Manufactured Homes – How to Buy the Perfect House for You

Manufactured HomesManufactured homes are an excellent housing option for all potential homeowners, whether they are looking to buy their first home, upsize from their present home, or find a home for their retirement. This is because today’s manufactured homes are quality crafted structures that deliver better overall value than site-built properties. If you’re considering a manufactured home for your next residence, the many options you have for its location, floor plan, financing, and other considerations may make the process seem overwhelming. However, the process is made easier when you’re able to gather the information you need from the right resources.

There are two important steps to take when considering manufactured homes as a housing option:

  • Learn about the industry – You’ll need to gain insight on deciding between different housing types, choosing homeowners insurance, attaining financing, hiring service providers, getting the proper building permits and permissions, and more. From there, you can make an informed decision about what type of manufactured home is right for you.
  • Make the necessary decisions about your home – If you decide to buy a manufactured home, you’ll have a whole set of decisions to make, such as where to build the home, whether you want to buy or lease the land, who will build the home, and what floor plan will work best for you, among other choices.

The process of learning about manufactured homes and buying a manufactured home is made easier with assistance from the Florida Manufactured Housing Association (FMHA), an organization founded to promote the best-built homes in America. Our members include builders of manufactured homes, community developers and owners, retail sales centers, financial institutions, law firms, and others who can provide you with the information you need to make informed decisions throughout the home-buying process. We will be pleased to connect you with one or more FMHA members who can help you get the high-quality manufactured home of your dreams built to your exact specifications at an affordable price.
