With the cost of housing continuing to rise, finding quality affordable housing can be challenging. You may not have thought about a manufactured home as an option. We outline some of the benefits of a manufactured home over an apartment.
For the cost of the average apartment rent, you can often own your own manufactured home.
When you live in an apartment, you are paying rent toward a property you do not own. When you purchase a manufactured home, your monthly payments go toward paying off a home that you own. Once your manufactured home is paid for, your monthly cost of housing decreases dramatically.
In an apartment, you are likely sharing one or more walls with a neighbor and probably hear them at some point throughout the day. When you own a manufactured home, there are no shared walls. When you head outside, you can relax in a yard that you don’t have to share with anyone else unless you want to.
When you own your manufactured home, you can decorate your home to your liking. You can paint walls as you see fit, make upgrades to the inside of your home and decorate as you like. Most manufactured home communities have some restrictions or guidelines for the outside of your home, but these are easy to follow and ensure the community looks great.
You will no longer have to fight with your apartment neighbors for a parking space. You will have a dedicated parking space right next to your home just for you.
More rooms for less money
Apartments can quickly become unaffordable when you need three bedrooms. With a manufactured home, three bedrooms are a far more common and affordable option for you and your family.
Living in a manufactured home provides many benefits over apartment living. Take your time to find a home and community that is the perfect fit for your needs.
