Why not a Manufactured Home?? Before you say it's a "Trailer in a Park", let me tell you of some of the advantages and the disadvantages. They are "factory" built to a higher quality standard than a site built home, with arrow straight walls and six inch outside walls for excellant insulation and excellant ceiling and underneath the flooring insulation They are built inside a controlled environment without any "weather" issues and are built using computer controlled machinery. Most homewoners tell me that they rarely pay more than $150.00 per month in gas bills even in the dead of winter.
They are affordable. My listings are all between $15,000 and $75,000.00. Where can you buy a site built home for that? They are built with the same or similar materials as a site built. Look at the higher end homes and ask yourself what these homes would be worth on property. Many single women (and men), newly weds, and "down sizers" find the life style works for them at this stage of their lives. There is little yard to maintain, yet enough to have a garden. There is little snow to shovel. You don't share a common wall with someone who plays loud music (or other bad habits) that desturb your peace at all hours of the day or night. Where else can you find great school districts for your children in an affordable home? With little outside maintenance, you'll have more time with your spouse, children, friends or to yourself.
Some of my buyers are Snow Birds who maintain a winter residence in the South and come back "home" to enjoy family and the Michigan summers. Others travel on the weekends because they have so little outside maintenance.
You don't pay property taxes.....ever unless you have a garage and then the annual tax bill will be less than $200.00 annually. Your lot rent (usually) includes water, sever and trash pick up and Club House use and the use of other common areas. Lot rent is usually comparable to Condo fees. Water and sewer should be worth at least $50.00 per month and trash pick-up about $40.00 each quarter (minimum).
Don't forget, they can be moved to land in some cases. They are "Mobile Homes."
The disadvantages might be.....lot rent, you are on rented land. The rent might go up. Guesswhat?? Everything goes up. Many Parks raise their rent $5.00 or $10.00 each year, but your property taxes or appartment rent (liely) go up correspondingtly each year as well and your home can be moved to another Park at very little expense (usually) if the Park raises the rent too high. It might be higher than property taxes or Condo fees. Some don't like neighbors that close. My response is pick a Park with larger lots or move the home, they are "mobile" after all and many Park managers will pay your costs to move the home. I have some good homes in very, very nice Parks. Some homes are cheaply made but you get what you pay for. We can help show you the "quality". If you are looking for a $10,000 home or under you are looking for a "trailer" and we don't sell these. They depreciate and they do. Look for value and buy a good used one. You will find some very nice homes on this web site. I believe they will retain their value in a good Park, in a very good community with a well built home. What do you have if you are renting after four years, beside rent receipts? No home is perfect. Some buyers don't like the life style, we will never change there views.....unless you give us that chance.
FIVE STAR HOMES, is pleased to announce that we have several private investors who will fund some short term loans (generally less than six years)and full term mortgages. With mortgage funding so tight, this opens a new market to Sellers anxious to sell their homes and to Buyers who don't quiet qualify for a Bank mortgage. This provides our Buyers enough time to raise their Credit Scores and qualify for a traditional mortgage and offers Sellers another way to sell their home. It's a "Win - Win" for all. Be sure an talk with our Brokers to see how this might help you.

OTHER HOMES.....We work with several Parks that will lease or sell the properties that they own - usually with "In House" financing. We are on all the Banks mailing lists and sell their Repos and Bank owned properties. Find a Park you like, but not a home? Contact us and we will help you find a home and maybe get it moved at no cost to you. Find a Manufactured Home you like, but not the Park, call us and we might get it moved to a Park you like at no cost to you. Often the Banks will finance with Repos with easier credit requirements.
