What You Need To Know Before You Buy A New Manufactued Home

The decision to purchase a home is most likely the most important decision that you will make in your lifetime. Knowledge of the home and the purchasing process is critical to your long term security, happiness, and financial future. This is true whether the home you purchase is a site-built home or a manufactured home. I have listed some important questions below that are worth considering before you purchase a manufactured home.

Placement Location

It’s obvious that floor design and layout are going to be important factors to consider regardless of whether or not you choose to purchase a site-built home or manufactured home. However, unlike a site-built home, manufactured homes are “mobile” which means that a homeowner can choose where he/she would like to live–private personal property, a manufactured home community, or in a residential area. If you decide to go with a private property lot, you need to make absolutely certain that you will be able to secure a permit from the local housing regulatory agencies and determine if any restrictions are in place that might prohibit a manufactured home from being placed on the property.

Other important factors to consider regarding placement and location is property value–meaning is the particular neighborhood or community in a location where housing is well maintained and property values will appreciate?

Know What You Want Before You Buy

Knowing what you are going to buy and how much you are willing to spend is vital to your purchase satisfaction. Often buyers will arrive at a manufactured home dealership and will impulsively buy or be sold on a home without consideration for the long term effects of the decision. A home purchase is something that is usually a lifetime commitment and should be purchased with that critical mind set.
