Benefits of Living in a Manufactured Home

Posted by Home Quest on March 18, 2024

An estimated 20 million Americans live in mobile or manufactured homes and have discovered the many benefits of living in these friendly communities. From affordability to a low-maintenance lifestyle, manufactured home living draws busy professionals, young families, and retirees alike.

As many people know, buying a manufactured home is less expensive than buying a single-family home. The median sale price of a home in California, for instance, was $843,340 in September 2023. By contrast, the average cost of a manufactured home in the Golden State is about $129,000, which is significantly less than the average cost of a traditional single-family home or condominium. This makes them a great option for first-time homebuyers, retirees living on a fixed income, or anyone on a budget.

While there may be a stigma attached to the mobile homes of yesterday, today’s manufactured homes are not only built to HUD code, but they offer many of the same designer features and on-trend floor plans as site-built homes. These homes feature high-quality construction, along with amenities such as luxury flooring, stone countertops, farmhouse sinks, barn doors, and open floor plans with plenty of windows to let in natural light. Many homes even offer exterior façade customization such as stacked stone, board, and batten, and other options such as porches and attached garages.

From fire safety to energy efficiency, manufactured homes also feature insulation, energy-efficient windows, Energy Star-certified appliances, solar options, and more, so both homeowners and investors know the home was built to code at every step of construction.

Americans are busier and more active than ever, so a low-maintenance home and yard are proving desirable for many homebuyers. Single-family homes can often become a burden as the years go on, from regular cleaning, yard work, and home maintenance to larger and costlier home repairs, with many people opting for smaller homes. A manufactured home can allow homeowners to enjoy life to its fullest without spending a lot of time on home maintenance or yard work.

Even while manufactured homes are often smaller than the majority of conventionally built homes, they can be just as unique and luxurious. There are also multiple mobile home parks and manufactured home communities throughout California that offer ocean views, scenic hilltop locations, and living in the heart of wine country.
