually takes several weeks at a minimum. This is an advantage to someone who needs a place to live and they need it now!

However, most buyers of new mobile homes get them to live in, not as an investment - probably for the reasons stated elsewhere in this site.
