Renting A Mobile Home

Renting a Mobile Home?

Here are the basics!

A common question we receive at MHVillage refers to rental home options. While some might argue that buying is better, here are some benefits to the options of renting a mobile home.


One advantage to renting a mobile home vs buying is the aspect of maintenance. As a home owner you are responsible for major repairs and up-keep. As a home renter you typically would contact the owner of the home to maintain the home and/or the property. This is a great option for individuals seeking a temporary housing option (business) or for a seasonal option, renting a manufactured home can be a great option for vacation depending on it’s location. By renting the home you don’t always have the responsibility of major home repairs.


Whether you are looking to rent a mobile home in a resort style community for retirement or to acquire a second home option for vacations on the waterfront, renting offers flexibility without the commitment of ownership.

Low-Cost/More Options:

Most people think of manufactured housing as a low-cost option for living. This can be especially true if renting a mobile home when you consider the benefits included.

If you rent a home on private land, it can be fairly low in cost since typically you are then paying for the home and sometimes the taxes on the property. However, depending on the location, you privacy as for your rental instead of renting an apartment with neighbors.

If you rent a home that is in a community your rent typically includes additional amenities. Most communities offer lawn service, a pool (and it’s maintenance), trash removal, and in some cases snow removal within their rental price.

    • Hello Bev,

      Thank you so much for your comment! There are for sure “pros” and “cons” when it comes to renting vs buying. One of the cons being some restrictions in changes.

      We have found though that those rules do vary quite a bit depending on the owner of the home. If you are using MHVillage to find a Rental Home we give you the option to contact the owner directly though so you can always ask those questions ahead of time.

      Thank you again for reading!
