Manufactured Homes: On Pace for A Record Year?

These days it seems as if more people are discovering the many benefits of manufactured home living. And if you are considering making the move as well, the timing has never been better.

Some industry experts are predicting that 2018 will be a banner year for manufactured home purchases. These are just some of the reasons why.

1. We’re Ten Years Out From the Housing Crash.

A decade ago the housing industry was in crisis mode, but the recovery from those dark times is now complete.

2. Housing Prices Are Going Up

Why is this good news? Because many people who are looking into manufactured homes are selling their current residences, and will be able to clear more equity from that sale. To maximize the impact of that equity they can choose a manufactured home with a lower price point. In doing so they can continue to enjoy all of the quality, comfort and amenities they prefer in a home, at a mortgage rate and payment they can afford.

3. More Options

Are you looking for an entry-level residence as your first home? Do you have a growing family and need more space? Or are you getting ready for retirement, and wish to move into a smaller home that is still spacious and comfortable? Whatever type of residence you are seeking, there is a manufactured home to fit your needs. Ma Williams offers floor plans with a wide range of sizes.

4. A New Housing Shortage

According to the chief economist of the National Association of Realtors, there is a shortage of more than 8 million housing units in the United States. Manufactured homes are in a much better position to fill that gap.

5. No More “Stigma”

The perception of manufactured homes as trailers finally seems to be going away for good. With celebrities and star athletes and millionaires opting for manufactured homes in places like Malibu, California, it’s hard to still make the argument that such dwellings are somehow inferior to stick-built homes.
