Real Estate Investment 101: Getting Started

Why Buy A Manufactured Home For Your Land?

When you think about building on your land, it's wise to consider manufactured homes in addition to building a stick-built home from the ground up. Manufactured homes are pre-built homes that are delivered in sections to their final destination and assembled there. These homes can be left on a temporary foundation so they can be moved, or put on a permanent foundation so they can't be relocated and are considered real property.

When building on your land, consider manufactured homes. Your real estate agent can help you find the right manufactured home supplier for your needs, and you can benefit from going this route for homeownership. Learn more here.

You can get a home more cheaply 

If you need to build on a budget but still want a sizable, quality home, then consider manufactured homes over traditional building. Manufactured homes are constructed away from your home's site and delivered to your property in sections. They are then finished with assembly on the area of your land where you want the home. Since you don't have to pay for lumber, individual construction, labor, and other costs and instead have the price of your home pre-determined when you buy it, it can be much cheaper to buy manufactured homes than building from scratch.

You can get a home more quickly

Do you need a home within a few weeks or months and can't wait to have one built for you? An advantage to buying a manufactured home for your land over building one is this: once your home has been delivered and assembled, it's ready to move into. Spend time having a private well or septic and electricity hooked up while your manufactured home is being readied so you're ready to move right in once setup is complete.

You can still customize your home

Just because a home is pre-fabricated from a standard blueprint—of which you can still choose—doesn't mean you can't have a custom home. Manufactured homes can be customized in many ways with additions added to the overall structure of the properties and custom features put within the homes. Choose your budget and then pick the manufactured home that fits your budget and has the custom features you desire so you can have your home built and designed the way you want it.

Your homeownership dreams are a reality with manufactured homes, and you don't have to spend all your money on real estate in the process. Consider putting a manufactured home on a permanent foundation so you can get more for your investment.
