How is the Market for Luxury Features in Mobile Homes in 2022?

As the cost of living continues to rise, the need for affordable factory-built housing has risen. So, too, has their popularity with Americans all over the country. 

In fact, the desire for manufactured homes that offer upgradable luxury features, offering the same first-class perks as a site-built home that can be out of reach for the majority of Americans, is seeing a jump. But what are mobile homes with luxury features, exactly, and how are they a suitable alternative to similar suite-built homes? 

Let the MHVillager walk you through it: 

What are Luxury Features in Mobile Homes? 

Mobile homes that have luxury features, like all manufactured homes, are built in a factory and then transported to the home site. 

These mobile homes have modern upgrades, state-of-the-art appliances, and elegant, upscaled finishes that make a mobile home, well, luxurious. Some upgradable luxury features include: 

  • Marble or quartz countertops
  • Stainless steel, internet-enabled appliances
  • Extra kitchen storage, including a kitchen island 
  • Higher ceilings
  • Open floor plans
  • Spacious closets
  • Lush, high-quality carpeting or hardwood flooring
  • First-class bathroom materials, including large spa-style tubs

Keep in mind that what might be a luxury feature to you, might not be one to someone else, So, consider what upgrades are most important to you when considering which option to choose with your mobile home purchase. 

Can I Buy Mobile Homes With Luxurious Features in 2022? 

Yes! In fact, the market for mobile homes with luxury features in 2022 is quite strong. 

This is, in part, due to increasing demand for factory-built manufactured homes across the board over the past several years. Because manufactured homes offer cost savings thanks to their cost-efficient, factory-built nature, they’re seen as an affordable option by millions of Americans for attaining the dream of homeownership. 

So, manufactured homes that offer luxury features in turn have also seen an uptick in interest. When you have luxury features like the ones we mentioned above at a lower cost than having similar features in a site-built home, it’s easy to see why they’re so in demand. 

Are These Homes Found in Communities? 

Before we answer this question, it’s important to remember that not all mobile homes will have the same upgradable add-ons. In fact, if you put two homes side-by-side, they may look quite different. Not all manufactured homes with luxury features will have high ceilings that are the same height, or the same types of countertops. 

That said, you may find some manufactured home communities that have homes with luxury features. For example, some communities may have open homes that have larger floor plans. 

If you already own a mobile home with modern features and want to move it into a community, you could contact that community to see if they have any open lots to move your home to. In fact, you can filter your mobile home park search on MHVillage to show parks in your area that have available lots. 

What About Private Land?

If you buy a mobile home new from the manufacturer or dealer, more than likely you can have it placed on your own land. 

In fact, this is one of the reasons why new mobile homes on private land are more common than those in communities. 

We wrote recently about the logistics of buying both a mobile home and land, whether it be together or separately. This mostly holds true for mobile homes as well. 

If living space, indoors and outdoors, is a major consideration for you when buying a mobile home, then private land may be the way to go. This is because you could buy a plot of land that’s as large as you want, widening your potential for expanding your manufactured home. So, if you wanted to add a deck, you could do exactly that. 

What’s My Next Step? 

Many manufacturers offer mobile homes with upgradable luxury add-ons directly. If you have a specific manufacturer in mind, you could contact them to see what’s available. 

Or, you can check out MHVillage’s Manufactured and Mobile Home Dealers page to look for dealers near you. Here, you can look for dealers near you that can help you throughout the mobile home buying process, including for mobile homes with luxury features if they have them in stock.
