Manufactured Homes for Sale – Find Your New Home
All new manufactured homes for sale in the United States must comply with strict federal regulations that impose baseline standards for strength, durability, fire resistance, wind resistance, and energy efficiency, as well as performance requirements for the HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems. Formerly called “mobile homes,” today’s manufactured homes are as good as, if not better than, traditional site-built structures.
An interesting fact about buying a manufactured home is that you don’t necessarily need to own the land it sits on. Land lease communities are specialized developments where owning a home tends to be more economical than buying a home and the land it sits on combined. Though especially popular among retirees living on fixed incomes, land lease communities offer a viable housing alternative for buyers of all ages who are attracted by their affordability. It is important to note, however, that some land lease communities are age restricted. Often referred to as 55+ communities, retirement communities, active adult communities, and manufactured home communities, these age-restricted housing developments specifically cater to the needs and lifestyle goals of retirees.
Whether you think you might want to live in a land lease community or on property you own, FMHA.org contains an extensive listing of both retail home centers and manufactured home communities that can help you find your perfect home:
