What’s Scary About Buying a Manufactured Home?

There are a lot of things to be scared of around Halloween – ghosts, zombies, running out of candy for trick-or-treaters before it even gets dark – but buying a manufactured home should not be one of them.

Still, we often hear from customers that are curious about manufactured homes, but are frightened about making a move into a different type of dwelling. We get it, and that’s why we’re here – to make the buying process easier, and to help our customers feel more secure and confident that the house they select through us will be the best choice for their families.

These are some of the fears we make go away every day.

“It will cost too much!”

No, it won’t. As with a site-built home or a car or any other major purchase, there will be models in your price range and some that are too costly. But when you compare what your budget can afford in traditional housing to what you’ll get in a manufactured home, you’ll discover that you’ll always get more with a Ma Williams home.

“It will be too small!”

Customers who believe this still refer to manufactured homes as ‘mobile homes,’ and expect them to come in only two models – single wide and double wide. What they find when we explore floor plan options are homes as big as 3,600 square feet, with large rooms and luxurious kitchens and plenty of space for home offices, spare bedrooms and other amenities.

“It isn’t safe!”

We’ve blogged about this before. According to the most exhaustive construction safety studies, manufactured homes built after 1994 all conform to enhanced requirements adopted by HUD. They are as safe as site-built homes.

“Mortgages, escrow, site selection and preparation – it’s all too confusing!”

This might be true – if you work with another company. But at Ma Williams we pride ourselves on making the buying process as easy as possible. Your representative will be with you every step of the way, explaining options and recommending solutions. With Ma at your side there is no reason to be intimidated.
