Manufactured Homes Provide Incredible Value to Individuals & Families in the Tampa, FL, Area
Manufactured homes help to bring an important part of the American Dream – homeownership – within reach for an ever-increasing number of people in the Tampa, Florida, area. Though sometimes still referred to as “mobile homes,” the factory-built houses of today actually bear little, if any, resemblance to the single- and double-wide trailers built decades ago. Contemporary manufactured homes are built to comply with a stringent federal code and are virtually indistinguishable from site-built houses. The only substantive difference between a manufactured home and a site-built home is, of course, the price. Buyers of manufactured homes, be they retirees or those looking to start a family, benefit by receiving more value for their housing dollar.
The growth in the number of manufactured home communities in the Tampa, FL, is indicative of the desirability of this type of housing. Communities of manufactured homes can be separated into two basic categories:
- 55+ communities – These are communities populated largely by people ages 55 and older. Typically, no one under the age of 18 is allowed to live in a 55+ community. Age-restricted communities cater to the lifestyle goals of active adults by providing age-appropriate facilities and activities, as well as affordable housing.
- All age communities – Unlike a 55+ community, an all age community is designed to accommodate families with growing children by the provision of family-friendly amenities and close proximity to schools, stores, and medical facilities.
The Florida Manufactured Housing Association, Inc. has created this website in part to provide a wealth of information about manufactured houses to prospective buyers. Our organization is dedicated first and foremost to promoting the myriad benefits of factory-built housing and the continued growth of manufactured home communities in the Tampa, FL, area and elsewhere in the Sunshine State.
