Many people buy mobile homes because of their accessibility, flexibility and reduced responsibilities of homeownership. But if you are considering buying manufactured homes for sale, there are still some questions you need to consider.
The most important problem is where to place them. There are two main financing situations, each with their different responsibilities: place your home on hired land in a mobile home park or place your home on a plot of land that you own or are buying.
Put your home on leased land
Mobile home communities offer many logistical benefits for their tenants. Communities are usually already provided with utilities, making the placement of your house fairly simple. If you are interested in placing your home in a rental community, you should visit different communities and learn about their policies and procedures.
Some practical issues to consider:
The installation procedures and fees: The manufacturer of your home will be responsible for the installation of your home. Make sure you know all the costs of installation and connection fees to utilities upwards.
The procedures governing community life: Whether it is about the responsibility for the land or lawn care; know the rules of parking regulations and also regarding pets.
Put your home on your own land
If you plan to place a house on land you already own or are planning to buy, you must make sure that your home can be legally placed on the ground. Many states require filing a permit before installing your home. This permit often requires a plan and a legal description of the property.
