If you are new to the manufactured housing world, you might be unfamiliar with some specific home options available. Finding a mobile home with land, for instance, is a popular option for home owners for a few different reasons.
How do you get started finding a mobile home with land?
First you want to decide on the environment that interests you.
Are you looking to buy land within a community? Some communities have an option where you can purchase the lot and move a home in. Some communities also offer home and land combinations for homes currently available. This situation typically still requires a monthly fee of sorts to either the management company or a home owners association (HOA). The monthly fee would normally cover any amenities provided like lawn care, trash, etc.
If you are looking for a more secluded environment, the option to purchase private land first and then site your new mobile home might be for you.
“The big difference is that you are placing a manufactured home on the property that is equal or superior to a site built, in every respect, and will cost you 20 to 30% less than that site built.”
– By Ben Nelms -Manufactured Homes.com
This option, however, does require research on your local and state regulations and requirements. Some areas require specific permits when it comes to everything from the construction and build aspects of a home to setting up sewage, water and electric. There are also specific steps you would need to take for the foundation since there are multiple options available.
What if I want to purchase private land that already has a home sited?
This can be a great option if you don’t want to go through the hassle of siting a home, or if you are on a time restraint.
Often times local Home Retailers and Dealers will offer Home and Land options. This lets you pick the home you want from their inventory and then they assist with the entire process.
