Manufactured Homes vs. CondominiumsBy jh_admin In Real Estate
Studies have shown that more people are choosing a comfortable lifestyle, traveling, and creating experiences and memories over costly housing and other high-ticket purchases. So it’s understandable that manufactured housing is becoming a more popular option for affordable and low-maintenance homeownership.
Everyone from first-time homebuyers to retirees can enjoy a new manufactured home with two or three bedrooms with features such as island kitchens with quartz countertops and farmhouse sinks, designer lighting, tile or stone showers, freestanding bathtubs, an abundance of windows for natural light, barn doors to separate rooms, and more. Some manufactured homes even have porches and attached garages available as an upgrade.
All of these amenities come at a fraction of the cost of a traditional site-built home, with very little maintenance compared to a tract home with front and back yards. Even compared to a condominium, a manufactured home still has multiple advantages, including no shared walls, more privacy, and no HOA (Homeowners Association) dues.
“Manufactured homes are not only available in spacious floorplans up to three bedrooms, but they are built to HUD code and often constructed better than site-built homes,” said Shane Joffe, general manager and partner of HomeQuest. “From affordability to quality of life, manufactured homes are the perfect answer for many homebuyers.”
Joffe also notes that more cities are streamlining the permitting process, making it easier for homebuyers to get their manufactured home permitted and installed.
In addition, for those who want to enjoy the best of the west coast’s lifestyle, there are many manufactured home communities throughout California. HomeQuest works with communities throughout the Southland as well as Central and Northern California, offering an ideal location for everyone.
