Manufactured Home Searches on the RiseDecember 14, 2020 | By Dara Giddings
I have sold a lot of manufactured (or mobile) homes over the years.
I am a believer in manufactured home ownership for several reasons including:
- More bang for your buck
- More options under the price home of a conventionally built home
- Manufactured homes can be VERY nice, often having significantly larger owner suites, bathrooms and kitchens than conventionally built homes.
I regularly counsel my customers to at least consider a manufactured home if they have restricted budgets or if a home on land is a requirement (again, cost-related).
It seems that the rest of the nation is catching on. According to an article from FloridaRealtors.org “Twenty-three U.S. states saw online searches for mobile homes increase 50% or more year to year” and “In Florida, the increase in manufactured-home searches (49%) was close to the U.S. average.”
